Awesome idea's with the 240, I am about to get another one and will do an SR20 RHD conversion with it. As for the rant, I agree that it is should be used during racing and shouldn't really be a judged competition, but if you're really good at getting really far sideways and still coming out smooth and what not, you can make a good living, and that's why I do it. It's something I can do to make money and it's one of the most fun things I've ever done. However, in defense, you use a different style of drifting in competition versus real racing. I used to autocross, and I used speed or race drifting when I would autocross, and it cut my times by almost 25%. but in competition drifting you use style or show drifting and that does not require you to keep a whole lot of speed, it just requires you're angle to be much wider and further sideways than a race drift. It's not exactly true drifting, in that it does not keep to the history and origin of drifting, which was, as you said, downhill mountain-side racing.
