Video: Are Diesel Engines Prime Candidates for Drifting?

Big, torquey engines seem to be well-suited to drifting, so why wouldn’t diesel powerplants also do well in the sport?

A few individuals already have already built some diesel-powered machines to go sideways, and they just might have confirmed our theory.

Black Smoke Racing is amazing. I was more a fan of the OM606 powered S123 but the new OM648 S203 is still cool. Just the 606 car is more realistic on my budget.

I wish we got manual S204s here in the US. Hell, I wish we even got manual S212s here... I'm envious of my relatives back home.

Yes and no. The miseducation/understand of diesels will end badly for many folks.

Tire AND diesel smoke?


 Food sales at events would be way down I expect:)
