    i think practice is the way to learn to drift. i had just started to try to drifting, at first i kepted locking up and spinning off but then i noticed it was the way i was catching the rear, i let the drift slide naturally and then slowly controlling it.

    I must admit I use a completely different setup to all you guys, I use R5's at the front and R4's at the rear and tune up to around 320bhp (Silvia s14). Very stiff suspension and camber all round. Just then go and practise if you find you have to much understeer then soften the front/stiffen rear and vice versa. Oh and the D1 drifters use very very grippy tyres not normal road tyres :tup:

    For me the best car to drift is Mazda MX5 try in time trial, disable driving aids and start slow to win confidance... speed up each lap and left off gas before turns, you must have attencion when car is stopping slide from rear to stop turn the wrong side, sometime only may stop steering to control car!

    The D1 drifters also have around 500hp on average... They use grippier tires, so to speak, not because of their "grippiness", but because of the more predictable traction changes...

    Ok, go to Ghymnaka or whatever that big open area track is in the "Driving Park" section. Just drive your car, and get a feel for how it reacts to the things you do. Frist start with clockwise to get your right turns down, and then vice versa. Just get a feel for you car to see what happens when you try to feint, snap, the g-spot countersteer (hahaha), brake while sliding, etc. At a big open track, you dont have to worry about havign to follow the path of a corner when you aren't ready yet, so it takes that much stress off of you. That's how I taught my bro, who's like 12, to drift the s14: just told him to relax and see how the car reacts to what you do. Another thing you need is patience. I learned how to drift the AE86 (with like 243 HP) over like the course of 6 months with lots and lots of frustration, it's not exacltly best car to learn in, but, hey, I got it to sliiide, and I've got a video out here somehwere... So yeah, calm down, dont get impatient and just, you know, have fun. So yeah, good luck with that.

    I recommend that you read the AUP also. The special Drift Cars ( Blitz ER34 Skyline, HKS Genki Silvia, and Falken RX7( I believe)) isn't always a good way. Stock cars with N2 or N3 tires would be a way to go but drifting is to make your own style.

    Seeing as how his post is three years old, and he never got past new member, and last login April 6 of 2006... I would say that the advice would be kind of pointless. But it's never a bad thing to remind members of the AUP.

    It was probably a force of habit (^-^)"
