Drifting ur car ....who doesnt want to?

Posted 01 October 2005 - 08:22 AM

Drifting..the most impressive phenomenon.

seeing those rubbers smoke, screech and swinging the tail of a car..
what more could be tha fascinating on ground Zero? B)

well now that thing has got me too. and since im in India , u can forget training from a driving school ( what;s drifting ? they say)

Till now i drift on my honda city (sports tuned to a slight extent) on a deserted ground on the outskirts.

and i suck at whatever i try to do at drifting. :sleepy:
anyone know some fundamental laws of drifting pass em here.
(tried reading autocar mags)

Drifting has been around for years. Most popular in Japan. However, only since Need For Speed Underground has it become popular around the world as much as it has.

My bro and I have been playing "drift" since 1998 when it was featured in Gran Turismo as a racing style option.

Wrecking tires is a by-product. Drifting is fun and it does take some skill to pull it off effectively. Before I fucked up my car taking it up a mountain road I'd go into these parking lots and showoff a bit drifting around, its mostly just control of figuring out how far something is going to and just knowing your car well.

I like to be in control of my car, I don't think drifting into a tree will help my life become more fulfilled. Just my 10 cents.

I'm glad we don't have emission tests here. I almost bought a 4 - to - 1 header, but then realized if I ever moved, I'd have wasted a helluvalota money, cause that shure as hell won't pass carb inspection. It's funny, because I've lived here my entire life, I never knew that there was a such thing as emmisions tests, until a few months ago, I heard of them, odd.

We used to have them here in MN, but they did away with 'em in the mid 90's
