    dunno if its been done but i was playing around with my favourite drift pig ( Mines R34) in arcade mode and found that if i just slightly slide the rears through the dirt on the outside of a corner on entry to the corner it whips the car round for a more angle if i need it.

    im calling it 'dirt whip' :sly::tup::dunce:

    btw settings: Power: +20
    weight: -10
    driver aids off
    transmission: Manual
    tyres: sports hard

    It's probably been done, but the person didn't care at all.

    I will try to use this.

    Yep, been done, I believe most people just call it a dirt drop and only let one tire drop of the edge.

    Yes, it is called a "dirt drop". It is used by most drifters from time to time.

    that "technique" you can use on every understeery car


    also try putting the outside wheel on the grass and brake, it's very fun

    i know of people using a technique very much the same as this only they do it to give the rear wheels a bit of extra wheelspin and its called 'dirt turbo' thats pretty much the only difference between the two

    yeah i use that on the 'ring when i do laps in a FWD car, it helps preserve momentum through faster corners, especially the downhill section at the top right hand corner of the track.

    Dirt drop

    This is done by dropping the rear tires off the sealed road onto dirt, or whatever low-grip surface borders the road, to maintain or gain drift angle. Also colloquially called "Dirt Turbo"
