    well...... if you twisted my arm i would have one! lol
    I love the old spitfres and GT6's and reckon they would look awesome screeching around with some decent wheel and a bit of bodywork clad in some garish colour....Nice

    These old girls would need serious work to drift well, I work on old Triumphs for a living, and GT6/Spitfire rear suspension is shocking, you'd be dead pretty quickly, with out a rear end swap to something decent, they go sideways quite nice as standard as the rear end is cack, need some work to make a good drifty beast.

    Would actually love to see some old skool UKDM tyteness on the scene, but to be quite honest, would take quite a diehard fan to drift one, as the thing will spend twice as long off the road as it ever does on it.

    If it was me tho I'd have a GT6, with 2.5 TR6 engine on EFI ITBs, lairy cams, pushing 180bhp, will be plenty for a little car like a GT6.

    I spent ages rebuilding a spitfire when i was younger, complete body off rebuild. To be honest i probably could have done a better job! Bu i know what you mean abou the rear suspension, they tuck under a fair but huh?
    I still recon it would be awesome, and worth the work. Try replacing a load of the panels and all the unreliable stuff.... which if i remember was everthing except the heater.... I think a GT6 with a modern engine and suspension and some creative bodywork would turn some heads for sure, but i think they are still expensive for what they are considering how much work they would need.

    Sniff my Diff
    Well I hope to walk the path that Bon Bon has walked once with a D1 spec BMW M3 with euro twist as I have about 80% of the parts now. Once the roll cage (last of the majors) is bought and welded in, I can then fit the rest of the bits that have been littering the house over the last 6 months. Then the real fun begins, practice and lots of it, eventually one year I would love to compete.

    Gota bring it to these neeeesssans and show all the following that there are other manufacturers cars that can drift well :nod:

    I wouldnt worry about the wear, only happens when parking up and really tight turns and the fact the tyres jump means it aint so bad. DO IT!
    I am currently working on a Ford for drifting practice and its slow work getting parts together and sorting the modding needed to get a sapphire a little more lock as few people do it, cossies make great circuit racing cars=little lock:cry: , but I am on it, I reckon early next year should see the cossie getting some practice in.

    Welding my diff was the best mod i have done by far! They arent that bad for daily driving i used mines for 6 months!

    I also hope to build a D1 Spec Sierra using a 24v v6 cossy! but we will see what happens over winter after my pay rise!
