Renault Twingo Drifting

Here is a short clip that shows the Renault Twingo drifting. Well, it shows the Twingo trying to drift. It sees limited success. A short wheel base, RWD car with a maximum of 90 hp, isn't a Porsche 911. At least it was worth a try though.

It has little to do with its power numbers, "A short wheel base, RWD car with a maximum of 90 hp" is actually better for drifting becasue of its small wheel base. Problem is the Twingo has been nannied to death, the short wheelbase in slick conditions (or intentional drifts) simply wants to flip its nose with its tail.

Without the nanies we would be seeing 180 degree twingos in London rain...

What do you mean by "the nannies?" What actual feature of the car is this referring to?

The old ladies that hide in your car that tell you what you should and shouldn't do!

In the UK at least the term nanny often means overprotective or interfering with personal choice. Commonly used is nanny state for when the government tries to make decisions for people that they might otherwise make for themselves. :/

You got that right! But it's still a sweet video. Whoever is driving pushed the little Twingo to the limit and it shows that the little car can be fun to drive. This is why I think an engine swap would turn this into a off road beast!

Renault could have really done with have the back end a little looser and more like a RWD car and I think you could have some really good fun with that.
