    [UNDERSTEER] scares the driver
    [OVERSTEER] scares the passengers
    [SPINNING OUT] scares everyone

    [DRIFTING] scares the public

    Wow, those drivers have some really nice throttle control; overall talented!

    That one word keeps reminding me of Mario kart drifting

    Nothing like the smell of burned rubber and tire smoke in the evening.

    Could you achieve this on a 2 wheel vehicle, like a motorcycle?

    So I'd imagine you wouldn't want too much of a negative camber to allow your tires to slip more?

    how many of you on here don't believe you can drift a car unless it's RWD?

    I'm still not getting the purpose of drifting. I can see how knowing how to drift can be helpful as part of an evasive maneuver but as seen here it's still not clear what defines 'the best' or 'the winner'. Is it the amount of tire smoke created? Is it all based on some form of a style-component that the un-trained eye fails to understand? It seems rather obvious that the car with the fastest lap-time is not the winner. Will a dueling component ever be incorporated? Note: "About 80% of lung cancer deaths are caused by smoking, and many others are caused by exposure to secondhand smoke. Smoking is clearly the strongest risk factor for lung cancer, but it often interacts with other factors. Smokers exposed to other known risk factors such as radon and asbestos are at even higher risk". Also: I wonder how many of these boys feel that their parents are totally lame, simply because Mom & Dad don't understand what it's all about.

    Amazing footage! Wish there were drift events like this where I live, but drifting is extremely niche in my country :/

    you forgot to mention braking drifts but all in all nice content

  11. Kevin Cho

    honest question from someone not familiar with this stuff. Why are so many of the cars open hoods? Is is heat, weight or some other reason (like just being too lazy to fix it completely after crashing so many times?)

  12. Tidiest Flyer

    Anybody see the black 86. I got a serious deja vu when I did.

  13. Pam Cole

    As a Mom, I thank you. I knew what it was, but I didn't know there was a name for it. Watched a viral video where a guy got nabbed by cops for "drifting," but it wasn't clear what he was attempting in the video.

    Can the e-brake drift or any other methods be used by a front wheel drive car?

  15. Shad0wStyle

    make a video about different drifting styles like 360 entry reverse entry and so on 🙂

  16. OhhDeeSiix WolfKing

    I have a 1997 BMW 318i. do you think it would be worth it to build for drifting. what are the requirements to building this car into drifting?

  17. Lucas Oliveira

    I know what drifting is and it's meant to be fun and you made it too crazy to understand in other words drifting is playing on the thin line of control and chaos

    Hahahahahahah that grin when you first appeared on the screen. THAT is a drift grin.

  19. Jack Allen

    This event has been brought to you by your local tire shop!! LOL>

    For e braking you normally still push in the clutch and pop it once you release the e brake

    What is drifting? It is the worst thing you can do with a car, after burnouts.

  22. Yeeyan Ng

    So much friction on the back tires…wouldn't that pop the back tires very fast?

  23. Ale Sau

    does postivienegative slip angle of front tyres mean that you control or lose your overspin ?

  24. volarecantare

    My car has 140PS and I can disable ASR with a button. Can I drift with it?

  25. Jack Duno

    If I had a nickel for every time I heard boost blow off, I'd be a very rich man

  26. Amazinblasian

    Do a vid on awd drifting or one about wheel alignments and how they effect the car

  27. Peff14

    Thanks for the videos! Could you make one about sprint cars?

  28. Donavon Neighbors

    So anybody notice the 86 that was drifting in there 😉

  29. Andy

    Drifting is basically a severe understeer condition, correct?

  30. Udai Shankar

    Haha awesome footage brother and pretty neat explanation! i used to watch the anime Initial D, which really got me intersted in this drift sport…i ve a question tho do the front tyres specifically need to be toed-in?is it even necessary? and is there any specific threshold speed to perform a perfect drift?
