    I'd love to see a GTi-R trying to drift; I know there's one video of a guy on a roundabout, and plenty of people in the snow, but that's not the same thing.

    Yeah a pulsar drifting sounds fun can't you remove front drive shafts to make it rwd
    I think this has been done by someone before

    Removing the front drive shafts will just make the wheel bearing collapse, and I'm sure sure that the viscous coupling would last very long (or even if it would send any drive to the rear at all).

    Sascha from Oz did it about 8 or 9 years ago, didn't work too well.

    Well, I had mine drifting on a roundabout about five minutes ago... :shock:

    Obviously that has more to do with the rain than on my "mad skillz" or the inate driftability of a short wheelbase AWD car. - I always expect a bit of understeer on wet roads like this, but the back doesn't usually step out; lift-off, a touch of opposite lock, back on the power, and I was back in the right direction.
    It behaves better than my R-reg Fiesta did in a similar situation; the upshot of that was that I could get it straight in time to avoid the concrete post holding the gaurd rails... but at least that stopped me going over the edge and into a river. :lol:

    Some of you may also have RWD cars but the reason for posting here was to get some good powered GTIR's for the drag racing.

    Surely some of you have upgraded your chocolate 'boxes though? Big BHP GTIRs usually have quaife upgrades.

    Do I get a hefty discount on my insurance if I run and beat my best time?

    You don't ask, you don't get ;). I'm up for this though as long as my car is ok at the time.
