    thanks, nk, that is the best descriptions i have seen so far....
    if what i am thinking is right, then heel toe-ing, shift-locking, and clutch kicking cannot be done as it is in real life, so i shall leave those out....but thanks again, i didn't even know some of the ones on the list....
    i think i shall launch the poll pretty soon as i think there aren't any more techniques......
    happy poling everyone...

    try going to the settings garage, and see if there is a drift setting available for your car....thats the best way i think....

    916hp is WAAAAAYY to much for drifting :crazy::crazy: .., and besides, the Option Stream Z is built for DRAG racing, not drifting..,

    .................whaaaaat??? you're addicted to drifting, yet you don't know that 916hp is way too much for drifting? :odd: that's unexpected coming from you.., :confused:

    that depends.., you don't just need engine power and torque to drift, you need a proper setup.., suspension, LSD, transmission, the usual.., oh I almost forgot, you need MAD SKILLZ, lots of 'em if you know what I mean. ;)

    More for AWD then FR. But in all honesty, most decent sports cars in the game can drift with stock power. Some just need a 20hp boost or so.

    As stated before, power is not the most essential thing to drifting(in GT4). suspension and LSD setup are as if not more important then power.

    GTactive i think that for a 350 z you need no more than 350-375 hp for drfting...i used to have one, and i think 400 is the absolute max in terms of power

    I use a controller. But get a Wheel for more control.
    GTActive, lesson one : Power isn't everything.

    yes but if you have no power enough, you cant take that corner. and you need strange skills:sly: like you all have.

    There is always weight shifting to get the weight to break the traction.

    Basically the rule of drifting is breaking the rear traction to get it sideways. You don't need the best stuff. Watching The Drift Bible may help alot.

    yea i know how to drift but to keep my bmw in control, thats the question.
    the brakes don't work good either, it takes to much.

    Try another car. Look in the Stickies on the main forum for our great Guides.

    First, you need to control a car that would be under that amount. Lower the HP, harder it is to control. I suggest you follow or at least read our stickies.FR drift Guide

    the Option Stream Z IS a drag car..,

    not really. I have a Suzuki Cappuccino EA11R, max power is around 132hp.., you know the long, round sweeper at Trial Mountain?? cute little bugger can drift the whole darn thing.., :D

    Amen to that. :tup:

    Another amen to that.

    yes you can drift a BMW M3. the stock power level is already good IMO, but if you want some extra punch then be my guest..,

    Standard Tires, preferably the N3 Tires are the best choice for drifting.


    are you controlling the throttle and countersteer when you get into the drift??

    brakes don't really help you stabilize the drift.., rather they end the drift..,

    you need a car that reaches 300km/h and can still drift? hmm, that's a tough one..,

    by good parts, what do you mean??

    I don't think you can just put on parts and drift, you have to adjust settings.., like I said, proper setup and skills are the key to drifting. Just bolting on parts and relying on power will do you no good.

    * edit - well, what you did was right, transfer 90% of the power to the rear wheels.., but how about other settings?? hmm, maybe we should discuss this matter over on the GT4 Car Tuning and Settings forum..,
