    Merry Xmas everyone!! I'm just starting out in GT5 with my only purchased car being my RX-7 Spirit R Type A (FD) '02. Straight from the dealership I totally decked this car out with every single upgrade. 600 Hp and 1k weight is amazing when racing but I can't quite make the drifting workout due to the fact that I no idea how to tune it! I've found a few setups and can't wait to try them now that I have made an account here to view. Anyways let me know if you have any ideas and I will post my setup once I figure out what works for me!

    Let's see what we can do over here!

    My name is Wienish, I'm new to the forum, and also new to the drifting section in GT5. I had a racing duo with a friend of mine in another game, GTA IV.

    I'm driving the orange car and we didn't exactly practise that much. Just put out a course and did it, that explains the damage as well haha.

    Back to Gran Turismo. I like speed, I like drifting, I like funny cars. Screens will come as soon as I know how to put them online (so if anyone could help me)..

    Pretty new to GTP, but liked the drifting in GTPSP and trying to get into it here.

    First of all tried practising technique in a classic

    Tsukuba Circuit SilEighty by richjcahill, on Flickr

    and then after a bit of time, and some hints from here I tweaked the suspension settings and added a tiny bit more power and best of all a new coat of paint.

    I think this will be the beasty I'll try to tame.

    Afternoon everybody!

    The names Dave, originially from the UK, but now residing in Southern Ireland, in the mighty Co. Kerry!

    Been stalking this site since GT5's release day back in November, and only just got around to signing up :)

    I love all aspect fo GT, from doing laps of the "Ring, to kicking back with a bit of B-Spec :D

    I have just bought myself a Lotus Carlton from the UCD (took me fecking weeks to find!), as it one of my dream cars, and made the decision to make her drift spec 8)

    I have treated her to an engine overhaul and had the chassis sorted (you just can't trust previous owners!) And finally specced up the engine to about 600/700bhp.

    I have done some testing and I am fairly happy with her tail-happiness attitude :D

    I will get a few pics up when I get chance :D

    Might have to sell a car or 2 tonight to buy the other Carlton that just popped up in the UCD to keep standard, or even spec her for speed and cornering.... hmm....

    Anyways! Looking forward to my broadband improving early next year so I can get online for some sideways action with some of you instead of just downloading the updates :p

    I'm SuperGTRacer and I'm kind of new to drifting. I drift in a Toyota Celica 1600GT (TA22), and yes I know it's not JDM. I'll be uploading pictures of me drifting sometime.

    Hey everybody, im new to gt5, never played the other gt series games. I really like drifting although i still got to practice a lot. I can drift preety good in LFS wih my g25. I dont like the thing that you cant setup the g25 on the ps3 like you can on the pc. because i have my FFB settings set to lowest and i still have to fight wih the wheel to countersteer etc. Btw i curently drift a nissan s15, if you want to add me on psn: OnoMaToPeja_

    Hi all. Since I've started to play GT5, decided to create an account here. Actually it is not a first simulator game that I've played so far. My drifting career has started in Live For Speed game. I am really proud of being a Team Falken LFS member. LFS sim has changed my life a lot. I've met great people who were drifting with me around LFS scene and lots of them actually became my real friends that I talk to everyday on teamspeak. Our team started July 2nd 2007 so its been over 3 years so far. I actually joined a year and a half ago but nvm. Maybe some day you will see our teamboard or something in GT5 forums :). You can visit our website if you wanna know some more info about our team, community etc.


    So ye, I use a Logitech G25 Rev. 1.01 wheel + some joystick for an ebrake. You may see my gaming setup or some drifting in my (actually old) onboards. > Videos section in our website "dot3e" user on Youtube.
    I'm looking forward to meet some nice and friendly people in this community and have fun with them going sideways! I've taken part in many drift competitions, also organized couple of them myself so I am up for something in GT5. You may usually find me on some drift servers or our lfsdrift.net server with my m8s. For sure, I will try to continue my attention about drifting in real life!

    I hope I will enjoy my stay here.

    Hey, I'm not so new in drifting. I have managed to master a couple of maps:
    Tsubaka Circuit
    Autumn Ring Mini
    Autumn Ring

    I use maybe 3 or 4 cars to drift (depending on the track):
    Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR ‘08 (fully modified)
    Nissan Fairlady Z (Z34) ‘08 (fully modified)
    Amemiya FD3S RX-7 (fully modified)
    Toyota SUPRA RZ ‘97 (fully modified)

    important message: (If you are looking for a crew to join message me AMR_iiNSANE for information on how to join. You have to tell me what your good at as in what types of races: Super GT, Rally, Drift etc. I'm the President of the crew but I do mostly all the recruiting in the crew. Message me ASAP and we'll tell you a name you will get.)

    So I tried drifting a few times, bought an AE86 83', set it up how I saw around here. Best I could do was about 100 points. I gave up after 10 minutes, car just drove me nuts, sold it. Jumped in Vette Grand Sport, no power, sport hard tires, all the weight out, BOOM, 5000 points 2nd lap. Got some drivetrain and suspension, netted 7000 points. Somebody in open lobby said its cause I dont know how to drift, well, ok if you say so pal. So, I thought Id say hi here in hopes of finding someone else who drifts in Vettes, Vipers, Lambos, Ferrari. Anybody drift a Porsche ? I do, dont know that I would call it "drifting" though technically it is, I enter and exit slideways, but its more about getting around the track fast an fun. (I know I know, RUF)

    I'm somewhat new here. I'm a pretty good drifter with the DS3 and still learning with the G27, also I'm i big photomode buff. I've only played online once, for I have few GT5 friends(and I can never catch the ones I am friends with).

    I would love to make friends to drift with and take photos of.

    I also manage a drift team

    Hey everyone, I'm kinda new to the site but not to drifting in games. Earliest game I can honestly say I tryed drifting in was Rush 2 for N64 it was always fun to slide around the corners in that game. :p

    I usually drift in the D1 Cars(Gotta love cars with a Livery) with custom tunes to suit my taste and RX-7s and S15s. Just recently bought a 22B from the UCD and have it tuned really well so far.

    Hi guys, I'm very curious about the drifting in GT5 and I am fascinated by all your drifting skills but before I get myself to drift anything / anywhere, I must tell you: I do not own a wheel. Also unable to purchase one in the near future so I'm stuck with the DS3 controller.
    So my question is: is it even possible for me to make decent drifts ??
