I'm not sure of the names/techniques, but I'll either stomp on the gas for lower speed high angle corners; or drive fast into the corner, brake to take weight off the back while turning in pretty hard, as soon as the back starts to come out, stomp on the gas and turn the other way.

I find it pretty smooth up until I straighten out of the drift, the back end just whips back into a straight line pretty harsh. I'm not sure how to correct for a smoother exit, I'm guessing i may be at too steep of an angle coming out of the drift - but I really have no idea what needs to be done to correct the whiplash on exit.

brake drifting I think thats what it called. press the brakes for a sec to transfer weight forward while making a sharp turn, and then counter steering facing the direction u want to go while laying down the gas

Im more of a weight shift guy.
brake hard into the corner, heel and toe the gears, then reduce the brake a bit turn in sharp, the back end just comes round. abit like trail braking, but with the sliding.
but its a combination of many ways depending on the track.

Hey brother, Its not that your comming out of drift at too steep an angle. Your most likely not powering through the whole way. Once u hit the corner and your wanna straighten out, Slowly bring the wheel back as the car straightens out and keep roasting your tires. If you power through correctly on the exit your car should still have the rear tires loose and spinning once shes straightened out throttle control and get traction and move to the next turn. Dont release the gas or lower throttle until your car is straight where u want her. Your tires are hooking back up to the road while ur comming straight so your getting that "aggressive" traction gain.

For the hand brake drift, do you need to step on the clutch? I saw some people do, and some don't. I currently do because that's what I saw in the drift bible.

Without the clutch, you won't do anything.


brake + clutch + ebrake = boogie

One could apply that same logic to people who feel compelled to read drifting forums while feeling that way about drifting.

I am not a big fan, but acknowledge there are skills involved.

I personaly use weight transfer to engine braking and clutch kick. I only realy hand brake when I whant to kick out further. It all depends on the situation I'm drifting in though

I think its called 'dynamic" drifting... where you use weight transfer to start the drift is my favourite in my rx3, I guess the same will apply when I get to the track in the 8 !
