E36 Drift Tuned

Is it possible to drift tune an E36 to D-1GP standards? Could you keep it straight Euro Spec? Or will one have to mix and match with Japanese European and American parts?

This question doesn't even make sense? You want to make a E36 drift.... slap a small turbo on it..... or get a high geared (numeric) diff. And then learn how to drift

What makes a drift specific shock/spring?
All you need is a stiff rear end, with a softer front end and you have a drift setup. Thicker rear swaybar, thinner or no front swaybar, little camber in the back with like -2º or more up front. Making an e36 tail happy is very easy.

Japanese: D1グランプリ) (abbreviated as D1GP) is a production car drifting series from Japan. It was formed in October 2000 by Option Magazine and Tokyo Auto Salon founder Daijiro Inada (稲田大二郎), and drifting legend Keiichi Tsuchiya (土屋圭市). In December 2004, the D1GP was held in California Speedway, Fontana, California, USA as a non-championship US vs. Japan event, running alongside the JGTC race as part of the non-championship GT Live event.

As taken from www.wikipedia.org



I want to enter and E36 in there and own people Eurostyle
LOL maybe then some companies can get interested in the E36 again and invent useful parts for the 318is as well as body kits that don't look like ass. For example the company J-Blood makes brand new body kits for an 80's car! The Trueno. . Now I was just in eastern europe in june and july visiting my family and drifting has taken off there very well. Places like GERMANY! and Poland. So what I don't seem to understand is why no one will invest in the series and make some drift spec parts for european cars, aside from short shifters. Anyways I guess when I bought my Alpine White 318IS, it's trim reminded me of the Panda Trueno and I had a vision of the D1GP in Europe. Call me a dreamer but I here and now infront of all of you offically declare the 318IS Drift Project.

Alright, listen man.... i hate to be the one to break it to you, but drifting has become very popular lately, but it is in no way new. The reason you see "DRIFT SPEC" parts for sale now is cause of its popularity, and thats why the parts are MARKETED like that.

First off, the 318 is a pretty USELESS 3er (no offense guys) but in terms of power, theres only so much power you can get out of a 318, and why try when you have such flawless inline sixes? Theres about a MILLION companies that make body kits for busted old ass 80's cars. I had an AE86, and IMO it only looked good clean, and by clean i mean the jdm one peice bumpers, and so on.

Your posts don't make sense always when you post them? There are SOOO many companies that ARE interested in the E36, and even the E30 which make very useful parts for the vehicles!

And if you wanted a car that reminded you of a trueno, you shoulda gotten a 318ti, and you should stop watchin so much initial D

The kid i sold my AE86 to, ended up smashing it a week after i sold it to him, trying to drift a 130hp OPEN DIFF corolla..... go figure!

The only reason I want to use the M42B18 instead of a: M52B20, M50B20, or a S50B30, is because I don't have the money to buy one. I wouldn't know what to do with my M42, I don't have the equipment to do an engine swap, and parts are more expensive for the M52 and the S5. I'm still a student which isn't enough of an expense already. And umm yeaaaa the 4 door is narrower by 12.0 mm compared to the 2 door, and higher by 27.0 mm. Seems to me like those two small numbers can make a difference, no? Oh yea and no offence but the 4 door is just an ugly bastardization of a sexy 2 door.
