thats the same link i put up, its obvious that the kid doesnt know that true drifting is only capable from RWD cars......physics wont allow a FF car to truly drift. :rolleyes: I guess people want to really get into D1 in their front wheel drives

...Tray drifting rawks!!!

From a purist perspective, me, drifting can only be achieved by a car that, in some way, has power being transfered to the ground via the REAR wheels. That can be AWD, RWD,or MR, not FF

You can call your ass dragging "drifting" all you want but it will never be true.

all cars can drift and heres why...

.. drifting is all 4 corners of the car losing grip at the same time and by that simple fact.. it's simply a matter of the chassis being properly balanced to alloy all 4 tires to break traction evenly

now the quest for propper balancing is a long one and yes you can sway the drive wheels to break traction at different points based on how much power they are trying to deliver when the non drive wheels break traction as well

YES it is being on the knife edge and YES it is very difficult to acheive regardless of FWD, RWD or AWD drivetrain.

while drifting you maintain grip with the front tires
all 4 tires breaking loose is just a power slide

with FWD its just ass-dragging, not drifting...simple as that
