Chevrolet El Camino SS 396 ’67 drift

I really love this cars looks, but it is so tricky to tune. I have a race tune, working on a drag tune, and now have a drift tune. Each time I try to tune this car it gets harder and harder. The fact that the back is a truck bed makes it spin easier, and the insane amount of torque doesn’t help the situation. The drag version I am working on, for example, can not go in a straight line. Hit the gas and eventually it will randomly send you into the wall. That is where I got the idea to pivot and do a drift tune first. It is already going crazy, so I mine as well put it to use.

It is still a little tricky to get use to for drifting, but much easier than the other tunes. However, the huge amount of torque is what makes it so crazy. You barely have to hit the gas for this car to start moving. Also, it wants to slide. Just touch the gas enough to get it around the corner and not any extra as it will slide right off the track. After some practise I got much better drifting with it, but you still have to work for it to get great drifts.
