Pontiac Firebird Trans Am ’78 drift

Very cool looking car with lots of power. Basically a text book drift car. I have a race tune for the Firebird already and a drift tune was a perfect addition to add to it. Drifts great and looks awesome doing it. Don’t see too many people on GT6 online drifting in this car, but they are missing out. My favorite thing about this car is the color choices and spoiler options etc. I have mine in black with gold AKA the standard “smokey and the bandit” colors, but for drift you can get a lot crazier with the paint. The suspension may be a little stiff for you, but if it is just raise the ride height by about 10 and go down about one or two in extension and compression. Possibly lower the anti roll bars down to about 3 also. Just test it out for yourself and see. You will know if it’s too stiff when you start sliding off the track everywhere when you think you would of made it. The transmission in this car is totally different from what I would normally do, but I think it works great. Long gears which work perfect for a muscle car since they usually push all the power down at once. Posted by Rasheed Korayem.

    How well to your GT5 tunes translate over to GT6? After looking over your old tunes I realized there were many I hope to make use of in GT6

    • Steven Sevarns

      Some of the tunes will be similar on gt6, but some will require drastic changes. You can compare and see if they will work or not.

        Thanks. Can’t wait to see what you do with those new VGTs. I sense a big spring update. Can’t wait!
