doable, yes. but youll have to be dead nuts on speed gear and the e brake and youll probably spin out more than anything.
You don't need 600 hp, those are professional ones.

Youtube is full of M40s and M42s going sideways.

My old M40 powered E30 had wheel spin too.

Wet tarmac and skinny stock worn tires.
