I would never take a turn in snow without breaking the rear end loose, otherwise its kinda hard with 180HP and about 190lb-ft of torque in a 3200lb Mazda to do in the dry, Im not in the postion to replace any expensive parts yet...

those are some clean 929's and a 5-speed stock I never know they had those
a friend of mine had a 92 we used to beat up on and get sideways in the rain

how's the aftermarket for those things
good luck with the swap

No i dont know what drifting is, please tell me. I do understand you felling about this though, lots of the people on this board dont even drive. I happen drift to thats why in the section for posting a pic of your ride i actually post a pic of me drifting. 9ine Deuce I ended up on your car domian site a long time ago when i was looking into getting a car becides a 240. You said in the first post your car has a 13b swap? Got any engine pics?

Ithought he said he had a swap to but then I reread it

man these Luce's or 929's for say are getting VERY tempting..

are the steering wheel hubs the same as the RX7?? Nardi etc...?

I found that out on my mk3 supra turbo. The AE86 steering wheel hub is the EXACT SAME hub spline as the supra...and the cressida, and the trucks....go figure.

so i am GUESSING its the same for the other manufacturers....mazda forsay.

I just thought i would point out the ugly 2 spoke steering wheels thats all

but DANG i would love to swap a 1jz in one of those bad boys!

or just do a single turbo on the v6!!!

If you can drive a rwd 3300lb 4 door tank and toss it around in snow every corner you take for 5 months of the year then I consider it a drift car... work is in progress...
