    Drifting videos (Off Topic but interesting)

    Hi all,

    Advertisement


    I just came across this video, and thought some of you might like it.

    <a href="http://supasixfo.astyrrian.com/doriftu/Doriftu.WMV" target="_blank">http://supasixfo.astyrrian.com/doriftu/Doriftu.WMV</a>

    It's an 8.5MB Windows Media video that runs for 4-5 minutes of cars drifting in Japan. It's all amazingly graceful I have to say.

    Tyres must be damn cheap in Japan, and there must be some spectacular accidents on corners in city intersections! mallet

    My favourite is the 4 or 5 red cars that come down the straight towards the camera and all go sideways around the corner in formation.

    Heheheh

    Handbrake while you're back tyres are on thick cardboard should do the trick.

    I love Needels! He is great, was on BBC's Top Gear and is now on Ch5's '5th Gear' (also shown on Lifestyle channel in Aus). Classy driver if there ever was one. I love it when he drives some beast like an Audi RS6 and then just moans about understeer .

    There is a great collection of demo videos here <a href="http://www.firesport.com/videos/" target="_blank">http://www.firesport.com/videos/</a>

    No frogs in this bunch, all jap imports.
    Great drifiting clips of a jun supra & numerous silvias/180's.
    My personal fav is the 8 sec gtr r34 8-99 run (in the drag section). This car is just nuts, watch the video and you will see why!! dance dance dance dance dance

    Yeah we managed to seal three trays together with some marine grade sealant. Worked for a bit longer. Great fun, its like being on ice. Mind you, sideways fun isn't really fun unless you've got the right wheels for that sort of action driving the car.

    Drifitng is pretty popular here in SA with Japnese Motorsport (JMS) hosting drift meetings every now and then, check out their site <a href="http://www.japnesemotorsport.com.au" target="_blank">www.japnesemotorsport.com.au</a> and look at the videos/picture section. It is possible to drift a FWD car but RWD are the car of choice, mostly Silvia's RX7's, Skylines, 180SX, Sprinters and um Geminis, at the last drift day I went to there was a V8 supercharged ute that was completely mental, it would drift half way through a corner and then just spin. Then there was JMS's 600bhp Skyline that had no problem in breaking traction and maintaining a drift down the entire back straight, nice!!

    Yeah glad a couple of people in this forum have tried this.

    When I was young and foolish... wink I rember my mates and I used to raid maccas and grab 6-8 trays after school and go to a quiet dead-end street and do the old maccas tray under the rears.

    I had a Mazda121 back then (over 5 years ago now! boy I am old) and it's handbrake worked very well wink used to just keep going around hanginnig the tail untill the trays melted through, then with a bit of momentum you could keep sliding around but burning rubber instead. Wasn't kind to the tyres, but I didn't care back then, hehehe was great fun.

    We all had FWD cars, once we ran outa maccas trays, you would put your car into reverse and do reverse donuts wink they were also fun.

    After spending 2 years of my life (highschool yr 11 & 12) thrashing the sh*t outa my car and blowing 6 CV joints, 2 sets of tyres, one axcel, one drive shaft and a rear suspension rebuild all on a $4,000 mazda 121 I was completely broke and soon learnt how to not drive a car...or more learn how too LOOK AFTER a car wink hehehe.

    But I recommend any p plater to get out there and give those plastic trays a workout in your FWD cars!!! Do it while you still have a good excuse if/when you get caught wink

    What does one do in an underpowered RWD car then?

    Gravel can still provide a lot of fun I guess .

    I suppose on an underpowered RWD you could put them under the front wheels! Would be interesting!

    Cheers,

    Oops.. blush sorry about dud link. The gemini that was at the last draft meeting was stock according to the commentator and although it did'nt smoke through every corner like the more powerful cars it held on to produce very long drifts indeed, not too bad for a old gemini!
