    there's probably a few "official" drifting threads already.

    (for FR, the most fun to drift with)
    1) soggy suspension,
    2) front downforce low, rear downforce lower,
    3) use the e-brake @ >60mph,
    4) use analog and half-gas through turns.

    I don't drift on purpose. It's fun when I do it on accident though. The reason I don't drift is well - because I can't.

    It's fun drifitng at like 300kph in the 'scud.

    No downforce and lowest suspension settings is how I find it easiest to drift.

    I really do not understand this rampant obsession with drifting. It's like a disease.

    The best drift idea is maybe driving a TVR Speed 12 at Autumn Ring Mini.

    Oh BTW Hard or Simulation tires at the rear and Hard tires on the front. It also is a good burnout vehicle.

    Sports tires are the best for power-drifts. Simulation tires are good for trail drifting.


    Power drifting = wow
    Train drifting = eh

    I've come to conclusion that you can't drift in GT2. :(

    I've tried and tried and tried and have only once successfully pulled off a satisfactory drift. How? I braked, feinted, and slid the car at just the right precise moment to be able to follow the racing line *exactly* while not losing any speed. This was 100% by luck. There was no "mid drift" correction of the car, because that's impossible.

    IMO, drifting is a hit and miss thing, in GT2. You absolutely can NOT control the car mid drift. You either enter it perfectly, or you don't. It all depends on timing, timing, timing.

    I was using an AE86 with sim tires, btw.

    In GT3, OTOH, drifting is completely doable and controllable, in another words, much easier.

    DON"T USE SIMULATION TIRES!!!!!!

    That's not drifting. THat's just going around a corner with the back end sliding out.

    Use Sports tires. They're more controllable, have easy break-a-way, and good grab.

    Simulation tires are like driving on ice.

    I wish there was some way to get video of some of my runs from PS into my comp. :mad:

    I can see that somebody cant drift here.
    well Drifting in GT3 is easier because its a fake game

    well Drifting in the real life is even easier then in GT3
    I started drifting about a year ago.

    Place................Work
    Speed Limit......25
    Weather...........Crappy!(rain)
    Car...................Nissan Altima 94
    Tires.................Cheap Mexican ones
    Corner..............U
    My Speed.........43Mph--70Kmh?

    That was really good ended up making O drift (couldn't exit U one) but wanted more on the better surface.

    Place................???
    Speed Limit......none (gravel)
    Weather...........night
    Car...................Toyota Camry 89
    Tires.................Cheapest Mexican tires
    Corner..............L
    My Speed.........50Mph---86kmh

    That time was even better then the last try:
    As i approached the corner grabbed E-brake 1sec Released it. My car went completely side ways. Went like that for a 50-60 Meters on the red line :sleep: car started slowing down and finally getting some grip :eek: with my tail pointing more like that / / in to the corner then | | and then it was relaxation time my wheels was pointing in the opposite of corner direction. 30 more meters of sliding and there i was happy as ########## :rolleyes: turned the volume up to my Lion King song and went to do that thing again...

    to be continued...

    OK here the continue part:
    Well In GT2 Drifting in the Rally almost the same as in the real world. So if you wana master Drifting - get your self Lancer Rally Car and go to Thaiti Maze in the Arcade. You will be Drifting in no time. By the way anyone got drifting setup for "Silvia K's 2000c"? I spend 3 hours playing with setup and the car still understirs on U turns

    So if anyone got good drifting setup for this car or for any other car please post it here.

    Proud to be by my self
