    Recently I bought a 1jz Soarer. Wish it was manual but for the price couldn't refuse the deal and the auto box is a lot better than I thought it would be!!

    SOOOO...
    1) is there anything you recommend me doing to my car before drifting it or trying it.
    2) anyone got experience with auto drifts and can give me some tips!!
    3) best wheel size for tire prices? want to try and stay on 18's
    4) What tire pressures should i have for daily driving as well as drifting?

    Coilovers and a welded diff, will Defoe help. Just practice with gear 1and 2 they are long gears

    a welded diff will make it more predictable. Coilovers will help with body roll and make it easier again. I've just started 'drifting' my GS300 and its quite hard imo in an auto. Especially my old heavy girl with no hand brake! lol
    As above, lock it out in 1 or 2 and get a feel for it. The handbrake will help initiate to start with before you get into weight shift drifts.

    Smaller the wheel the cheaper the tyre

    Pressures are a personal thing dude. Trial and error. if you're finding you spin out too much lower the pressure (y)
