Sorry guys... newb question!

I was wondering for a GC, if you put the fuse in the FWD slot... does it make the suby better for drifting?

Well...
Driveshaft's still connected so it'll still be painful to your Center diff to rip the e-brake. And without the e-brake nor power to the rear wheels it'll be really hard to brake the car out.
Plus, if you're trying to really drift an Impreza, you have the wrong car.

Not true at all...theres plenty of FF drift cars, some are good enough to compete with the RWD gods.

Dont ever pull your fuse to drift...buy a honda if u want to FF drift...

A FWD "Drift" is more like a powerslide than anything else. As long as the front tires have grip and the rears are out you can keep it up for quite a while on the right surface. Almost impossible to do without an ebrake, unless you put sticky tires on the front and donuts on the rear, but that's not cool.
<- Old Impreza was FWD only.

in 2nd take a turn that gives you room and start in the turn at high rpm and left off and start the turn and then get back on..... track use only. This is a let off drift as it transfers your weight to your front and makes your ass take the turn faster than your front. Find a local autox and thats your cheapest and safest route.

Manual conversion + welded center diff = RWD scooby = Drifting fun

Some guy did it a while back, videos are on youtube.

Step one in your drifting training would be to buy a manual car. Auto's dont drift so well as they like to shift mid-corner and that leads to bad things. Subarus do slide really really well, but not in auto form, and usually on dirt or snow. I like snow. Snow is good...

The funny part is that you say you have a 5spd impreza... in which the FWD fuse doesn't do anything... at all...

Go find some dirt and practice sliding. Your car doesn't have a rear LSD, so it'll be good practice to learn in your open diff. When you upgrade eventually you'll be all "woah" and then you'll be t3h dorifto superstar!

Or go buy a 240/FC3S/FD/Miata/Bimmer/RWD car
