front wheel drive cars dont drift to well. best way and only way is to get the handbrake adjusted to your skill. e-brake till the car is almost all the way around as to a 180 then countersteer and hit the gas. dont floor it because your tires wont grab and you will just finish the 180. id do it alot in my 4door civic lx. worked out fine for me.

Add about 150 HP, to accelerate faster and convert it to rear wheel drive.

Listen to "requiem". FWD cars don't drift very well. AWD cars don't drift very well either, unless their drive-trains are heavily rear-biased.If memory serves me right, one AWD car (I think it was a VW) featured in the movie "F&F: Tokyo Drift" was specially converted to RWD to make it drift for the movie.Drifting in a Civic will need a RWD conversion or some serious e-brake (hand brake) action and skill. I've done a little drifting in 1980's VW Rabbits (Golf generation 1) and a VW Fox on dirt roads and in a '96 Civic hatchback using the e-brake on blacktop.

Well from experience, there's using the forementioned E-brake manuever or getting a new suspension w/ a very high spring rate in the rear. This way you can use a feint technique to execute it. By this method you'll accelerate to a point when you're near your turning point you turn in the opposite direction you're intending. Then quickly get off the gas, and turn the other direction and the weight transfer will get your rear end loose. I did this in my 4dr MK3 golf in the winter time in the snow. Was tons of fun!! Good luck.

Pull the hand brake and let it rip.
