    I'm not a great driver but I think it is slow into corners and then power all the way throgh the corner in hardcore mode or your will under-steer.

    You have probabbly heard this: "Slow in, Fast out". Well, try it. It works every time. It works for me too. The best is to use a high class car, which has a lot of ponys under the hood. Then when entering a turn hit the gas and keep the car stable and watch to not spin out. Then just keep flooring it until you exit. I hope I helped. Peace! :)

    slow in fast out????

    no no no, do that and get maybe a 15 degree angle

    you go into the corner as fast as possible, then either feint or handbrake, whichever is more comfortable

    once in the slide to keep it going requires a LOT of steering and throttle input, once you master that move on to the tricky stuff

    to extend your drift either give it full throttle in balance with steering or handbrake, or you can use the footbrakes in some situations

    when going from a left to a right in one drift you just steer into the drift massively, then let it go the other way and catch it for the next corner, a transition, if you will

    hope this helps, check my vids for corner speeds and such, or hit me up on LIVE and ill show you in person ;)

    good luck

    I posted this at the atari US boards a while ago but it fits here also:

    Cars that are easy to drift:
    Saleen S7TT
    RUF Rturbo
    RUF Rt12
    McLaren F1 GTR (LM is easy to get sideways but hard as hell to control)
    Chevrolet Corvette Z06

    Medium difficulty:
    Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR
    Ferrari F40
    Ferrari F430/Spider (get it right and glides like a dream but very easy to lose the power and overrev)
    Mercedes-Benz CLK-DTM AMG
    Noble M400
    Saleen Coupe

    That's all I have tried upto now, I try and stay away from the RUF's and Saleens as they're easy (apart from the RGT), I have found the standard F1 at Stage 3 to be somewhat of a drifter but damn is it hard to keep under control and also in the power, you have to flick between 2nd and 3rd gears often.

    Well enjoy ! :D

    4th gear and low revs does the job for me in keeping it at a nice angle, 3rd gear is too low for some corners I find.

    That's where I go ^
    I think I've mastered the RUF RT12 on that track, except for the BIG sweeper at the end.

    seriously, practising on the track will mess you up when you hit the mountains

    practise on the mountains is my suggestion, once you can get through them quite well then you can possibly drift anywhere ;)

    Tantalus is apparently the hardest mountain range, but i fin the 22 miles mountain stretch at the top of the map to be more challenging
