This achievement is far easier than it seems. The key is to get the weight as close down to 2500kg without going below and adding gobs of power. To kill two birds with one stone, I suggest using the 2017 Ford Raptor. I made what I think is the perfect tune for it. The name of the tune is "Throwing Weight" and the description says "Throw Your Weight Achievement." You can also search for it using my gamertag. I highly suggest doing the Silver Sands Drift Zone because it is by far the easiest one. I managed 40,000 score on my first try and I'm sure you can get far more.
I hope I helped :)

EDIT: NE0182 made an awesome video and asked me to share it. It's super helpful and details everything. He has a a lot of other good achievement video guides on his channel, so you should definitely check him out. Here is a link to his profile: NE0182

I'm the worst at drifting. I think this solution may help players like me, who are of a similar skill. First step, acquire the 1986 LAMBORGHINI LM 002. Step two, customize it to an S2, then go back and lower the weight reduction to the default Stock one, which will bring it down to an S1. This will give you the power you want with the weight you need.

I also made a Bucket List Challenge for this achievement with the same vehicle. So, no worries if you don't have the 1986 LAMBORGHINI LM 002. Just add me to your friends list (sin 1) so you'll have access to the Bucket List Challenges I've created. Then, go to the Silver Sands Shipwrecks areas Bucket List Blueprint Challenge and play the one I created.

It doesn't matter which way you approach to play the drift zone. Just be sure to have the ABS OFF (not mandatory), as well as turning off (most importantly) the Traction Control and the Stability Control.

I did create a tune for this. You don't need it, but it's there for players who don't want to go item by item in the Custom Upgrade area.

I hope this solution has been helpful to players who were struggling to get this achievement.
