Welcome NOOB!
Yup, this forum hates fads. We hate wings and neon and spinners and driftzzing. Take it with a grain of salt, it's all good fun... but seriously, we hate you.

Now, be a good NOOB and put your location in your profile and add something useful about your car in your signature like good NOOB's should do every time they join a new forum.

Holla hellaz loud!

Howdy, fellow noob here.

I'm not into drifting myself, but from what I understand it's a lot easier to drift cars with longer wheel bases, and I can attest to the fact that the short wheel base of earlier miatas can make things a little touchy at times. So just out of curiosity, are you using your 97 because it's what you have or what? Seems like it might not be a great platform for the sport.

Welcome newb.

I'll go ahead and tell you the secret: the trick to making these things awesome drifting machines is to take of the rear sway bar, completely, now.
