not as long as you CRASH into the curb
Well, its basically bashing, there is no things that wear out, other then the tires.

Well drifting also hurts other parts of your car... Electrics and nitros will overheat because you will be running high rpms and low speeds. Your tranny will also spin and you may strip things.....

I would just run body less while drifting to make sure you keeping your engine cooler, especally with nitro, your not going to want to de tune your engine to keep it cooler, because your going to need thorottle reponse to pull yourslef in diffrent directions
