Default suspension plus diff question

Ok i got 2 questions to help noob drifters(not me, got into it a year ago)

1. For those on a budget and cant afford kybs or even lowering springs, what can they do to drift safely

2. Is welded diff worth it than a vlsd for those who cant afford one?

If you can't afford either of these things you can't afford to drift. Drifting puts alot of stress on your car and when you break something(you will) you're going to need money to fix it. If you can't afford lowering springs just keep the stockers in there. Welded is better than vlsd for drifting so I'd go with that since it's cheaper anyways.

Don't jump on the bandwagon man, the world isn't holding it's breath waiting for you to become the next DK.

signature material, debating on replacing my current one with this one..


topic related, if the stock ones aren't blown, keep them, roll is good for weight transferring, and weight transferring is good when you are driving an underpowered car.

before you drift.. think about what you're doing and if you are willing to take the chance of loosing the money you invested in your car either mechanically or wrapping it around a pole.
