    You can't really expect to drift like that video on the first try..

    Go buy an 240 or a S13, buy some Confort hard and go to Tsukuba or Autumn Ring and just practice. If you dont slide, you're not going fast enough :p

    Dude how do you play barefoot? I have to use slippers whenever I use my G25 pedals.

    Yeah, it really feel awkward in the first week because i'm driving with shoes on daily basis to go for work. The reason i can play barefoot is 'take of the shoes' culture when enter most home made me get used to it after few months. But i still using shoes/slippers when gone driving.

    I have been trying to get a hang of drifting for a while. i haven't been able to completely nail it, but i've gotten alright. I used the HKS Genki Silvia tune from @shmogt on Team-shmo.com

    Just got my G-27 after drifting with the DS3 for the last 3 years (since GT-5). I feel so noob now... T_T
    I've only been at it for about an hour, but man this is a lot tougher than I thought it would be! When I come back from work, I think I'll try doing circles at Willow and see how the dang thing handles there. Until then, I'm back to square one!

    There is?? ... *boots up PS3* ... Oh man, there totally is! You, sir or madam, have just made Ridge Racer 7 playable on the G27! Gratitude and kudos to you!

    Once PSN is back, I'll try to not suck at drifting in GT6 quite so much.

    ..............I was looking for something like this!! I'm utterly hopeless at drifting so I just skip those drift trials altogether sometimes. Hopefully I can improve a little now...

    Hi, i just wanted to share my road to drifting. I am a completey drift rookie, and couldn't get the hang of it, first with a DS3, then with G27. It was totally frustrating, i just had no clue how to approach drifting in the coffee breaks. So i left them alone for a year, and also avoided the drift seasonals, as watching the top guys didn't help much either.

    So before christmas, i was determined enough to give it a try with the wheel. Total frustration again, until i switched both front and back tires to CH. The car was loose, but you could feel the the car sliding and then countersteering a lot better. Then i just got the hang when letting go the drift points, and trying first to drive through the track, just watching for the right speed to enter and exit corners. You will naturally make the car drift in the process, and learn to apply countersteering, no need to use the handbrake. After you get the feel and can control the car, you can then try to enter the corner a little slower, but apply a little too much throttle. Then i just let this process be guided by the drift points getting higher and higher.

    I was still a long process, until i was consistent and had the feeling of control to make this fun. Now i don't dread the drift seasonals. I don't like tuning much, let alone tuning for drifting, but it's fun taking a stock F40 on CHs for a spin.:D

    I'm guessing I should ask my question in this thread; is it possible to hold an opposite lock drift easily through an entire corner on a DS3?

    I've been trying this for a while and I can barely get it to happen or rarely, but I'm able to do so with my wheel. On the DS3 I always wind up in a chain of steering back and forth quickly through the corner.

    Yeah, just depends on the corner really and adjustments during the corner.

    I registered just to put my 2 cents in on this. I have a g27 and cant drift properly on any rotation setting, but can drift very well with the ds3. For all the ds3 users struggling to drift I actually recommend having a go with sports soft or hard and just enough power to spin them up but not full power upgrades. Choose a mid speed corner like most of suzuka and just go get a feel for it. while the snap back is worse with the grippier tyres the forwards motion you retain might be easier to begin with. start with sliding out of the exit of turns. I also had throttle mapped to the right analog stick (does anyone else do this?) For better throttle control..sometimes its the panic throttle off that upsets the car and it snaps back.

    Yeah I think it gives better throttle control. Map the ebrake to R2 for different levels of lock from the handbraking. Or R1 opposed to Circle. This will allow you to keep your thumb on the throttle.

    Hey people, does anyone know how to fix oversteer properly when drifting? I've been practicing with my G27 and sometimes, while being in 2nd gear, my car oversteers... Going back to 1st gear stops the oversteer but it doesn´t put my car back in the line. What I'm trying to ask is: is there any usual rapid way to "change sides" while drifting? thx

    Take your foot out of the gas :p

    Or try moving the brake bias to the rear and brake when you want to change direction.

    I use DS3 and have been trying to learn how to drift since GT3. Drifting feels to have gotten easier as the games have progressed. All I know is that CH tires can make all the difference. I do occasionally tune off of what limited knowledge I have about tuning a drift car. I'm no where near decent at drifting or tuning (full lap sustained drifts are only a dream to me), but I finish with the top 3,000 people for drift trials, so I guess that's saying something. :) Driving manual is a huge help for the torque and power can pull you much more in one gear than another. Practice is everything.

    I agree Drifting has gotten so much easier, as well as controlling would be spin outs, I too own a G27, and having had it through out Gt5 and Gt6 I have noticed, the greater ease of sticking the rear end of the car out and maintaining the drift, up until now I was unsure whether it was me or the game that had progressed.
