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


drift in the rain?
its so dangerous..But If u do that...I'm sure u r going to die soon...



drifting in the rain is not as dangerous as you think unless your doing it in the mountain pass or something. Yes a lot of drifters i know LOVE the rain because

1. you dont burn as much tire
2. cops dont hear you burn tire
3. easier to break a drift
4. you don't have to go as FAST to break your drift
5. FUN FUN FUN



Certainly your points are correct, but you're forgetting a lot of kids these days are 'drifting' by actually hydroplaning, some have even told me they put some soap in their tire tread.

It may not be dangerous to someone who is trained or with an instructor on a closed course, but to the average joe-blow who is "drifting" their civic or other car in the rain, there's a fine line between losing traction and being able to recover, versus losing traction and being able to plow into something.



certainly, i would always advise any beginner to practice at the track, for practice makes perfect. Drifting is all about good judgment, i have crash in dry/rain weather, broke countless control arm, rims, fenders, bumpers etc. but never wreck my car to the point of no return. Im sure all the drifters out there would agree with me, they've all been down that road before. accidents do happen, and most certainly will, its all part any auto sport. its totally up the driver to decide what is a good spot for them to drift, especially in the rain. for me id find a wide street corner with no park cars, in case i lose control id rather plow into a sidewalk than somebody's car, all part of what i call good judgment.

but thats a reason for those who street race... how would you really mess up your car at a track? yea maybe get couple of dents here and there but you dont really have to mind the dents..lol


Couple of dents here and there costs money... your suspension takes quite a beating too if you manage to hit something and make a dent while drifting. Maybe it's just my shitty car but I guess that depends on the car, my car would take a lot of damage from drifting and my tires are not for drifting either. I don't really know much bout cars so I can't really say but I love cars just don't know too much bout them.




haha yes couple of dents here and there costs money....if you fix it, orr you can try and remove those dents yourselves, ehhhh ive had my suspension for a veryyyy long time and they are still comfortable while sliding, lol you can really use any tires for drifting, just when you start pushing higher hp its better to get grippier tires, drifting and knowing about cars is 2 completely
different things..what car are you driving now?


Stock Nissan 350Z, I've never been taught the correct way to drift either so I doubt I'm doing it right. Maybe that's why I fuck the car up so easily.

Found it easier to drift with my friend's shitty Corolla, lol he was the one who taught me how to drift



is it the track edition? if its only the base you have a little while before you can drift. if youve got the track edition it comes with the stock vlsd if you got base model then your going to need to get a differential and coilovers always help out drifting

i have a track edition so im stuck with the sucky viscous for now but hopefully ill swap it out to a 2 way or something soon

lol shitty corolla? like the initial d one? im guessing it has coils and a diff

(are you on my350z?)



Nope, I didn't think I need a track edition cause at the time I just wanted a car for transportation lol I have a 2004 350Z roadster and it only comes in touring I think. And yeah my friend's shitty Toyota GTS was so easy to drift and he let us fuck it up too.

I've heard of My350z but nope I'm not on there




ok no offense but i think your feeding bs, i have drifted a corolla gts 85-86 with suspension/differential and some power mods they are much harder than other cars like 240's rx7's etc, i think your watching too much initial d.. lol (yes and my friends corolla is very nicely done)




i would have to agree with you about drifting 85-87 corolla gts. yes, easy to break traction, and even easier to overstreer.

i been drifting 86's since back in 2000 then got sick fixing stuff, upgraded to sc300 (welded diff). once in a while i would drift my lil bro's 86 (once mine) and let me tell you, i spin out like im a rookie all over again, no joke.

another thing 86 coupes and hatchbacks have totally different feeling. if you trouble handling a hatch, you will certainly have trouble with a coupe.

whatt?? did you even read what i said, easy to break traction? i think any car is really easy to break traction (clutch/ebrake/faint) easier to oversteer? lol trust me bro 86 is harder to drift than initial d claims, idk its just the steering felt really tight and its low power makes it even more challenging i mean i can still slide a rolla but idk feels like i have to try harder in the car

lol a truck is usually RWD...hahaha go slap on a welded and go try it out!! LOL jk jk


I've never seen initial D but personally it felt easier to drift. I don't know much bout drifting I've only made many failed attempts trying to learn it and doing it with my own car scares me cause I cherish my hard earned baby. With that on my mind I prob tried to hold back to not do too much damage to my car and I'm only comparing between 2 cars.

Yeah I've had people tell me it's a great car to drift with. It's my only form of transportation right now so I'm afraid of making a mistake and screwing up my car.

I don't know if it's a common misconception but I was lead to believe drifting puts a lot of wear and tear on a car.

ohhh i seee yea i have couple cars and another one im working on..yes it puts lots of wear and tear even if it is fully built so thats why i use my beater to drift (240) and my z to DD and go drifting once in a while.

but the problem going drifting with my z is that i need another car driving to carry my spares (i can only fit 1 spare in the car),and in my z i sometimes hesitate if overshoot my line (more than what i expected) i get scared when i transition cause of the haybale so i slow down too much, but in the 240 i try to get close to all the clipping points

Agreed. I've torn up my cars several times, especially at 4x4/trailtrack/amateur driver cup rally events.
I powerslid through some gravel once like a complete n00b, ended up kicking a ton of rocks at people while also a small pothole appeared and caught the tire and rim, pulling the axle out completely. fun times, fun times.

The only thing i was stating (which i have a habit of not always making clear points) was that most of the people around here today don't really drift, and if they do, it's pure street racing and most don't realize the severity of the consequences. Sure, it's difficult to damage your car to being totalled by a track meet, but what if that guy didn't realize he'd have to pay a few hundred for a new LSD as well as say, a ton of parts he can only get at a marked-up money-hungry dealer?

Just sayin' people need to use caution and really plan out even the worst case scenarios.
