    Hello,

    Edit: Sorry missed it was a GT4 thread, I only have GT5P.

    I tried to beat all Luxembourgers at GT5P, so I also took up Drifting. Since it was tough competition in Drift Pro I did go further in it then expected up-front and enjoyed it :tup:.

    I look at statistics on: http://granturismostats.no-ip.org:8080/Default.aspx?type=3&stats=player

    I was lately trying to advance in backwheel driven cars on Eiger and Eiger reverse.
    Best score: 13633 with the Jaguar XK on Eiger. Still a lot to learn.
    Best position: 5th in a boring combination Fuji GT with a Swift (see attachment)

    I drift with the 6-Axis.
    Member since a while and now mainly trying to improve time trial skills by participating in the WRS.

    Since it snows here, I'll probably drift home tonight! :)

    ^ The best advice I can offer is to practice entirely too much, then start experimenting with settings.

    Hey guys! I've been registered at GTPlanet for a couple months now, and decided today to become an active member. Tried my hand at drifting this morning, and starting to get the hang of it. I'm a General Motor's man, so I doubt you will rarely see me drift anything but the sort.
    Have a good one-BTK

    Wasup? I'm brand new to this scene for an old-ish game, but hey, old games are the best. Got my ps2 (hopefully getting a ps3), so yeah. I started out with a Mazda Miata 1800 RS.

    Welcome to the site!

    That's not a bad car to start with. May I also suggest one of the S-Series Nissans (S13/S14/S15/Sileighty). Very controllable.



    ;)

    hey all, another new member.

    been playing gt since gt3 and got gt4 on the release date. recently got into drifting in the game. it's a a LOT harder than drifting in gt3 but with the drving force pro it's also more fun.

    Hey guys n gals.
    Paul here...

    Well I'm no noob to the GT series, Played all 4.5 lol.
    I am however, New to getting my slide on!
    Yeh I've drifted before arcade stylee in like nfs underground 1, 2 and Carbon but
    as soon as I started drifting in Shift, Jeez what a shock to the system lolz.
    I knew there was more to it than those previous games proved but still, Pretty uber skills needed eh?
    Anyways, So far I've drifted in my Rx7, 350z and Silvia. Still really weird for me and I have a ton to learn...
    I reckon at the moment I mostly enjoy drifting in the Rx7, Dunno why, Just feels like the car 'Wants' to drift you know?
    And that's in Shift, I assume GT3, GT4 & GT5p are gonna be harder again?

    All the best, Paul ;)

    *Goes in search of much needed slippery advice on slippy slidey stuff...

    Hi my name is Eduard 25 years old and i am a huge fan of GranTurismo... i started with GT2 at a friend's house and it was the reason why i bought a ps1(1998)...

    Than i became curios so i got GranTurismo1 and i found it awesome...so when GT3 came out i got a ps2 and boy oh boy i can still remember just looking at the cars for howers and just being amaised at how good they lookt like.Than GT4 came to the ps2 and i was just @_@ OMG OMG :drool: the cars look perfect and with the component cable in 1080i and my 42" FullHD LCD it's a coninues eyegasm.

    Now i have a ps3 and i use it to do evrything...EVRYTHING since i don't have a pc...GT5p is above any expectations to me...it just looks photorealistic and simply wonderfull. But and it's a big BUT i prefer GT4 handling more...GT5p is very "noob drifter" friendly...in GT4 you had to swet your way to a drift seting while on GT5p all you have to do is select Profesional and that's it.

    I draw alot and drawing cars is 50% of my drawings...i get some inspiration out of the GranTurismo series many times.

    Now about the drifting...i started that in GT2 but got a beter feeling of it in GT3 and in GT4 it's perfect...infact i beleve 70% of the cars in my garage have a seting B for drifting,

    I see evryonne types in theire drift car...i would do a 300 cars list lol i drift any car (aside FWD with some exeptions) but My favorite would be the....well i can't point out a fav i just love drifting so many of them...HKS Silvia, SVTMustang, EVO VII, Elise Motorsport, etc etc etc... xD

    @NK4E There is a thread here where you had a drift thing going on with seasons and videos and it's awesome but it's in a darck corner forgoten by evryone... 8( i sugest you bring it back and make a new seazon, that would be awesome!!!!

    If you are talking about our GTPD1/ GTPDC, it would seem that I don't have a PS2 anymore. Since it is the new gen consoles and Gran Turismo 5 is just a couple of days away. I would suspect that we will have it in the Gran Turismo 5 Drifting Sub-forum.

    If GT4 comes back to popular demand, I am sure that the moderators wouldn't mind reviving the GTPDC in GT4. I am sure that some users on this site that still drift in GT3.
