Well, I drift - I enjoy myself a lot. A lot of people do it to impress people; hell at first thats why I orginally got into it. My friends got me into it before Tokyo Drift came out so 240sx parts were soooo easy to get... so affordableee, but when that movie came out.. All of that CHANGED drastically. Now everyone is tokyo drift in this biatch. Back to point - I drift, I go to the track. Its alright... Kinda an expensive hobby - Tires cost, Allignment gets raped... That would be a problem IF I didn't work at a Tire shop. Lol... Uhm... Moral of this story is. Its good if you do it for your own kicks and giggles, dont' get into it to simply impress friends. Its dangerous to do it on the street so DON'T do that... Also, it's actually pretty dangerous at the track too so be careful Lmmfao xD.



yea the tyoko drift made me start to learn drifting,ahhaa, but its alright, if you have friends tat own a tire shop, it will be fine,, ahha well there are definitely race tracks for cars. so why not put a team and racE?


if u have any local pick and pulls u can usualy get really cheap tires like 5.00 a pice.

also if u hit up the local tire changin places some times they will sell off or give away the old tires that still have some tred left on em. i wouldent use em for the highway but there fine just to go burn up in a parking lot.


yea yea. i know, ahaha, u drifT?

Drifting makes me happy and sad at the same time. Happy cuz its fun. Sad because now that its popular parts for my car cost a fkn fortune. Its pretty sad when parts from the dealership are cheaper then the parts on e bay and such.

I payed 2k for my car years ago. body has no dents and like 2 tiney rust spots. Now days cars in horrable shape sell for 3x that and even the shells are now like 2k.

Drift tax is fkn rediclous.


I found that using a car no one would think of using as a drifter was the way to go. Using a 240 or S13 or whatever they're called(sorry, I'm kinda ignorant with respect to the import models...) really is an expensive choice these days. I use a 1981 chevy malibu 4-door. Cost me all of $400 for the rolling chassis. It's not the coolest looking car, but it definately looks different from everything else. Oh and the question? Drifting is the hardest, yet funnest thing I've ever done with a car! Nothing else even comes close.


oh drifing is a skill. its not hard or not hard,, it needs practice,,

I don't do it because my car is FF car. Even if I had a RWD I probably wouldn't do it. I don't have the money to renew my tires all the time -_-



Dont have money for new tires? drift in the rain : ) its a lot easier and dosent do much dmg to your tires.


No thanks I don't want to total my car. I worked hard for it -_-


I dident say go bust phat driftz in the middle of a highway lol.

go find large empty parking lot usualy best after store hours or during a holiday and practice. u ant gotta go crazy with it start small : )


I don't think FF cars should be used to drift anyways. I might end up flipping my car or something.


No it will just howl around corners understeering.


yea,, of course. ahha hes right.. IT HOWLS..

uhmmm no....240's before tokyo drift costed more ...(stock) my friend bought his 92 s13 back in high school for about 4g's i bought my couple years after he bought his and i got mine for cheaper i really dont know where you look to buy cars but check the prices again, you can get one modded (coils/diff couple other goodies) for the same price as a stock one back in the day 240's are cheap nowadays (oh and this is in cali) lol there is no drift tax... but yes there are some people who think they can get more than what its actually worth cause of tokyo drift, but a smart person wouldnt buy something overprice now would they?

lol uhmm i wouldnt really go with cheap tires, cheap tires dont give that good grip like performance tires do, you'll notice with cheap tires that your line will be thrown off compared to having good performance tires but i give it that cheap tires are good to practice...oh and guys please dont go drifting out in the streets, we have tracks for that specific reason, keep it safe go to your local track, and i dont see how the track can be so dangerous yes the haybale can be very intimidating but its better that you run your car into the haybale than running your car into another car/person

guys please keep drifting off the streets





oh and OP whatsup with the thread name? "what do you think about CAR drifting?" why not just put drifting? since we already know its about cars

We're kinda lucky to have a guy, who also drifts, who puts on drift days at a local circle track. I do like being able to sharpen my skill in a controled enviroment. About tires, I've found that my car doesn't seem to car what is on it...... I started the year running 245/50-16's, then went to 225/50's for the last drift day. After shreding those I put on the skanky 215/70's, that were on the car when I bought it, and the car was consistent all day, it didn't seem to have a preference. Weird. I suppose it could be me, being this is my first year.

Drifting looks fun and has its advantages in a circuit. I think it's getting overrated though. People get all excited about how cool it looks when it is something that should be used when there is a turn requiring it for maximum speed. By the way, drifting sounds nasty. It feels and sounds like you're about to crash or out of control. Going really fast with the G's pushing you back feels nicer and smoother. I can only imagine how it feels to break the sound barrier on a high-speed jet.

I just love drifting. Even though my car is a front-wheel drive, I still do it. It's not perfect, and it's really hard with a FF. I would like some tips to improve my drifting. Sometimes I'm even afraid that my engine would blow up cuz my car doesn't have a tachometer, I just shift gears by ear.
