    Hi guys I am just wondering, would it even be possible to create a semi-professional drift car out of any car? Because it seems like all cars nowadays are like Nissan S chassis and BMW e30-46 etc. etc.... Would it even be worth the effort to try and create a drift car out of an E60 V10 or something like that. Or would it not be worth the trouble since there are not a whole lot of ready-made drift components out there? Like for example wisefab... Could you build a real drift car out of a new GT86 without spending a shitload on custom made expensive parts?

    Look beyond the UK and there's a whole lot of different cars being used.

    But a semi-professional spec car is always going to cost a lot whatever you start off with. If you have the skill to do it yourself you can make anything work (either by making parts or adapting off the shelf parts for other cars), but if you have to pay someone else to do the work, it's gonna cost more.

    An e60 v10 would be awesome, but whether it would be worth the effort (money) all comes down to who is paying the bills.

    Anything can be. But some are gong to cost less than others.

    Semi professional needs more driver skills than car mods, and fully professional will involve so much custom mods to any car that it not matter.

    Yeah but if you can't buy a steering lock kit for an E60 how are you going to get like extra lock. Can u just cut up control arms and steering knuckles like any other car? Would that be the way professionals do it?

    You would just need a fabricator to make bits for you.

    So but then it would not be interesting because you can just get an e46 with wisefab kit and it will be a lot easier right? So building an E60 drift car will be very expensive then....

    So what would be more expensive to build than an E60 M5 drift car or an E46 drift car with the M5 V10 engine?

    Anything is possible, it's all about how deep your pockets are.

    Unfortunately it's the same with most things in life.
