    Ok, so I'm interested in getting a MkIV Supra. I don't know if it's because I've reasonably new to the drift scene or some other reason but I've never seen one skid that isn't heavily modified.

    So does anyone have any experience drifting these or even how they are on the road etc?
    Thanks in advance!

    Just do a search on youtube dude, the twin turbo manual ones slide rather well :nod:

    I had one but it was a NA manual. It was rather good too. That good it put me into a lamppost at 70ish :) when I drop't it down a peg. Plus there cheap. :)

    I think why you dont often see them is because theyre not cheap and you can get a well spec'd s body for the same or less than a manual supra standard. Lovely cars tho imo :) i'd love one!

    I briefly drifted a N/A manual mk4 and it was really good! Go for it

    I've had a go in an n/a mk4 with a welded diff. Drifted really well it was only on a kidney track at pod but it never struggled for power. They do weigh a fair bit but still have very nice steering and handling.

    They run a torsen style lsd as standard which aren't the best for drifting but easily good enough to do a couple of drift days and see if you like it.

    In short I'd say get a supra.

    Cheers for the advice guys!
    Think I'm gonna check out a few NAs and Turbos and then see how much I can get for the Skyline!

    My mate loved putting his back end out, so they do drift. But they are sought-after cars and command a price to match, which is why I think you don't see that many as drift cars

    I'm sure they can drift perfectly well but if you want a nice twin turbo one then you'r still talking quite strong money for something which you'r going to end up bashing and abusing, perhaps better to get something a bit cheaper unless money isn't too much of an issue?
