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.
i could drift my eta. but i was in first gear going slow and holding the brake just to keep the one tire spinning. to do proper drift when entering a corner at 60+mph, you need a good amount of hp to keep the tires spinning. there is no way in hell you can tell me someone took a m42 and threw the thing in a corner at 60+mph and was able to drift by using throttle only.
