    Hey guys, I just started drifting again, currently working on my first setup car. I played last night in a few rooms, I was in a Black Benz 190 2.5e Evo.

    See you guys out there.

    Hi Everyone,

    I am new to drifting and I am hoping to spend some time learning when not doing photo shoots, Wangan events, time attacks. I tried drifting in Gran Turismo 3 and 4 using the controller. But I didn't understand how to in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue when I purchased a G27. Now that Gran Turismo 5 is finally out, I would like to try it out and hopefully to do well.

    I've been drifting since 4 and used to lurk and get my setups here :p

    Now I'm actively drifting on the daily in GT5, my DFGT wheel comes next week so I'm on a DS3 right now, here are some pics I've snapped drifting.

    Hey guyz!

    I am quite new to the GT series, GT5 being my first game from it, and rather new on these forums, although I've been lurking ish since this summer. I first took up an interest in drifting probably when I started watching Initial D a few years ago, but haven't done anything seriuz with it.

    Now I find GT5 to be the perfect place to begin with learning how to drift virtually, which is VERY VERY hard for me, lol. I can barely get the car to slide.

    If anyone can give me tips on what the best ways to drift are (and I don't want any noobish E-brake stuff that has no respect) and the best ways to recover more specifically that would be much appreciated!

    I very much look forward to being a part of this scene :D.

    Hi everyone,

    So im new to drifting on GT5, at the moment im beginning to get to grips with it currently using my ae86. The main track i can do relatively well on is the High speed ring im fairly confident on 5 out 6 of the corners. Trying to do other tracks aswell but finding it pritty hard.
    My ae86 is currently running custom suspension and comfort hards with nothing else.
    Watching some of the videos you guys put is really inspiring me to practice loads. I wanna take it to the next step which seems to be setting my car up, so would love to join up with some of you lot and gain a better understanding. Im on GT5 most days in free run practicing so if any wants to add me up (Dannyc11) and share your wisdom i would be appreciate it.

    ill be on from 9:30pm (uk time) tonight if any wants to join me and a couple of mates.

    Peace Danny

    Hey guys, I've been a long time lurker and GT enthusiast since the days of the original GT! I only started drifting in GT4 and was decent with the controller. I just bought the DFGT for GT5 and I found out I really know nothing about drifting afterall :p. Looking forward to some fun times around here.

    Hey guys, I'm kinda new to drifting in GT, but have done a bit in real life, was a machine on forza. lol If anyone's keen to drift lemme know. I'm pretty horrid at the moment until I find somewhere to mount my G25 and I'll be all set.

    if anyone could give me a few pointers on drifting in GT, I would be very grateful. cheers.

    by the way, I'm using the FC RX-7 at the moment.

    Hi I'm new to GTP but its seems like a fun place. I drift in real life, in a team called Silhouette. www.teamsilhouette.com is our web site. I drift on Forza all the time but right now it's all about GT5.

Currently Tuning my S2k for a couple more degrees , But I do drift online in a Purple FD Rx-7. If any of you guys need help/suggestions Let me know.

    I have been at the official GT website forums but there was not much regarding GT5 drifting and I just found this drifting forum today and signed up... Glad to find a place where the talk is all about drifting...

    Some of you may have seen me in the drifting rooms at night - maybe not. I am currently driving an all white S15... Working on some other drift cars but nothing finalized as of yet...

    I am also the leader of the drift team named NEMESIS. I just started the team last Friday as a means to get like-minded and skilled players together to have drift battles against each other and other teams... You can check out the team website by clicking the link in my signature...

    At any rate, hope to see you guys online in the drift rooms...

    Hi all,

    Right, I have never tried drifting before so thought that I would give it a bash last night.

    Ground out done races to earn some capital and went and bought myself a Honda S2000 '06 upgraded and tuned it (big thanks to Ryjul240 for the tune).

    So I hit the track. Autumn Mini. I should add at this point that I use a DFP wheel so I may be making things harder for myself from the off and boy is it hard.

    The first hour was spent working on a set of corners that were quite flat but also quite open as I thought that gave me the best chance of actually catching a drift before hitting the wall. But, hit the wall I did many many times.

    I think that I may have been a bit tentative to begin with, not carrying enough speed and not using enough opposite lock (boy do you have to spin that wheel a long way). I persevered.

    After about 2 hours of failure I started to catch some drifts, albeit quite short and not very smokey. Then, to my great surprise, I hooked one up.

    I captured it on my iPhone and uploaded it to YouTube, I have tried to add it below (I am on my iPhone now so it might not work). Would anyone be kind enough to look at it and give me some feedback on it?

    Thanks

    Scara

    Yooo. My name is Albert and I'm new to GT planet. I used to come here during GT1/2 days for the prize car lists, and I've done some lurking during GT3/4, just to see how well I drifted by comparing my replays to people's drift competition videos.

    I started drifting when GT3 came out. When GT4 was released, I picked up a DFP and started sliding with that. My PS2 died on me at the end of 2005(stupid non shielded subwoofers), and I just recently got back into video game drifting the day GT5 came out.

    Figured I'd join now since we all play online and I'd be seeing a lot of you the interwebs. Hi.
