Never drifted a bussie, but I imagine they are butt heavy like bugs and therefore a real PITA to keep the rear under control and not try to lead the way. My ghia was the easiest, followed by any of the squareback. The safari didn't have the power, the super was way too easy to get sideways. Swing axles get goofy really fast.

Recall the swap ends comment earlier.

My Notchback was very well balanced. It was lowered and had a 4-wheel wheel alignment. It never failed to go where I pointed it.

OTOH, the panel van.... I left a dance at the WOW Hall at midnite on New Years Eve, had an Olds Toronado pull out of a parking lot right in front of me, and spun out of the right lane and bounced off the curb four lanes over. The wheels were locked to the left so I side-stepped the clutch and spun back around, but there had been a police car sitting at the light I slid through backwards.

We had a nice chat and I convinced him it was the Olds' driver that was drunk and we parted ways without so much as a warning.

Generally they do swap ends easily. The guy that did the Forza runs said in another video that rear-engined cars are easier to drive backwards, but there is also a lot of suspension tuning, of the tire pressures and camber. I suspect the Ackermann as well, but I don't know if the game engine exposes that.

A notch is basically the same as a squareback, so I can see it being well mannered.

Why is that gasser bug engine sitting at an angle? Has to be killing the CV joints. Never mind, it's a toy.

How could I have forgotten the first pics of an Amarok I took in 2010 when it was entering the regional market?
