depends on the car.
i tracked my stock evo x(timed sprints, not proper circuit racing), and it wasnt too bad.
i remeber your car..........anything that moddified, normally gets a few issues.
now, to th OP...
if you dont specifically want to drift, and want a fun, practical daily, the mazda 3 mps are a decent hot hatch for a fairly decent price.
as mentioned, the 86/BRZ for rwd shinanigans.
if budget is no issue, go for a 35 gtr or LFA.
WRX and evos are good for a bit of track work and daily duties.
either way, when you do grab something, post pics and hit events!
SAU is one of the very few places ive seen who dont care what car you drive, so long as youre into cars.....
