    Drifting (Power-Slide)

    WARNING: Never drift on the road. It IS illegal. It might seem fun to teenagers as myself, but it's really not worth the risk. Don't go faster than you can handle. Recovering from a spin takes skill and experience. Because severe or uneven wear is a driving hazard, be sure enough tread remains on the tires when finished drifting, but the tires should either be checked out by a professional or changed immediately. If you intend to drift a SUV or pickup, use extreme caution. This can be done but you must be very experienced at drifting.







    Drifting with Rear Wheel Drive and Manual Transmission

    1. Find a car with both rear-wheel-drive and a manual transmission. Ideally it should be a sports car with as close to a 50/50 ratio as possible, and enough power to keep the tires spinning is ideal.
    2. Head to an open area (i.e. an empty parking lot) safely free of pedestrians and motorists and police!
    Hand brake technique:
    1. Accelerate and shift to second gear, which allows the widest variance of speed and is best for harnessing the engine's torque without overly stressing the mechanicals.
    2. Push in the clutch.
    3. Flick the steering wheel to the inside of the turn and steer strongly outside toward the turn.
    4. Simultaneously pull the hand brake.
    5. Immediately step on the gas, let out the clutch, and steer the car in the direction of the slide, using throttle to control the angle of the drift. You're drifting!

    Clutch Kick technique:
    1. Accelerate and shift to second gear, which allows the widest variance of speed and is best for harnessing the engine's torque without overly stressing the mechanicals.
    2. Push in the clutch, and rev the engine up.
    3. Flick the steering wheel to the outside of the turn and steer strongly inside toward the turn.
    4. Simultaneously drop the clutch.
    5. Steer the car in the direction of the slide, using throttle to control the angle of the drift. You're drifting!


    Drifting with Rear Wheel Drive Auto

    1. Find a large, open area.
    2. Accelerate to a speed of 20-30(depending on lot size and room)
    3. Turn the wheel hard and floor it. You should feel the rear end slide around if this is done correctly. Repeat until comfortable with sliding.
    4. Set up a cone in the middle of the lot. Drive up on the cone and turn around the cone. when you begin your turn accelerate hard to get the rear end loose.
    5. Counter steer to control where your car will go after turn.(opposite lock)
    6. Increase speed until comfortable
    7. Note that if your vehicle of choice doesn't have enough power, use the hand brake to initiate the drift, then power over.



    Drifting with Front Wheel Drive

    1. Go to a large, open area.
    2. Pull the handbrake or use the parking brake, riding it out the first time or two to get over your initial fear.
    3. Set up a cone in the middle of the lot.
    4. Drive up to it at speed (between 20 and 30 is desired).
    5. Pull the hand brake and turn toward the cone. Immediately after you feel the back end come around, turn to the opposite direction. This is known as opposite lock.
    6. Repeat the opposite lock at that speed until you can control your car well. Practice this for at least several weeks regularly until it becomes second nature. (Don't do this on roadways. It is dangerous to others and can get you fined.)
    7. Slowly increase speed until you are proficient in a speed you are comfortable with. Get to know that speed--you should never drift above that speed unless you are practicing.
    8. Upgrade. At the same initial speed, flick the steering wheel opposite of the turn and swing it all the way into toward the CONE (not turn, you aren't ready at this stage). As before, when you feel the rear end come around, go to opposite lock.
