Focus Drifting!!

so the other day i drove up to PA. it was a little wet/dry so i found an interesting parking lot that was mildly open. hehe so i couldnt help myself and i did a little drifting, just twice... scared the crap out of me but at the same time it was the biggest addrenalin(sp) rush ive had in a long time... =D

oh yeah, i dont think drifting is good for the tires.... i saw my burn marks.. haha but it was worth it baby! yeah! anyone here ever drift before.. i know cause its FW its weird but it still works! tell me tell me any techniques you guys got. =D

i do it whenever it rains, i pull into my street, rip the ebrake and turn, and put down the ebrake and feather the gas and keep it sideways, im pretty good at it imo and my friends think im pretty good. I stopped once i put my suspension on though

Drifting in a z28 is a lot more fun than the focus. Downside is that is always drifts, even when you don't want it to. This car handles sooo much better
