Mein Auto: 323i E30 2-door
Exclamation Driftin Diesels

The Diesels just do not have a wide enough power band & throttle take up
I asked a customer whose Amarok we had suitably modified if I may test this.
Hitting the corner at about 140 kph, e Brake and then you have to have the motor spinning to start drifting without getting grip again.
Then it held the slide until I reached the apex and had to grab the next higher gear where the motor just could not REV up fast enough and the tyres gripped again
Maybe with a Auto box and tiptronic style system
BTW, do not try this at home
The Chinese would say "that I had some interesting moments"
