so, you never drifted it, you just hand braked it and over steered, dropped the brakes and hit the gas to counter steer with understeer, i used to do that in my excel quite a bit, it was entertaining until my brother gave me a high powered RWD Drift car.
drifting isn't just pulling a hand-brake, it's hard to explain.. grr.. um.. hmm...
ok.. well.. easiest way to explain it is, you don't drive with over-steer, drifting is a dangerous, fun, fast and expensive sport.
to drift, you need to lose rear traction and keep front traction to help you steer the way, but you can't pump the gas so hard that you just smoke it up or you wont have enough rear traction to push the car in the direction that you want.
summing it up;
front traction 92%
rear traction 8%
^^ those should be teh figures that you use when drifting, to obtain higher speeds, you obviously use more rear traction and eventually equal it out to 50/50.
