Many car enthusiasts enjoy drifting. This is a great way to have fun while driving and therefore completely enjoy driving. For those who are wannabe car enthusiasts, here is the simplest definition of drifting; it is a style of driving that involves using the throttle, clutch, brakes, steering input and gear shifting in order to over-steer the car while maneuvering between turns. The bottom line for drifting is to have fun! It does not matter whether you are doing it at a huge competition or just on your own. It is exciting for the driver if he can negotiate a track while the car is completely sideways.
There are two great reasons why many enthusiastic drivers love to and really enjoy drifting. For many, the adrenaline rush that is brought about by being able to move around a track while the car is on its side and smoke coming from the rear tires, is all they enjoy. A more reasonable one is that the art is a great way to learn how to control a car safely at any speed.
Now the big question is what is the best car for drifting? Well, drifting needs a rear wheel drive car that has an engine that is powerful enough to easily break tire traction. As a JDM car enthusiast, you want to know what car is best for drifting. We however, all know that not all JDM cars are easily affordable and the thought of how much it may cost to change from your current car to one that is more suitable for drifting, makes most of us just forget about ever owning a car that we can drift in. This should however, not be the case.
After a well done research, there is a list of ten cars that you can get started with. They are very good cars but relatively affordable compared to others in the same category. The list contains a variety of cars whose prices range from as low as $1000 to $30000.The cars have been arranged in order of rising prices.

The 1990s saw to emergence of a new trend in Japan which led to many young male drivers’ desire to customize older Nissans, Subaru and Hondas with different assorted parts like cat-back exhaust systems, body kits, and cold-air intakes. This became popular in the US after the release of the ‘Fast and Furious’ movie.
Originally, turners were mostly Japanese customized cars but this changed with time to include other cars like Dodge Neons, Hyundai Tiburons, and Chevy Cavaliers. Around 2008, there seemed to be a recession in the turner industry but not all was entirely lost. Today, the general automobile industry and tuning are enjoying an enthusiastic resurgence.
Here is a list of the top 10 best Japanese turner cars in the last 15 years, from 2000 to 2015
The most talked about aspect of sleeper cars is the fact that unlike Bugattis, Lamborghinis and other flashy cars, Sleepers are satisfying when it comes to offering great performance without attracting so much attention. These cars are the perfect proof that looks do not necessarily define the quality of a machine. A lot has been said about their very mundane style that makes them even hard to recognize in a parking lot. Now, this is definitely not the kind of car to go for if you love driving a car that attracts everyone’s attention. It is however, the type of car you would love if you are the kind of driver who derives satisfaction in having a car that seems slower but can actually overpower many expensive looking cars.
Sleepers are known for their relatively low cost of upkeep and prices. They do not get as much attention as rides with higher profile but once the true discovery of what lies underneath the less attractive look is made, many car lovers will definitely prefer them. Believe me when I tell you that these are the cars for all those who get it right when it comes to the essence of the real meaning of being crazy about cars; I am talking about real car enthusiasts.
I am looking for the best word to describe the look on someone’s face when they unexpectedly lose a speed contest to a car that they considered slow by just looking at it; of course it is a very natural conclusion. I definitely need your help describing that surprised, jaw-dropping expression that an all-confident contestant gets after having been beaten hands down- it can be very embarrassing especially if you had publicly registered your overconfidence. This is the reason why the ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover” expression works for car racers.
In the same spirit of talking about not judging by looks, sleepers are the craziest example one can ever use. Here is a carefully compiled list of 8 insane sleepers that you definitely do not want to race;
