    You may think drifting is just making you car is sliding sideways and driving. Most of you make videos of yourself 'drifitng' on striaght roads sliding sideways. THAT IS NOT DRIFTING!

    People don't realize the difference between powerslides (with or without a [space]?) and drifts.
    People skid a meter, "OH MY GOD, YOU DRIFT SUCK!" when people aren't actually drifting.

    By the way, what I just wrote may seem smarter inside my head.

    I sometimes do a Scandinavian flick to get the momentum i need into a turn (since i drift with a auto) & that requires me to swerve left & right on the straight bit of road before a turn.

    That's what i hear all the time when i'm just racing around at the race track. Tail end comes out so i'm powersliding, these noobs say i can't drift. And if i want to explain them i'm not drifting, they don't understand

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    I though drifting was sliding on all 4 wheels not just the back out.

    What annoys me is that some stupid movie producer took drifting and ruined the fun for the rest...

    Now you have people all over the place that say they can drift when they pull the handbrake on their fwd cars and go into an intersection...

    It also annoys me that the definition of drifting is turned to an "inside the box" thing. I mean, drifting used to only be on the mountain roads in Japan, The snowy roads in Scandinavia etc. and the D1, Big X, etc. came long after that so that definition that you posted is retarted...

    I am in no ways saying I know best and I own at drifting or something(I dont even drive yet) but i did know about it before all the US Mags started writing(which is how Drifting actually got so popular) about it and have to say that I hate how the media can take something fun and blow it up...

    Anyways, from what I understand, drifting is the practice of making controled slides where by the back end loses traction but is still under control. The straight away drifting is mostly a transitional fase from one corner to another. This has probably evolved out of the Feint drift (or scandinavian flick which i just learned ) where the drivers try to make the back end lose traction by turning in against te corner and then flicking i the other way.

    I mean, these are probably the basics that you need to know about drifting. I'm no expert as I said before, but I have watched alot(and i mean aloooot) of drifting videos, read alot of articles, etc. To bad about the media cause now im not interested anymore...

    People leave out vital pieces of information when they describe drifting. From what I understand drifting involves the rear wheels in constant motion and the front wheels steering opposite to the direction of travel.

    This is why the handbreak method is a bit iffy, because you're stopping the back wheels from spinning totally.

    a drift is a controlled loss of traction (RWD is the only way to drift)

    lets look at the facts, he has DK in his slogan/motto(under his username)

    he spelt Drifting wrong on the thread title

    he makes random sentences that link only by the word OMFG

    so draw your own conclusions, but i think this guy might actually be able to outdrift Keiichi Tsuchiya (if weeksy knows who he is, if he doesnt then hes a lost cause)

    Sorry, but what now? I drifted for months before discovering who Keiichi was. Irrelevant. Stfu before you make yourself look dumber than I'm sure you actually are.

    I really don't think drifting is all that fun. I've seen drifting first hand and also watched it on tv. Its an impressive thing to do but for me being a hardcore F1 race fan I would say marking ridiculous lap times on the track is fun. For it's more of an accomplishment type thing. Sry got a bit off topic , getting back as Nipper and trigger said drifting is getting sideways and having the tail out during a corner and having a well executed angle through the apex of the corner. That is real drifting. Not just getting your car sideways. So for all those people who want to know and the noobs who think they can can drift. Just see if you can do better than Nipper or any other veteran in TDU.
