So why did Road and Track say I have the best drift car? WTF...

The E92 M3 has won Road and Track's "Sultans of Slide" drifting comparison.

Yes the M3 could be a drift car. Rear wheel drive + 400hp + LSD = lots of fun. I use to drift a Nissan 240sx and with the power difference in the E92.. it only makes drifting even easier. A buddy of mine actually drifts his E46 M3 and hes won first place in a couple of local competitions.
