Drifting is just too hard to learn.
I like to watch it but.
But then I havent seen anyone drift on the roads, just
on tv =/

That's a good thing. No one should be drifting on roads in the first place.

umm... yeah ofcourse ^^;; I probably just missed those parts xD.


Oh yeah guys you know in Tokyo Drift, if you can remember;
the part where Han was showing the main guy(4got his name)
what he uses drifting for and he went pretty fast in a circle around
the chiq's car; as a method to pick them up.
How do they do that; it a very impressive stunt by the professionals.

That movie did have some very nice drifting scenes in it, although the chase scene was really stupid. Was it really necessary to drift in and out of the cars on the road as if they were pylons? pinch2.gif

Anyway, the drifting in a circle is easier than doing it around a corner I think. All you have to do is maintain the steering wheel and throttle at the right position after initiating a slide.

One should only drive normally on roads. you want to have fun, goto a track and go crazy.

anyway. I notice there are a lot of procedures to drifting but the basic principle is not really explained here.

First of all, weight shifts. If you don't put the car's weight to the front. it is not going to turn nor drift/slide. This is true even for a FR car. If you are wondering why you're understeering on some of the things that you've been trying to do. This is why.

Second is breaking of traction on the rear. Once you've move the weights to the front, you can do various things to break the traction on the rear. eg. E-brake, down-shift, clutch kick, having rear tires with very little traction etcs. For me, I think sliding around is torturing the tires, so I don't really do it often nor do I do it well.

Hope this helps

Here in Finland I often see people drifting in the streets. At least in a roundabouts and parking lots. But it is a bad thing. Don't do it.
