i was looking at a car mag today. think it was honda tuning...and this guy converted his 91 civic hatchback to rear-wheel drive! they give a step-by-step description of it too. he did it cause he wanted to drift in his honda. of course its a major major project.
drifting in fwd isnt complete loss. many people can make the cars lose rear traction and slide all the way through the turn just like a rwd car but with not as much power. and for just stepping on the throttle and make the tail slide requires lots of torque, i doubt many cars can do it without having to try to rev the engine and drop the clutch, still gotta use the brakes to break traction.
