Can anyone with a DFGT come on for 5 mins in a game with me and help me out?I just got it today, and i'm really struggling.
Honestly, your not going to do good in one day, If you do, your amazing. It's going to take a while before your able to drift how you'd like too. Just keep plugging away at it, and don't worry about spinning or crashing, its all a part of the learning curve.
Try a camaro on laguna seca on racing softs, doing a braking drift by slaming the brakes enabling ABS to kick in and slip you're car. Once you master that switch to Comfort hards and master the same technique. You will need to remember that the camaro has a lot of power so use an aggressive style.
Hope that helped so here are instructions
Track: laguna Seca
Car: chevy camaro 2010.
Technique: Braking drift>>>>>>> To initiate a braking drift set ABS to 1 and around 200 feet before a corner slam the brake and turn the wheel the direction of the corner, Once you feel the car loose control countersteer to a point that feels comfortable and put the accelerator at about 75% pressure. Upon exiting corner release gas and strighten wheel, Countersteer if required.
So like this
Step 1> Slam breaks and turn wheel into corner
Step 2> Countersteer once you loose traction
Step 3> Put accelerator at around 75% pressure
Step 4> Exit corner by releasing gas and strightening wheel.
Step 5> Succes!
There are other techniques like the power over, E-brake and the "Weight shift" and like most GT5 drifters, using comfort hards makes it so simply turning at high rev will spin you.
I won't suggest starting to drift on Racing Softs because they have the most grip in the game. I suggest starting with a more realistic Comfort Medium or Soft choice of tyres then slowly shift to Comfort Hard tyres.
