Lex is doing drift days for £50 then add the fuel (full tank) 3 or 4 sets of S/H tyres what ever you can get them for and the costs of getting there and back, works out around £200 for a good full days drifting.

R33's have enough power as standard to drift but the cost will be coilovers and a diff unless you shim it and how far you want to go with it.

It not too costly to get to stage 1, but either welding or changing diff is a must for doin skidz. Just ask BIG C, hard work on stando diff but easy and loads of fun with a 2way!!
Really u can get buy wth just diff and coilovers for a start, tyres, run either 16's or 17's cheap and well easy to get hold of.

the 2 way diff is road worthy mate, but sometimes on full lock, pulling away its a bit clonky, so you adapt yr driving to suit dave, then its just tyres, i get mine from the local garage for free, and ill go through about 4 tyres for a days drifting, plus £25 for fuel mate.......so its not to bad to be honest and its great fun, if need be come with me to one at the pod "flame and thunder" show in 2 weeks mate....:)
