    Yep, lots of good/challenging corners to drift on those courses. The lower speed stuff is much harder than high speed drifting, IMO.

    Glad you like them. Here are some more Nissan pics. I posted these in the drift photos thread, so you may have seen them. This place is so dead, though, I doubt anyone will care.

    S13 Silvia and 240:

    Wow! I see you're just like me, I like to have "Tire Smoke" in every picture I take.

    Tire smoke is just what happens when you slide ^_^

    Actually, some of the earlier ones have none, but it seems almost unavoidable with that Silvia on El Capitan. Also, I was experimenting with the transparency of the "smoke" in gt4 by taking pictures of it in different light conditions.

    El Capitan has lots of bright, direct sunlight as well as very dark shadowy areas, so it was a good place to see how that smoke behaves in different light and see in which conditions it appears more realistic.
    Oh, and if you've ever been to a real drifting competition, the smoke puts this video game stuff to shame. You walk out with black tire dust on your clothes. Respirators are seriously a good idea.

    [SARCASM]Really? I didn't know that.[/SARCASM] Not every turn you have smoke, Some turns just don't have smoke.

    You're right, I didn't understand what you were saying at first.

    Some more Silvias. The s14 is the N/A version, so it's at around 280hp, whereas all the previous Nissans I posted were 400+

    The lower power meant I had to use n2 tires, as opposed to using anything from an s1 to an r1 on the higher powered cars. I have to say that a car with this power on these tires is much more forgiving. Also the s14 is really stable.

    The s15 is even more stable, to the point that it's hard to drift. 480 something horsepower and It's still hard to get sideways. It just wants to go where you point it and stick to the ground. This car is a perfect grip racer--it's too good for drifting ^_^

    Thanks, Snowboard Kid. The photos just get a quick curves layer in PS, then upload to Flickr.

    This thread made me decide to work my way through a bunch of Nissans. Buy, build, dial-in learn to drive. It's nice feeling the differences between models and years.

    Some old school Skyline GT-S:

    Yeah, that thing's a blast to drive. It's almost like a prehistoric S-chassis. 4-cyl turbo skyrine ftw!

    Front two wheels went in the grass, but I managed to keep the rears on-course and save it. I'd like to do a video, but have no way to get it to my computer.

    Those are pretty good too. I just bought a NISMO Skyline today, I've already tuned it to drift.

    Nice, let's see some pics! The L6 Skylines seem to be a little more difficult to drift than the S-chassis cars, IMO. I think they're just more stable.

    How do you set your cars up for drift? I get a lot of power, full lightening, race or original suspension, all maxed-out drivetrain parts and fully adjustable diff. From there it's usually pretty easy to dial it in to go sideways.
