No, because you can't technically drift in a FWD car. If you run a search in the archived forums, there are lots of threads about this - you can do some stuff that's kinda like drifting, but not true drifting unless you have a RWD car...

Drifting as in making the backend swing out?! This car does do that unlike most front wheel drive cars! Some say they "left foot brake" to make it do it or you can push it and it'll do it by itself.

Good luck in your playing!

It depends on your definition of drifting, if you define drfiting as nuetral steering then yes it can do it very well, if you define it as the big craze over seas were alls your doing is over steering, well no you can't do it.
