    Greetings from a fellow S13 fan!

    I posted my setup a few days ago, thread is here. This setup was done on a DS3: https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/showthread.php?t=281386

    Also try looking in the general drift setup thread (generally when people ask for car setups everyone refers them to here - don't take offence if people reply to your thread asking "did you use the search button?", but it is considered good practice to search before starting a thread): https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/showthread.php?t=135527&page=4#post4310938

    The S13 is quite a common drift car, so there's probably loads of random tunes for it on other sites too.

    How long have you been drifting for? I've been drifting for a year or so, and as you see from my S13 tune it is low on power compared to some others. I still enjoy underpowered cars and would highly recommend them - IMHO they can be more of a challenge than high powered cars in some ways since you have to do more work with the steering and braking as opposed to relying on lots of grunt.

    Cheers,

    Bread

    Try TwinTurboCH's "Universal S-Chassis Tune" from the drift depot. It's designed for the wheel, but still works very well on DS3.

    TTCH's tune is not the most aggressive, but I use it as the base tune for all my S-chassis cars before tweaking them to my liking.

    On most of my S-Chassis cars, I run my own diff setup, but I do have one S13 that is set up pretty much identical to TTCH's (including the fully locked, 60/60/60 diff). To me, the fully locked diff really makes the car feel like a missile, which is what I was aiming for with the build of that particular car.

    One thing that I've found on all my S-Chassis cars is that they feel much better with about 100kg added after stage 3 weight reduction. Without it, I find they all have too much wheel spin.
