DRIFT A CAR




STEPS :


Drifting with Rear Wheel Drive Manual:




  1. Find a car with both rear-wheel-drive and a manual transmission. Good choices would be: 240sx, 180sx, Skyline, RX-7,toyota supra, Cefiro, AE86 Corolla, Laurel, Silvia S14, 350z, Viper, Mustang, etc. Basically any FR layout sports car with as close to a 50/50 ratio as possible, and enough power to keep the tires spinning is ideal. and don't drift with a ford you will crash!




  2. Head to an open area (i.e. an empty parking lot) safely free of pedestrians and motorists and police!


Hand brake technique:
  1. Accelerate and shift to second gear, which allows the widest variance of speed and is best for harnessing the engine's torque without overly stressing the mechanicals.
  2. Push in the clutch.
  3. Flick the steering wheel to the outside of the turn and steer strongly inside toward the turn.
  4. Simultaneously pull the hand brake.
  5. Immediately step on the gas, let out the clutch, and steer the car in the direction of the slide, using throttle to control the angle of the drift. You're drifting!

Clutch Kick technique:


  1. Accelerate and shift to second gear, which allows the widest variance of speed and is best for harnessing the engine's torque without overly stressing the mechanicals.
  2. Push in the clutch, and rev the engine up.
  3. Flick the steering wheel to the outside of the turn and steer strongly inside toward the turn.
  4. Simultaneously drop the clutch.
  5. Steer the car in the direction of the slide, using throttle to control the angle of the drift. You're drifting!

Drifting with Rear Wheel Drive Auto



  1. Find a large, open area.

  2. Accelerate to a speed of 20-30(depending on lot size and room)

  3. Turn the wheel hard and floor it. You should feel the rear end slide around if this is done correctly. Repeat until comfortable with sliding.

  4. Set up a cone in the middle of the lot. Drive up on the cone and turn around the cone. when you begin your turn accelerate hard to get the rear end loose.

  5. Counter steer to control where your car will go after turn.(opposite lock)

  6. Increase speed until comfortable

  7. Note that if your vehicle of choice doesn't have enough power, use the hand brake to initiate the drift, then power over.

Heal Toe technique


  1. Floor it and slow down about 4 meters in front of the corner turn tap the brake and hold brake 3 seconds acellerate voilently and blast off some NOS (if you have any that is)


Drifting with Front Wheel Drive


  1. Floor it and dont stall near the turn. Turn.. tap for 2 secconds brake acellerate violently and finish the drift with a brake and acellerate to victory!


TIPS


  • No two cars react identically; try to "feel" yours to familiarize yourself with its reactions.


  • All wheel drive vehicles can be drifted, but it requires a specific, rather more difficult technique. Keep in mind that there are no rules that can be applied to AWDs because every car is different and more importantly, every AWD system is different. Read about your car, read real articles on it and go talk to people. If they tell you that you must drive rear wheel drive, find someone else.


  • In a rear wheel drive vehicle, you don't need to pull the brake as you improve, but it is often necessary when first learning.


  • Starting out in the rain will save tires, and allow you to practice at slower speeds.


  • If you are interested in drifting, check out the Drift Bible, which outlines some of the more complex techniques involved in drifting a car.


WARNING

  • Never drift on the road. It is illegal. It might seem fun, but it's really not worth the risk.


  • Don't go faster than you can handle. Recovering from a spin takes skill and experience.


  • Because severe or uneven wear is a driving hazard, be sure enough tread remains on the tires when finished drifting.


  • Be extra careful when drifting in an SUV or pickup. They're much more likely to roll over.
