I made this so that uninformed anime fans (no offense) could understand the automotive world much better. Please use this thread to clarify any questions you have about terminology, tech, driving, etc.


Drifting is NOT the fastest way around the corner. Most of the time, gripping is best. But extremely tight, narrow corners and adverse road conditions are when drifting becomes useful.

Yes, the "gutter run" does make you go faster, but by a little bit. WRC drivers use a similar technique.
