    First thing first the only way you can get an underpowered car to slide sideways is to drive it on a wet parking lot. S-15 might not even have enough power to spin the tires. S-15 with automatic trans has even less power. A modified S-15 for drifting will have about 200+ horsepower at the wheels and high reving the KA-24 will eventually cause engine failure. A Ford Mustang Chevy Camaro something newer with a wide selection of Performance parts might be easier to drift and drive everyday. A really good choice is the new Scion / Subaru rear wheel drive sport coupe.Drifting costs a lot of money because tires are not cheap having a car sponsorship for tires and performance parts is a good thing. Save up your money Good Luck

    Well i see your going for the RHD type cars (right hand drive) and for starters that car is a little powerful but if you got the touch you can do it but i would reccomend a nissan 140sx and swap it for the SR20DET engine then move up to the silvia. Thats what im doing right now haha
