i can drift my focus on dirt easy, but im not gonna try on pavment. Its the most fun ive had in a car. I actually drifted (kinda) the last 2 runs of an auto-x cuz my back tires were flat, and i didnt have a way to fill them up. I got some attaboys from some of the rwd people, but my times sucked.

Ok, Im sorry but drifting is so ghey. #1, drifting is the slowest way around a turn - FACT! So, WHY WHY WHY do they think its some kind of skill? You get any car with mad power and you can kick the ass out. BFD. My Miata did that with the front bar on soft, rear sway on hard with the same adjustments with the Konis. I didnt wreck, can I be in magazines!?

The japanese guys like that [:)][:)][:)]ola Tarzan Yamada or whatever they have in mags are tools. Its not like they have mad skills to go and win races...they just slide around all damn day and happen to not kill anyone. Soemtimes the get overzealous and loose it and screw up their cars....

Sorry, but I like to run as far as I can, hitting the brim of the road, following the racing line through the S, nailing the apex and ballin out.

Freakin morons. I hate drifting...so what if Im the only one...its just plain stupid.

But the cars are awesome!

Id rather watch nascar...they wreck going a lot faster...thats just me though..

Sorry, had to vent..

It's obvious you don't know what you are talking about. Have you ever watched a mountain downhill race in Japan? Didn't think so. If you had you'd realized that drifting will blow your little "nascar" apex corner shit clear out of the water. The whole point behind drifting is to maintain close to the same high corner entry speed thoughout the entire curve. You try that slowing down for the apex shit, and I guarantee you'll have car running into your ass, or passing you...whichever comes first. Sure the whole "clipping the apex" idea works on nascar tracks, but you try that on the tight consecutive turns found in Japan's many downhill mountain tracks, and you'll clearly notice your disadvantage.

Oh, and BTW, I lived in Japan for 5 years, and watched 2 downhill races from the sides personally. Just thought I would clear that up.

Sorry, had to vent

k, thanks

you gotta also remember that there are two different types of drifting, the one like you said, which is meant so that you go through the corner at a faster speed, thus having a higher exit speed, thus being faster (like in mario kart, when you hit the R button), and there is also show drifting, where the only point is to show off how much you can smoke your back tires, and spin around in circles. I believe you two are talking about the two different types of drifting.
