drifting is not low end torque, its hp. in drifting its being able to spin the tires at speed, and if you watch drifting comps, those guys are hitting the first turn at 80mph, locking the e brake then throttling out from there. the problem with a diesel is they are a low rev motor. so the revs your working with is a small range, say 500-1000rpms, while a proper drift motor, they work with 2000-4000rpms, yet alone more 500hp. while the 324td may be droppin 120hp, drift cars are normally around 600 at the wheels.

doable, yes. but youll have to be dead nuts on speed gear and the e brake and youll probably spin out more than anything.
I know a lot about cars. I can look at a car's headlights and tell you exactly which way it's coming
