There's only so many people in the world who'll pay £3k for a Corolla without an MoT, surely it's time for a new underground movement?RWD is dead now, driving the left hand 2 wheels would be too difficult technically (GR8 4 ROUNDABOUTZ) so it's got to be front wheel drive!UNDERSTEERIN is where it'll be at in 2009 8) People will be grafting Triumph Herald front suspensions onto their Corsas, London Taxis will be cannibalised for their steering too and the price of those little knobs you fix onto steering wheels will go through the roof.The Autoshite brand could take advantage of this with a range of uprated track rod ends, a crossplys fitting guide and the best places to find a Talbot Alpine.What do you think? :lol:

There's fun to be had with motors where the handbrake operates the front wheels, wouldn't it be nice if Alfasuds suddenly became worth more than RWD Escorts.

That would be ace! I'm looking forward to seeing plenty of yoofs lusting after 845cc Renner 4s.

Cool, reckon you can get anodised air filters or a blue silicon turbo hose for them? You need about a 20% power increase, you know, so you can get the full 30bhp :wink:

Pretty much anything turbodiesel would be ace for understeering..... wait for the boost, make sure you have a decent amount of lock on and whoooooooo kerb city. Personally I'd love to see precision driving, like autotests, take off.... no doubt the yoof of today would claim it as their own and say they invented it but at least it takes a bit of skill. I know real drifting is an artform but sadly that translates into too much right foot on a wet roundabout being 'GR8'. show me an Asda carpark with cones laid out and lads in Corsas slaloming in reverse :)

As a youth I used to enjoy the sight of the local Post Office Commers returning to the depot and doing a stoppy (motorcycle term) ie a handbrake stop lifting the rear wheels off the ground and the rear of the van crashing down again

It is with some considerable irony that the greatest understeering car in history is in fact RWD.

Yep. There's a British Drift Championship (The BDC) and a European one (EDC) plus one in Ireland.

From personal experience (F525usx) this car is also GR8 4 DOIN DONUTS - quick change into second was also possible (mis-spent time when 14 with pal and free example of the above at far side of his father's yard!)

I remember reading somewhere that some of the DRIFTIN CRETINZ go playing on roundabouts on industrial estates on Sundays, applying a good dose of diesel to the road to, er, assist ... :shock: Come Monday morning when normal traffic resumes .... :evil:
