    Due to the overwhelming amount of new drifters and members coming to the drift forums(that's a good thing BTW ;) ) I've decided to give an intro thread a try. This idea was also brought up by a few of the veteran members of the drift board.:idea:

    So, new members, basically just introduce yourself, gives us a little history about yourself and let us know you're here. Then get to reading and start some intelligent conversation. :)

    As new members it's IMPERATIVE that you check out the stickies:

    LOOK HERE BEFORE POSTING NEW THREADS

    and search before posting new threads. We have no problem with your input or questions. Simply realize that there have been many people before you with the same type of questions. So please take a look around before posting a "How do I drift" styel thread. :dopey:

    Since this thread is here, all "New Member" style threads will be immediately closed by the moderation staff. Thanks.

    Ok, have at it. :cool:

    Howdy. Been registered a while but just starting to post. Got into the drifting through reading about in here and its given GT4 a whole new life. Recently started drifting in real life too in my '86 Corolla twincam. Used to just donut her but drifting takes more skill so its great fun learning something new.

    Hi, ive been posting around alot lately and i have some videos up, but i consider myself a new/beginner drifter. The forums and stickies has helped alot and the members are awesome! The "GT4 Drift Reference Guide by Boundary Layer & Swift" was great! the video and the indepth information made it extremely easy for an idiot like me to understand. :tup:

    glad to have both of you here, and glad you enjoyed the drift reference thread. As has been announced, there is a large update in the works which we hope will make it an even better resource for new drifters.

    Whats up guys....im not new to the board i just was getting tired of playing GT4 and i really dont want to stop playing it!! So I decided i would give this drifting thing a shot. Afterall it is one of my dream jobs and yes i have practiced in a real car so I know how hard it actually is and on the game its no different. Well thats about it guys oh yeah my favorite car to drift is of course my Nissan Silvia S15:sly: (on the game). In real life i use a '86 RX7.

    Good thing you made this thread! It was getting a bit annoying to see threads about new drifters popping up everywhere.

    Good to see you guys! Hope you enjoy your stay. :)

    Hi there guys, i've registered myself some time ago, but i work 12+hours a day... driving a damn Daewoo Nubira (nice korean car, but the company i work for doesn't do a good job with the mantaining)... so i dont have much time; anyway, a month or so ago i've finnaly got a PS2 (got GT4 way before :D) so i'm just begining with it; i like drifting very much, and as i can see i have the answers to all my questions right here, thanks for putting up this thread and for the welcome ;D. (sorry for the bad spelling)

    Hello, my name is mike, and I am an alcoholic drifter. Ive been drunk drifting for about a year now, and I found out about this place through a friend. Ive been posting on here for alittle while and recently shared the GTPDC6 amateur division championship with Identti. I have a kamikaze style due to my Bac being .35. If my posts sound retarded or are agressive its because Im loaded.
    :cheers:

    I honestly hope your joking. But if you're not, then I hope you get off of the sauce ASAP. If you're as drunk as you say you are, you're really hurting yourself.

    i hafta agree montieclaro and what car did you start with? i was swingin a 190 evo II Merc for awihle untill i got my HKS Silvia and that was a pain in the butt untill i got the car figured out. Ive got 5 setups for it when you get it and start slidin. btw they are in the drift settings depot. enjoy

    i started with the bp fc rx7 d1 car (thats a mouthful lol) and i used racing hard tyres for drifting:crazy: it took me agez to find the right setup, i didnt want to use the road tyres coz the rims go really really small and that just didnt look good, but when i changed car to that really old lancer rally car and used road tyres everything just made sense lol, it was hard at first because of how weak the car is but i like to think of it as a steep learning curve. The lancer really taught me to push the car further and not to be scared to pull off massive angles:dopey:

    Guess a simple hello won't suffice.

    Used to be rather avid in the GT3 forums. Been drifting GT4 since it came out... but only recently decided to come back to the forums. You can find links to my old GT3 compiliation in my sig, take a peek if you want.
