initial d baby!!!!!!!,,,,,,drifting is hot and is an awesome skill,,,,anyone can get behind the wheel and mash the gas,,,,but to use every ounce of horsepower, torque and handling and ability of the car is a work of art,,,drifiting is like being one with the car ,,getting a machine that weighs a couple thousand lbs or more to move the way u want it to,,,,,,,just had to vent
__________________
The focus is now gone, hopefully being taken care of by a new owner,,,,i am a proud owner of an 05 GT now, oh yea

I agree... Driftin' is not true race skills.... It is drivers that intentionally keep their car on the edge of control.... sounds like a [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]TARDED way to "race" I have seen it... A true racer and race car is to maintain total control. Not skiddin' and spining out like some little RC P.O.S.

Well when that "driftin" is the faster way around a particular corner then it is a skill. And even still drifting is fun, looks cool and shows how you can keep a car on the edge without going "out of control"
If its not true race skills then what is the WRC?

you dont understand do ya? when you drift you are in a controlled slide, going through the APEX of the turn. Its the fastest way through tight corners. A good drifter can take a corner marked at 25mph, at 80+mph. You are in control the whole time.
