is it faster if you drift or if you slow down and take a perfect go kart turn ....
drift takes away loads of speed and im thinking its overated in movies and games

Grip driving is faster, Drift is just for show/entertainment but its not as easy to do at high speeds as it looks.

There is a trick that can really put a turn easily but can put a HUGE burden on the car it self.
The trick is if its a sharp turn, go into the turn normally and when nearing the exit release the gas and floor it after waiting 5 - 10 seconds... it will put a HUGE burden on the tires to regrip the road

It would be fairly odd to see a car drift around a nascar track xP
I honestly don't find a bunch of cars going in a circle 300 times entertaining, no offense to whoever does.

^I've always hated Nascar but if you watch it a few times you can really get an appreciation for how technical it is. Even if they are 'just turning left' theres still a LOT of shit they have to concentrate on during the race.

Grip is much faster on pavement. Drift is faster in gravel, thats why you see lots of powerslides and drifting in rally racing and none of that in formula one.

I wouldn't want to do it.. too many cars and not enough room and gravity pulling towards the wall or other drivers. I guess any crash in general I'd like to avoid.. but I would however love to have one of those helmets with gatorade bottles built in

Like any other sports hobby, drifting involves a lot of practice and time. Drifting corners is a good way to learn but go out to drift tracks and practice there too. If your area has one. Anyways, drifting might be faster but you will fnck up your tires and suspension.

drifting is kool, it does slow your car down a lot, however you can pull a drift off and cut a few seconds off your racing time if you do it proffessionaly. but still, drifting burns a lot of rubber, and it costs a lot of money to get a new set of tires everytime you do a few drfits.

its only fast when you miss an apex other than that its pretty much just for show.

Exception: Rally Racing, there it is technically faster to slide, but thats due to the offroad and winter tires they use. second thought i dont think rally is a drift its more of a slide since a drift is purposful isnt it?

Ok!! I'll take you guys straight...Grip is more faster than drift even veteran racers will tell it to you straight out. but DRIFT is the most exciting way to get into corners.....I prefer both!!!

hmmm well on tight turns if you turn to sharp without braking you will flip... Also if you slow down and take a turn normally, you have to wait till your facing the right way to accelerate, but with drifting you can accelerate before your actually done with the turn. Not that i know any of this first hand, this is just what i observed
