also, bigger cars drifting tend to look more stable and less jittery.
the downside is that these cars are heavier, and less nimble. which isnt all that bad either... more weight to throw around means more weight to hold you down, and being more nimble also means you could lose control faster.
thats why 4drs are getting so popular in the D1GP and FD right now.
