    I've actually been transforming my 98' Mitsubishi Eclipse into a drifter. Only problem is I don't know where to go drifting in Indiana. Are there any tracks that allow drifting or any spots?

    Uh.... you're trying to learn to drift in an eclipse? Before researching places and groups to drift with, you should probably research how drifting works.

    It wasn't the best option but my only option and I've drifted it a couple times and have gotten a few good runs in it. Hoping to sell it soon and maybe get a 240sx or something of the sort. But for now im stuck with the eclipse.

    You have not successfully drifted your fwd car. You're not going to learn anything about driving attempting to do so, either. Go do some autox or something.

    98 eclipses were either fwd or awd from the factory.

    I actually did not buy from factory. The guy i bought it from was working on it and changed a lot. So not sure if he changed it it from awd or fwd to a rwd. But lol it is a rwd and i will post a pic soon to prove it. Lol i know how drifting works and it would pretty much impossible with a rwd or awd.

    So ya, it's been done, as we all know.
    I will shit a brick if stenoree produces the goods, and some of you have to eat your words. :)

    Question is, how is it converted?
    Transverse mounted engines don't make good candidates for rwd. You could delete/block off front axles, I guess, but then all the tq would be going to the rear stock drive train which is only meant to handle half of it.
    Or you do a complete refab with longitudinal engine/transmission.
    Buschur made a conversion kit.

    I, for one, look forward to OP'S pics.

    Lmao i am going to throw the car up on jacks tomorrow and have the rear sticking up so i can prove that it is a rwd. I have no need to lie about this shit honestly.

    No need to jack it up, just post a video rolling the tires off. Easier and more fun. Make sure that you have the ebrake on and the camera is watching the front.
