    Default what 4A for drift?

    I was at the DA round last may at la la and the comentator said somthing intresting "drifting is really hard on your motor" ......."um der Tim".... Hear me out. The fact that your car will sit there at the start line, then sit on the limiter for half a track and get up to high temps, Taxi for half a track then sit there again where it will cool back down. you stay stationary for 2 min then do it all again. If you draw the round you do that all again again! the motor will go from one extream to the next and back again in a matter of 10 min. At the Da round lots of cars were pulling out due to engine problems or failure.

    So i thought a descusion on "what 4A motor would be best for drift" would be intresting

    looking into things like "powerfull enough" and just as important "reliability"

    whats your experiance or opinion?

    Most will tell you, none of the 4A.

    SR, 3S, F20, etc.

    But a AE92 smallport 4AG with 272 cams and high compression would be reliable enough, providing you with enough power (maybe not enough as those big hp cars) but you'll definately be having fun and always out there.

    lol ok well as far as reliability goes. 4age are awsome. even stock ones jsut make sure they have oil and they will go for ages. they also make big power IF YOU HAVE THE MONEY. i kno of a person that is close to have 360rwk in a 20v turbo. but the motor more than likely ows him over 35g. If you want cheap power jsut go SR. spend another 4 grand on it and it will drift all day everyday.

    whatever 4a has the best life support system (oil cooler, radiator, fresh oil, coolant, prepared well etc) would be my bet

    4ac for DA

    but as for drift being hard on the motor... well yes that part is true, however those who thrash cold engines deserve to have engine issues.... ive always warmed my motor up to operating temp (and oil is up to temp also) before thrashing... same goes for the diff and box....

    then once you park it in then go out again,... it takes all of 30 seconds of normal running (idling then leaving the pits, then the form up area and onto the track) and its back up to temp in no time.

    4agze

    I have 2 friends who drift with them. Both stock (front mount cooler and exhaust) and both will drift QR in third fine, without bogging down or being ruthless on the drivetrain and motor.
