Basic Drift Chassis Setup Part 3

By Mike Kojima

Alignment is one of the most important things in getting your drift car to handle correctly and a subject that is mangled quite a bit on internet forums.  It is important to make your alignment adjustable.  In the case of you having a popular car like a Nissan S chassis you can get adjustable front tension rods, rear toe, traction and camber links all off the shelf from companies like SPL Parts and Battle Version.  If you have cars with MacPherson struts in the front, you can often get camber plates.  Ground Control Suspension has camber plates for many different cars.

In part one of our series we spoke about the importance of good suspension which is probably the first major step in setting up a car for drifting.  Although the suspension is really important, perhaps just as important is a good limited slip differential.

If you have been following my series, “The Ultimate Guide to Suspension and Handling” on MotoIQ you have been getting a step by step education on the theory of suspension.  Due to overwhelming demand, I have decided to take a step back from the theory side of things and give some simple and practical advice on how to set up a drift car due to the literally hundreds of requests I have gotten on this.
