Assetto Corsa is one of the best racing simulators in the world, without a shadow of a doubt. What has helped the popular game is the huge amount of modded content that has been developed over the years, from formula cars to closed cockpit racers, to touring cars.
One of the best areas of modding that has gone overlooked is that of drifting: the game isn’t really designed for it, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be done.
Here, we have here a list of some of the best drifting mods for Assetto Corsa, including cars and tracks. Strap yourselves in for a bit of sideways action!
1. Drift Workshop Street Pack 2018
AssettoCorsa.Club features a huge range of mods for Assetto Corsa, and one of those is the stunning Drift Workshop Street Pack 2018. If you want to get started in the drifting world in Assetto Corsa, this might just be the pack for you.
The car list is huge, with 13 in total available, including the Nissan Skyline R32 and R34, Toyota AE86, and the Ford Mustang Fox Body. This is something that you have to download for your Assetto Corsa installation.
2. Kartodromo Drift Mania
Moving on to track mods, and this is a good one. Scratch made on RaceDepartment by Black Velvet Tzenamo, the track is located in Athens, Greece.
While you can’t have AI on the circuit due to the drifting nature of it, there is nothing to stop you from getting on an online server with some friends to get some drift action between yourselves going.
The track features 20 pit boxes, replay cameras, and is compatible with the Sol graphics mod.
3. Nissan 240SX S14.5 Drift
Download: aiPod Drifters
Drifting mods are certainly harder to come by for Assetto Corsa, but this is one of the best. With high horsepower and some fun physics, the 240SX is one of the most awesome Japanese drifters available in the game.
In Japan, drifting is a big deal, with regional championships and drivers competing internationally; the Nissan 240SX would be the perfect weapon for drifters in these heated contests.
4. Supra Drift 1.5JZ Switchriders V2
As mentioned above, drifting is a big thing in Japan, so it’s not a surprise to see plenty of Japanese cars in the mix of the best drifting mods for Assetto Corsa for you to download. We have looked at Nissan, now we are looking at a Toyota.
The Supra is one of the most popular cars in the JDM world, and despite a new version being out, the classics are still what people love the most.
This stunning mod is perfect for drifting in the racing sim, with great physics, real Supra drift sounds, and a BMW gearbox so that you can hammer this car around the circuit.
5. Assetto Corsa Link ECU FD Pack
Download: aiPod Drifters
What makes this mod great is that we have a couple of European and American drift machines featuring. Japanese cars are the popular choice, but who’s to say that you can’t get drifting in a Mustang or a BMW?
This ECU FD Pack features a drifting BMW E46 and Justin ‘JTP’ Pawlak’s Ford Mustang, as well as a Nissan 370Z and a Nissan S14 into the mix too.
This is a great blend of sports cars from different continents, and hopefully one that you will enjoy with plenty of drifting.
6. Buxton Oval, Drift & Figure
Buxton Raceway is located in the UK, and features a 380 metre oval with lots of steel fencing. On top of that, there is a cool figure-of-eight circuit, which is perfect for drifting.
It’s another high-quality mod from RaceDepartment that is not only great for drifting, but also for a bit of banger racing as well. Just be wary of those walls – they are going to bite you if you get into them!
While the list of high-quality drifting mods isn’t as extensive for Assetto Corsa, there are some real gems out there to download. Drifting mods are tough to come by, and don’t feature as much on sites like RaceDepartment, but if you can get a few of these installed into your sim, you’ll have an absolute blast.
