Race track...;but first you have to learn how to drive. Also I believe some race tracks have an age limit and you must have your license. So stick to the games for now kid.

I dont know how to exactly define it but is the losing of traction of your back tires cause by extreme acceleration causing the car to lose control and you must do this while controling the car .I know it sounds stupid but thats the best way i could put it.LOL

play need for speed underground, you'll see what it is.
redlineracer's definition is about the best way to describe it. it's actually pretty cool to see if you ever get the chance in real life, or at least videos of real people and not the video game. I know mtv has a special they repeat from time to time with some asian drifters who are just incredible. they have the head of the company rojo and some other dude and they showcase street bike tricks, drifting and a couple other things. If you ever get the chance to see that on tv, that will give you a great idea as to what drifting is.

If I was a drifter, I'd be offended by your idiotic remarks. "Play NFS Underground", "Watch MTV". What the hell? Its best you two shut up about the subject at hand because obviously none of you know two shits of a rats ass what you're talking about.

Drifting is a automotive sport that originated from Japan. People in their cars, usually RWD, would drive through dark mountains at night racing each other. They found it easier to take turns by sliding sideways through them, rather then slowing down and taking the corner as you would in daily driving. This sport was eventually brought to the racing circuit. Competitors in RWD cars drive arround figure 8 like tracks, usually made of cones, to see who can do the biggest, baddes, longest, and most daring drift.

A drift is the entire process and end result of taking a car from traveling straight to going arround a corner or bend while sliding the rear end of the car. There are many forms of drifts, many styles of drifts, and many ways to drift. Full throttled drifts, e-brake drift, clutch and brake drifts.... so on and so on. I don't know enough to explain the ABC order of it.

Theres no real way to "Learn" how to drift, as it is not a sport you can really learn. Practice of car control while sliding, clutch techniqiues, brake applications, while in a safe enviorment with the proper tires is really the only way you can master the art of drift.

For starters, you can go out and but a copy of "The Drift Bible" wich can be found ad BestBuy, SamGoody, or any local high market enterprise.

BACK TO THE TOPIC THANK YOU

No there is not need for any argument. I don't care what kind of automotive "meet" you have been to. You still can't seem to grasp any knowledge rergarding cars. You were wrong, I don't need to argue with you, because you don't know much of anything. So you can walk back to that hole you like to call a home with your tail in between your legs and accept the fact that you were wrong. Or sit here and beat arround the fact that you are wrong with more insignificant information such as your whereabouts with OTHER(key word) peoples cars.

So wich on is it? Man or Mice?
