Anyone in here street race? Can someone tell me what this whole 'Drifting' techinque is? I mean I've heard its like having an out of control car in control? Anyone done this before?

I myself dont race, im accident prone enough, and im a chicken...dont get me wrong, I love to DRIVE FAST, but I dont have NOS or anything or race people...... ;)

I race, but I don't do much street racing. I've never heard of drifting. I will look into it though.

I think it's a skid that helps you to turn corners - still going in the original dirction, but facing it at 90?, towards the bend.

The only way I know, is on our car trip to Switzerland, a motel in France had a PS2, with 2Fast 2Furious, or one of those street racing games - anyway, I was pretty good at getting "Jolie Drift!" on the screen :P

Drifting is all about the art of keeping a car as far sideways possible round a pretermined course either on it's own or with/against another competitor. It is virtually the ultimate in car control as the car is always on the limit of spinning out.

I was just told by a friend that over in China or somwhere they are really getting into "synchronized" drifting, which to me sounds crazy because it would be 3 cars side by side, all doing the same drift, and all the while keeping only like three inches between each car. Although this does come from the country that basically originated it, and perfected it. :D

I'll see if I can find the link he sent me on it.

fast cars and car racing are evil

Fast cars and safe racing is the ultimate arenaline buzz. Nothing like hearing your engine redlining in top gear with nothing but open road ahead of you.

:o In "RX-7 Doing a crazy Drift", there's about 2 inches of protection for the crowd, should he spin rather than drift.

I honestly think that's a race track and the guy in the orange rx is just showing off in front of the start/finish straight or he's won cause note the car behind just goes straight by.

Awsome! That multiple car drift looks SWEET! It doesnt suprise me that china and Japan are the countries perfecting this neat technique! It looks fabulous.....I tire companies must love DRIFTERS, becasue im sure it RIPS on the tires MEGA! Brand New tires tore up in 5 minutes!

Those import street races are awesome to see. They've all got custom parts and those loud exhausts. It's illegal here in the states to race but people still do it. Hence the name NFS: Underground.

im not a big fan of cars, would rather they all ground to a halt, and became relics of a fast noisey dirty era. Streetracing is a fudging stupid thing to get involved in, one of my friends got severly hurt in one, great fun if you think computer games that push the boundaries of common sense are real.

anyway, heres what i think of cars....

Didn't know the term for it.

Street racing is very dangerous when done illegally. For the drivers, spectators, and innocent bystanders.

Racing is a lot of fun, but it is definetly something that should be done in the proper place, like a race track. Or a video game. hehe.

Talk about an adrenaline rush!

I totally agree!


Zimm, you could probably do it in a Ford Lightning, or a fixed up F150. Give it a shot. Actually, don't. LOL!

That's a good question... I'll have to try that in the morning when I drop the kid off at school. It might be tough with a long bed though.
j/k ;)

I have to agree with Sideburnt - getting hyped up about a form of transport baffles me. People can actually start drooling after a high speed metal framework.
Especially if you can't drive - the only hype I can imagine is being in one, rather than looking at one.

In my case, I think it's time for the eco-friendly transport revolution: long live the pogo stick!

Art. Metal work. Abstract wood work. I look at it and think ok, so? Its just metal/wood. But to art lovers they may fall weak at the knees and think how magnificent it is.

Well...The EXACT same thing goes for sports cars etc. Us car lovers look at the sleek curves, mean grilles, big scoops and think...Amazing, sexiest machine ive ever seen...Whereas other people (like you) cant understand how some people love all that 'fast metal'.

We all have different thoughts and opinions my friend :D Some love cars, some dont. Some love women (like me), some dont (like straight women). Some people adore literature, some dont.

Watching a car speed from 0 to 100 in 5 seconds then doing an aggressive drag is like watching a birth in motion, or watching a beautiful portrait take shape :)

Drag racing is not racing though, track racing is racing, you need turns to race. :)
