Drifting At Its Finest

http://www.break.com/index/drifting.html

In my mind, "drifting" is a very UNPRONOUNCED balanced sliding of all four tires on the edge of traction. Anything after that your going slow and look like an a**hole at the track. I'll be the first to admit that hanging the ass end out on any rear drive car puts a smile on my face. I grew up on dirt roads where we all drove trucks. Sliding around a dirt field at full opposite lock will make you laugh like a 9yr old school girl, but watching this video makes me fuc*ing cringe.

I love going fast at the track, and I think sliding around a big ass parking lot would be a riot, but look at the bottom feeders that drive at these events. I wouldn't even want to be on the sidelines watching. Imagine if that thing would have straightened out and gone into the crowd.

Thats not drifting that is showboating.. about as much of a "sport" as a burnout competition..

japanese drifting the professional stuff done on the race track is pretty impressive.. but as people listed.. it is more of a ballet event showing extreme control in what looks like an out of control move.. impressive to watch.

I agree whole-heartedly. I've seen some videos of "real" drift competitions. Amazing stuff. Looks like they're skating on ice at times.
