z is not a drift car form factory. you can make it a drift car but it would cost about $12k to do it properly... my miata is worth less

That's silly. 350's are probably the easiest car to drift bone stock.

no... 350z is hard to initiate in drift and its pretty hard to control in drift as it always wants to regain traction and straighten itself out. trust me, i checked

i mean, i can get it sideways and keep it like that for a period of time but not long - it straightens itself out even if i dont want it to.

ps: s14 240sx is the easiest car to drift stock, not 350z
