Correct me if I'm wrong, but you can't drift with a Front Wheel Drive.

Nice looking car nonetheless, but can't agree on the stickers.

Sorry man, but you weren't drifting. Drift just doesn't happen with FF.. you were just sliding.

-K

EDIT: SORRY -- Forgot to say, and I want to add: Your car looks DEAD SEXY!!

OK, I can't comment on the drifting or not drifting thing because I have no idea what you're talking about.



HOWEVER, I can comment on the look of your car....and it's HOT!

Grats on getting your tC and hooking it up so well!!!

Actually they are 18" rims...they just look like 19" with the low profile Hankook tires...
The Exhaust...when all was said and done...about $650.00
Custom Chrome Flowmaster tip...remove resonator and replace with about 20" of t304 2.5" pipe.
Used the TRD piece for the rest

Oh Yeah...the springs and sound system are on the way!!!

Thanks to everyone for commenting on my ride.

lol, drifiting in a front wheel drive car is possible, but i doubt most ppl could even do it. hehe =) so dont worry about that but sway bar drifiting?, how so? =) i guess it would add more handling? but yah =) congrats tho, you got a nice car =)


ooo *edit* i just found an old video of guys drifting in fwd cars, but like other and i have said you most likely just took a turn really fast and slid, drifting in fwd cars requires you to use the hand brake to stop ur rear tires and make them like slide out to the side, + when you drift you turn ur wheels opposite of the turn, which i highly doubt you did =), newayZ just trying to clear things up, if anybody knows how to hose a 3.8meg video, i can show you guys the civic drifting video

I saw a guy doing a burn out with a FWD car. Basically he got two cookie baking sheets and placed it under the rear wheels. Sure was a funny video.

LOVE those 18's, man. The car looks great, guess you went all out with accessories. It's nice to see a "hooked up" tC. I don't mind the stickers on the doors, but imo, the TRD sticker on the front bumper's a bit much. I like to keep it clean, and like when the stickers are all in one spot, in a row or column. Thats only my opinion though, the car still looks amazing.

EDIT: Also, where is the shop that you went to located? Are you by any chance in the NY area?
