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.




ok first tip


dont be doing that stuff on the streets

2- get a real car

3- (somewhat with the 2nd tip) get a RWD

4- get a real differential and not no open diff

5- get some coilovers

6- go to a track around you and burn those rubber in drifting having a lot of seat time is best ( just practice at a track)

7- be confident in your driving

and my little thing in drifting is your car doesnt need to be pretty or fast (a stock 240 with around 130whp is more than enough)

thanks bro. the tip about not drifting in the streets remind of an anecdote when I almost injured myself really bad coming down from a hill, the speed limit around the corner was 15mph, I was coming down at 50 mph (really stupid of me) and to make it even worse the corner road was made of loose gravel. When I tried to steer, all the wheels lost traction with the surface, my car spinned 3 times, I felt like the tires on the left side where in the air before spinning and almost fell to the stream which it was almost 15 to 20 feet deep. Luckily, I stepped the gas pedal at the right moment when my car was pointing in the right direction after the spinning.

I know it was really stupid of me to do that, but I just wanted to know what were my car's capacities to drift ( trying to know my car a little better)

Look on the bright side, if they don't crash the car, the cops will.

And if the car is something built in a way that cops love it, they'll turn it into an undercover police car with all rare mods still in tact.
