    Kill ono the traitor! lmao. For GT5 I like CH, if that is the most realistic? We discussed enough about that and that has nothing to do about this thread :p.

    Mediums are a tad more realistic. But it really depends on driving styles and real life preferences as well. For example, I really don't like to have a lot of grip, not irl either. To me, I just prefer the CH feel, and the fact that they are 'safer' to use with less experienced drivers :)

    You and DriftIdiot are probably the only ones that have real drift experience so you to should know.

    a mix between cm's and cs's would be the best. And most people here will choose CH anyway, I'm not trying to ignite a war for fanboys so don't even quote this post.

    I know CM's would be most realistic but I (as well as the majority) use CH because it really has become a standard for drifters not only on GTP, but a standard for all drifters on GT5. When using S or R tyres (not paticuarly C tyres), you are going against the norm. Another reason I use CH is that it gives you better ability when using grippier compound tyres. People who use grippier compound tyres for the sake of controlling their vheicle which is too powerful would not be able to use CH tyres because of the lesser grip. Other tyres are often too forgiving considering how the vheicle is acting

    It´s because they are not used to know how far and how long the CH can slide out. By the way, there is no huge slide lenght diference between CH and CM, but there is a great diference about the "grip break" and "grip recover" factor between each of them.

    There are others around here that have real drift experience as well. Quite a few people on my friends list on psn are real drifters. They are the ones who I prefer to drift with because they have common sense about track etiquette.

    I use CH because its the most common tire used. It makes for better drifting when everyone is on the same compound.

    If it were possible and for the sake of refreshing the boring drifting, considering it was the easiest to learn to drift on, I say as a community we ALL start drifting on CM tires just to make things new...kinda, besides on CM tires you get nice grip and slip ability where as in CH its always more slip and almost grip ability, just think it would be cool top change the game up abit and yes I am an avid CH tire drifter so don't come for me ok

    All my drift tunes use CH so that's what I voted for. I am willing to accept ISLYDWAYZI's challenge though.

    Ignore my vote. I thought it is about tyres in general, but in drifting I'm using comfort hards.

    Yeah, i feel the same way... CM with higher cambers, maybe...
    Even stills its a "angle sacrifice" on low power cars. I just cant do a decent line on Tsukuba using a Silvia Q´s with 255 hp.

    Im not looking for faster grip breaking / recover. What maybe i would like better is fewer lateral slip (glide).
    I dont know... im just brainstorming.

    exactly what i mean, i dont know many cars in real life that get massive amounts of angle ALL THE TIME. in normal power tuned cars it makes sense that u wouldnt due to not having the power to push it rather then ALL cars able to do what ALL cars in real life wouldnt.. just my 2 cents

    Maybe meet half way.

    A "pro level" transition to CM or something, where lower spec cars are separated from higher spec cars, with lower getting hards and higher getting mediums, yes its harder slightly but why are you running a 600bhp monster if you have no skill ;)

    CM just don't do it for me. I know people recon there the most realistic. I have tried cm and to be honest I don't think there more realistic at all. Which is why I will always drift CH.:)

    I use to feel like then when I first tried it but once you use CM on a very poweful car (600+ hp) you can start to apreciate the extra grip. Cars act more tame and the fact you have loads of power means the concern of the snappyness of grip gain and loss is lessened

    Hold on, hold on...

    Before point the CM as the future of the GT5 drifting, its necessary more experiments with cars that are able to tandem now but uncertainly with bit more grip. In a CH scenario, a 400hp car sometimes can keep in the same pace with a 650hp car. But if both gets some extra grip, will the gap remains the same?

    And ok, 255hp is a very amateur ish level for drifting, but 400hp can be already considerated pro. Or kinda...

    I agree with that, but...
    Then again 600 is in a different league to 400, it would make powerful cars worthwhile. Where as now any old banger can drift along side your crazy power drift war machine :p .

    This also opens the door to "Tiers", so, a drift comp could have a 200 - 300, 300 - 400 and 400 - 500bhp drifting tier system. Which in itself sounds interesting.

    Edit: does 400bhp and 600bhp in tandem work on CM's ? Because Lazy Liquid makes a fair point.

    :)

    It can be relevant. It's a good place to have a discussion and actually try it out.
