    Best of luck NK4E! I think the drift forums will be an even bigger nightmare to keep organized this time around. Glad to see someone trying to take charge and install a bit of order. :tup:

    To the rest of you: Welcome. Read the stickies and use the search to see if your question has been answered elsewhere before creating a new thread.

    My sentiments exactly. I really appreciate the audience and community here at GTPlanet, everything seems so much..... calmer. Regardless, many of us drifters, including myself, would benefit greatly from a "Drifting Team" forum. I private messaged a couple super-moderators last night suggesting the idea, but I didnt get a response. Having a place to set up base, organize everything, talk about news, sessions, events, recruiting, etc. would greatly reduce clutter in the main "Drifting Forum." I hope to see a subsection added soon as I expect many teams creating "looking for members" and what-not in the coming weeks. Thanks for reading! :)

    Hello all... very surprised my super old account still works...
    used to drift alot in GT3 (skipped GT4 cause halfway into the game, my save file got corrupted #@$#$)

    So trying to learn again how to go sideways in GT5 :)
    Was having some trouble initially but after playing around in a Cappuccino, realized it wasn't as hard as i thought. Still need alot alot of practice.

    So far all i can do are lift-off overs, power-overs and feints. Trying to do up some chains but is hard. Practicing on R246, best score i got was 8000+. Hopefully its not too bad for a start.

    Here's my current drift weapon. (I hate it that i cannot have multiple setup saves for a single car - or is it just me?)

    Hello everyone. I have really taken a liking to drifting in GT5. i never was very good at it in GT4 or GT5P, but i practice daily for at least a half hour and have really improved. hope to see you all on drift nights sometime soon. ^_^

    I drifted a bit in GT4 and have been playing GT since GT3 ... spent a bit of time online tonight practicing with other people. Super fun drifting Tsukuba online with 8+ people!

    Right now I am drifting with a 250hp '09 FT-86. It's mainly stock right now, just a few motor mods and paint. Any suggestions or setups? I can handle it pretty well but high speed drifts are iffy. I'm no pro but I can hold a slide ... any tips?

    Not entirely new to drifting on GT or AFK, Used to do X-link a bit. Is it just me or is this missing wheel inch increments and Offset adjustments?
    I'm getting back into the Groove of the whole online drifting thing with my Full Built S15, although I'm kinda struggling with the fine tuning right now, but it's getting there.
    I'll be sure to see many of you out there sooner or later.

    I think if there is a demand that new teams are popping and mixing in with general content. Then Jordan will create a sub-forum.

    Been playing GT since the first one, been virtual drifting since GT3. New to GTPLANET though. I've been real life drifting since 2001, but stopped drifting because our track closed in 2006 :grumpy: Recently tried out rallyx on our temp track, (track is currently offroad only) its the closest I can get to "real" drifting for now. Before GT5, I wasted my money on korean drinky bar girls, lol. I like to use whatever cars to drift in GT5 and currently I'm a dual shock 3 controller drifter. I had a g25 back when prologue came out, but I sucked real bad at it. I might buy a g27 soon to try it out again.

    one of my old drift videos from 2005, open diff and stock ka24de (installed a kaaz LSD not to long after)


    me driving at a rallyx two weeks ago

    Hi, long time lurker on GTPlanet. Not new to GT or drifting (GT3 was my favourite for drifting) I am however new to drifting with a wheel and I have to say it's quite difficult at first. But I've been practising and it's getting there.

    Mostly drifting the S13 ~200hp.

    Some people already know who I am, but hi everyone.

    HUGE drifting geek. Been competing since '05 and been pro ever since. I've driven in most big series in Europe and a D1GP exhibition match, and the funny thing is I learnt to drift on GT4 and then Enthusia.

    Absolutely LOVE the drifting in GT5, it's UNBELIEVABLY realistic and have spent a good couple of hours a day doing it since the game came out.

    Anyway, can't capture anything off the PS, so here's a vid of me in real life from bac in 2006 :)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNywnwj5MCQ

    And here's a couple in the same car (rebuilt) from '08 :)

    I tend to only use my TwinTurboCH account on PSN, so add me and come skid :)

    I picked up GT5 on release day. I've been a hardcore GT fan since the first game. Right now my fav car to drift in is the TVR Speed 6. I look forward to spending some time online with you people. :-)

    Give it some time. As teams start cropping up, and the need arises, a new sub-forum will follow.

    w00t GT5!! crazynutt here. Not that new to the GT series. Played GT4 for a bit, never drifted on it though. I've been on GT5 since day 1 and loving it. Never had a chance to drift in real life but I love watching it and doing it in a game. Did some drifting on GRiD but it's nothing like GT5. I've had the pleasure of being at the Formula D event in Atlanta, Ga (really in Braselton,Ga.) since their first event there. Looking to get with some good drifters here. I'm not the best but I have got better this past week. I did lurk here for a couple of days and learned a lot of stuff just reading. Site is setup good and looks great.

    Till next time :)
