Obviously it had to be me to start this thread...Rice A Roni for days![burnout]

Anyways, share your drifting experiences, fails, etc. here. Just thought to get some fun, sometimes Rice-accusing (all in good fun) discussion going![race][driving][woot]

I was 17 and dumb. Didn't know much about the way cars worked. I had a Honda accord. As I pulled out of the freeway, and since no one was behind me or in front, I decided to try and "drift" it around the long turn. It was raining so I thought, " Hey this should be easy!"
I ripped the ebrake and slid right into the curb hahahahahahaha

I was driving my 98 Escort wagon on some gravel roads around where I grew up and sliding around corners hopping over some crests, fun stuff like that and found a road that lead down into a gravel pit. I had just pulled this sick ebrake hairpin from broken asphalt onto gravel and had all kinds of confidence. So I'm picking up speed and came up on a hard right into a long left and cut the right a bit too much and bounced. The car started to go sideways and I was pointing at a gravel cliff face for about 5 seconds sliding the wrong way and came to a stop at the edge of a 10' embankment with a lot of nothing to slow me down if I had gone over the edge. I probably would have rolled it a couple times but thankfully it stopped.
