Default buss idea?



i have the crazy idea from a mythbusters show once and i want to make something similar to this i have a road car and could easily stretch it out myself i really want to make like a drift/tuner buss, does any body have any suggestions or anything, has anyone even built one like this before i think it will be fun to drift even if it is a monster but my main concern is a driveshaft what could i use to make one long eaghnough, call me crazy but i think i will have lots of fun.

the frame is way to high to convert a buss on to a drift car it would roll over before it would side slid

I have another Idea for you (The Flying Car) I have re-inveted the Helicopter.Check out prototype (Electric Rotowing) This could be adapted for a small (Electric Car) The control surfaces could be built into the unit.Using the cars power supply! I Hope I can get a few people behind this Idea.I have gotten the Bugs out by changing the rotation of the (Rotarywing) it allows me to run stock rotation on both Wingtip Motors. This would really help with pollution issues the World has with Autos! ( Fly for hrs. per gal.)

If you took a 501 or 455c.i. eng and trany ouy of a Front wheel Drive Like Toronado or Elderado (Older Models) 70s-60s you could mount that where the Rear Wheels should be.And Chop and Drop so it won't roll.I made a Trike that way ounce.Just took off the Front Bumper and put a Motorcycle Front end On It.From the Firewall back got Chopped off.I actually drove it Turn key start with auto trans.all disc brakes real cool.You'll need all the Power you can get! And with that weight in the rear it should Drift easier?
