    This one is giving me hell, spent about a half-hour with my favorite drift car (ShaunM80's Ferrari) and still no gold. I think I need a slower car.

    @shaunm80's F40 will gold this, so will his GT-R Black Edition. :tup:

    I had a couple of attempts with the GT-R, with added nitrous & I was close to gold without driving particularly well. Then I saw your post & gave the F40 a try & just scraped a gold with 4,543 points on the 3rd restart.

    I did it with this.



    Event: Non-Race Car Drift Trial (10/08/2016)

    Car: Shelby Cobra 427 '66

    Score: 5,739

    World Rank: 300th :eek: :D


    You just got to drift right from the start and keep it going to get a good score. The last 2 curves are important because you can slide off to the right just before the finish, I had about 5,200 and slid off at the end and got a Big Fat "0"

    I was like :censored: :censored: :banghead:

    Do you have a tune for it and can you share it? I'd like to try it.

    I don't think you can tune that car but it drifts in stock form & scores higher than anything else.

    not exact the same,previously you needed only 4000 to reach gold,now you need 4.500 to grab the prizes.
    for bronze you need now 2000,back then it was 1.500.

    Hi,

    I've never done a drift event before, so is there a how-to for beginners? i.e. which car, tires, settings? Is this one "easy" for beginners or should I try something different first?

    thx,
    D.

    I can't drift on this game worth crap, so I use only 3 cars to get through all the drifting events. They're super easy to drift, and control, thanks to ShaunM80 tunes. One is the Ferrari 599, another is the racing FRS, and the last one is an AWD car (can't remember what it is at the moment).

    https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/exeter-gt-tuning-updated-with-new-seasonal-setups.300860/

    Go to the drift tunes section.

    This is the 599 tune you want for this event.

    Hi,

    thanks. I tried the 599, this is ridiculous. The car spins out on the straight while accelerating to the first corner. Did a few tries, best so far 1987 points :boggled:

    D.

    Hi,

    2048 points, bronze. Over and out. As a punishment I painted the 599 with the gained military-003-W chip :D

    I'll either try my WRX or my S13 tune for this. Is nitro allowed?

    A bit hard for stock car because of the long curve.

    I don't do drifts very often, but since I like seeing the gold cups lined up when I look in the seasonals page....

    Did it with a 1970 Chevelle SS! Max HP, all trans, suspension, brake and body mods, Comfort mediums and zero rear toe.

    Tried with different cars, then I tried with the Tank Car, got 5948pts.

    I'm still wondering how they get 9000+ at this, especially with the Tank Car :confused:

    I've sunk hours in to this one and still can't get it, including using the tank car and the Ferrari 599 tune further up the page.

    Edit: Finally crushed it with the Tank Car.

    I used my Shelby GT500 tune and got 6k but went off track at the last turn. fml. It seems that either I don't slide enough to hit the second corner at the apex or I slide off track.

    A few runs in my drift-tunes Acura NSX and I'm about 300 points off gold. Will have to keep at it on this one for a bit. This is the trickiest set of corners in this track for drifting!

    Only doing this one for the prize car...

    Everyone uses a damn tank car.
    We're all drifting wildly different cars that do not behave like that.

    Many attempts now and still no gold! I've managed 4,2XX in my M5 drifter, but not surpassed that gold score yet! I've found entering the first drift at 150kph and giving a little stab on the handbrake starts the drift off perfectly, getting the right angle and drift line. But it's the chicane at the end of the section that catches me every time. I had one run where I was just about to crack 4,500 and I slid off the track to the right of the end markers. Rage ensued.

    Any hints/tips how to master the final chicane?

    Start with a wheel in the grass, it may be easier than the handbrake, but not a 150, maybe 135-140. For the last chicane, go slower than you normally do and use the handbrake, that could help a bit.

    I had a few more attempts last night in my M5, and then decided it was too heavy to keep the momentum up while keeping a controlled drift for the final hairpin. Jumped into my Mazda RX-7 GTX and after few attempts getting to know it's limits I finally cracked through with a narrow 4,551 run! Gold, and done!!

    Used the same approach: enter the first corner at 150 km/h, little jab on the handbrake, countersteering while feathering the throttle and keeping an eye on the rumble strips. Little bit of handbrake through the chicane to steady the car and lose a little more speed and BAM! Thanks for your advice @drag_izayoi !
