2 words- Drift Bible

My view on drifting:
Drifting is a fun way to mess around. I like it best when you combine it with grip driving on a normal race track or touge as it looks dynamic and neat.

But when you watch it on TV where the track is specifically designed for it (with just cones as a corner) and that they drift all the time(even on the straights) I find it gets a bit boring after a while.

I have really tried "true" drifting mainly becuase I haven't really driven a rwd but I have messed around with the handbrake on my mum's 323 and my integra in the wet.

Well then I suggest you get a RWD car FAST! Theyre fun.

Yes, I know what drifting is, and yes, I know how to do it. But, I dont nessecarily love it. I find it entertaining to watch once in a while, but if I watch it to much it gets really boring.

I've been drifting for years... country boy... gravel/snowy/wet roads... everybody drives a pickup... good times, we used to hang it out on every corner, it's not rocket science.

I've never drifted, (intentionally anyway) but I have a general idea how to do it. It would be fun, and I would do it if not for the accelerated tire wear.

drifting isn't made for accelerated tire wear, drifting can be done with 1 set of tires, but the D1GP is all about show class, they're only good in teh conditions of showing off, not actually drifting at a real, quick class competition.

Keiichi Tsuchiya is probably the only person in the world who can get a near stock car slideways with basically stock tire's and keep it that way next to a HKS D1GP S15 JDM Silvia.

we've talked about you doin' that before steve, that's not drifting, drifting is entering teh corner sideways and holding that sideways feel throughout the corner with throttle control a the right amount of counter steer and weight transfer... you just punched it once and got a bit sideways half way through the corner.

that's not drifting, as i said to steven, drifting is entering the corner sideways, what you're doing is power-over/power sliding, you're getting sideways halfway through the corner and then holding it as a tail-whip after the exit of the corner.

correct lads?

if ya'll like, i can try and get a video of me drifting at Mallala or Viriginia Raceway?

With smoke bellowing out of the tyres I know that the tyres aren't gonna last long.

It's still a form of drifting as long as your rear tyres are losing grip.

That's 1 technique which is explained in the drift bible. Power sliding is a basic form of drift. You don't have to be sideways before a corner to be drifting. Just because it's not dynamic doesn't mean it's not drifting.

One of my favorite drifting clips:
