What?Waja cant drift?Yes,the normal production proton waja is a front wheel drive car which mean in no way the car can drift.But not the Waja R3 FR. This car had already been converted to a rear wheel drive one which mean the rear wheel is turning to move the car.Thats why the waja fr can drift.Combined with a skillful driver such as Tengku Djan,the performance is breathtaking.
