I also need to use this car as a daily driver so im not trying to kill the gas mileage.
Does anyone use their mustang for drifting or autocross on these forums?
The V8 model would probably be the best choice in terms of performance, but would it be possible to use a V6 to be more cost and fuel efficient? or is that just a bad idea?
Would it be better to just go with a 2005+ model?
Any info or suggestions will be appreciated
i have a 1998 mustang gt that I daily and drift on almost a weekly basis . Mustang are actually not bad at all for drifting . Only main thing that I suggest would be coilovers and after you get done learning with the stick angle get a pair of cut knuckles which are lik 350$ or lower . Tbh in my opinion the mustang is the most underrated car to drift even though in reality it is pretty good and you can find them for cheap . My car has a dual caliper hydro ebrake setup which cost me in total a little under 1k . You can drift them itís all just a matter of practice like anything else .
