thats my main concern.... i love the way my car drives now and dont want to change the way it drives and drift. but yeah, gotta love available parts at any auto store
its not really the way it drives, its the technique required to drive it.
the motor physically weighs less than a stock KA, so if anything my car is more balanced now than it was with the RB but the biggest thing to overcome was all the torque and the weight of the rotating assembly.
i know that sounds really strange, but its INSTANT throttle response. there is NO lag obviously so as soon as you press the gas you get an immediate response in the cars position and wheels spinning lol. thats GREAT once you figure it out but coming from only having drifted relatively small displacement turbo cars its a bit of a shock. and when you let off the gas while drifting, everything keeps spinning because its all so heavy (stock flywheel weighs 45lbs for example) so you have to really think ahead (a good thing).
its nothing that cant be easily learned if you know how to drive but it does require some time behind the wheel to figure it out. now that its been in for 6ish months now im tandeming and driving better than i EVER did with my RB. makes me wish i could go back in time to FD proam last fall and do it again. that was my 3rd event with the new motor and i drove it totally differently than i do now (i have about 8 or 10 events with it now)
