Some turns are faster to grip and some are faster to drift. Drifting is almost the samething as gripping, you are taking the same lines going in to and out of the turn. But in drifting you enter a turn way faster so you lose traction. For me I do both, what ever gets me around the turn faster.

Yeah, I agree.
I've seen idiot public drifters run into innocent bystanders because they decided it would be cool to show off their "mad" skills on in a school zone.
There was snow on the ground, and so the asshole decided he'd like to impress some elementary school kids with his drifting, almost hit like a young girl. Barely being able to avoid her, he decides to speed up while flipping her off. Ugh...scumbag.


yup yup i agreeeeee
when i went to go pick up my gfs sister at her school, this kid with a 240 at her school looks at my car starts revving and takes off and almost swipes my gfs sister. so i leave calmly and as soon as i leave the parking lot i see him turn the corner so i cruised and turned where he turned.he had turned into industrial area so i take off after him catch up in like 2 secs and then he pulls over and tries to act gangster on me, and i just socked that foo and told him to get off the streets and told him to come back and apologize to my gfs sister and he did. he never did it again..haha yah long story...but im wasted on a thursday night and about to watch anime..lol

but honestly i drift off track, we found a place where security guy is cool with it (he says he rather have us do it somewhere safe than on streets) so he let us in and let use like this abandoned parking lot lets us in and closes off the gate for us (only in the rain since it doesnt leave tire marks...+ it saves us money on tires!!)

it depends, cause sometime drifting is fast when it comes to super tight turn but on wider turn its not fast. but for me i rather drift cause its fun and kills time not to mention always put you to the edge.

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?

watch tokyo drift, think you can do it because you own a skyline. dont practice, just do it on the main roads when it's partially busy to look cool. smash your back end into a bus at its stop. be the laughing stock of the state. remember you havent' paid your insurance. goodbye skyline. hello messed up bus. hello payments demanding your attention.

drift for fun but be sure to know what you're doing first.

It's faster if you know what you're doing. If you're really good, you can go through a turn without slowing down. If you're really good, you can even accelerate during the turn.

Not many people are at this level, though, so I'd grip if I were most of you. God knows I grip. I only drift in the rain to save my tires, in which turning speed doesn't matter. I'm just having fun.

I have to disagree with drifting being slow... the speed some of the top D1 drivers enter a turn (side way) is sometimes faster than grip drivers for the fact they will slow down more through the turn. typically grip drivers slow down more entering turns to maximize the tires grip and to control understeer, which typically allows them to exit the turn faster.

There are tons of videos out there on Youtube etc.. and you can see the speeds they enter are extremely fast considering they are sideways and (out of control) per say verse a typical racing setup.

Personally I love drifting as a hobby, problem is its like the word love which is so over used by everyone it has no meaning, now people associate drifting with anyone thing going sideways where most people don't even know what a real drift is.

Also I will throw this in there, Rally drivers are pretty much some of the best drivers out there compared to all racing in degrees of overall toughness.

For those of you that say grip is always faster, it's not necessarily true. It all depend on the situation and skill level. And drift is not only for show, i've seem drifts beat grip and vice versa.

I hate anyone that races in the street unless it's highly organized to minimize hazard and tickets which i highly doubt there is any so don't race in the streets

...your post tells me you have no idea what drifting actually is.

Drifting isn't throwing a car into a corner really fast and losing traction, that'd be a powerslide.

Drifting is spinning the rear tires to lose traction, and lets the car enter a 'controlled slide'. The more gas you give it, the more the car turns into the curve. Which is why a lot of beginner drifters spinout while trying to drift
