          200km = 125mph btw. and for future reference...
          80km =~50mph
          so 160km = 100mph

          and yes. seat time for at least 2 years is going to be needed before you can realistically think of competiting as a pro. and 2 years would be pretty quick.

              Tighten e brake cables or buy a hydro.....

              If you can't brake drift or feint, learn.

              Clutch kick is BORING to do over and over and over again without any other techniques....

              Feint will make a man out of you.

                Is that when you turn a little one way and then swing it the other and throw the back out like that?

                    I guess I'll be studying those until the next event.. I just have to be on the track to try new things... I've tried flicking it on this one (wide deserted) road and I 180'd a couple times.. definitely a track thing.. and way easier with speed(speaking from no experience lol just assuming from the concept)

                      scandinavian flick is the term; (or feint) is the based on weight transfer. it will make your initiations more 'snappy' than just a clutch kick and much more than just ebrake. by snappy i mean ... how quick your car changes from being straight, to being sideways...

                      as you watch videos you will see some people just gradually build angle as they start drifting and others 'snap' into the angle almost instantly. that snap is a pro technique and requires much more on point control and very good reaction speed from a driver. don't get too caught up in snappy initiations (especially just starting out), because the more broad a turn is, the amount of speed before it, how long the turn lasts, what the next turn is... all play a part in how much angle is possible to throw at it without sacrificing speed/line to do it.

                      learning the balance of line, speed, and angle is the real key to drifting.

                          @boxmod...this isn't being d*ck.. this is a real question.. whats your experience drifting like how much seat time/ do you drive in competition yet?


                          • #28

                              Also Tri... unless you are inside of a build/video/picture thread.. double posting ( posting back to back) is not acceptable pretty much forum.. post your ideas all in one box, easier to follow.

                                us drift nationals 2006 (3rd place; my first tandem and first non-oval course in my car ever. video on my youtube below), proam finals 2006, NOPI drift 2007 (whole season- bestt single event 5th place),

                                2008 refreshed car this year and I was a NOPI drifting judge, just practice events, few demos.
