Search for snow and ice. An NA 240 is not exactly a performance machine, but they can drift... A little. The $$$ spent to make an NA car drift well is going to be mucho (16v head at least).

A turbo car will have enough power to drift in the dry without the use of soap.

Everyone wants the cheapest way, none want to do it right.
It's simple enough to do it right, but that might cost more than $50 and might involve some actual intelligence.

They don't sell Vovlo here, but I imagine you could drift them. You can drift a Civic into a telephone pole too. Seen it.

240's are front wheel drive you can't drift them? You need to buy a Nissan Sentra, I have a few buddies who drift those things like crazy.

In all honesty though, you could weld the diff. Idk much about suspension but I'm sure chopping springs and welding the diff would get you started. Youre not gonna be able to drift it when it's dry with an open diff. Not easily at least.

DRIF-table = Diabetes Research Institute Foundation represented in a mathematical table. I need more information concerning what in particular about diabeetus you would like to address. I will compile this information at a rate of $60usd per hour, not likely to exceed 4 hours. So in short your looking at 240 dollars for your DRIF-table. http://www.diabetesresearch.org/diab...ute-foundation

Like already said by others, it won't come cheap. It takes a substantial amount of work to get a N/A 240 to drift. The short list:
Adjustable links in rear (panhard bar and torque rods)
Stiff springs/dampers
Big swaybars especially rear
Lower car w/ slight rake
Remove lots of weight
Spool/welded differential
Lower rear axle gear ratio
High rear tire pressure (45+psi)
Modify steering knuckles (for more steering angle)
Adjustable camber plates
Rigid engine mounts (RSI makes some badass mounts)

That should at least get you started. Should be able to make the car very driftable for around $1500 in parts. I slide my 242 fairly regularly with these simple mods and a stout engine.
