You mean in ProStreet? The game doesn't allow any AWD cars to drift.

It's inline with D1 regulations. AWD cars have an advantage, FWD cars are hard to drift.

I know you've got a point, but how do you get a AWD car to drift properly? Unless you completely turned off every racing aid, and changed to the worst tyres, then coated the track with water...

I always thought that RWD cars were the best...

AWD cars drift differently to RWD ones. Ever watch top gear, especially with an evo where he manages to power slide the whole track using his pinky?

like, any drift comps/in magazines/in articles...

I happened to see a dude drifting a R34 GTR on this show on SBS...

Why aren't 4WD cars allowed? Unfair advantage?

About drifting an R34 and evos, they have to be converted to RWD. The GT Autosound/ DLS R34 in Drift Australia has been converted to rear wheel drive, and Is powered by a twin turbo LS2 engine I believe.
