so do you ever go to work, or do you just drift all week?
<edit>just watched the video, that's awesome. you must go through tires like under britches.
Oh i work. But play on the weekends! Tires, it depends. I was running on 2.5 year old Azenis on the rear for like 4 of my first runs, had uber amounts of rear traction but when i got it just right i had smoke all the way up to my a-pillar in mid drift! And i have lots and lots of friends that hook it up with tires b/c they know they will go to good use.
more speed gives you the ability to hold a much longer drift at a more crazy angle, as well as earlier entry points at crazier angles.
for example, at the last part, if he was going faster, he could have connected the huge "J" turn at that end, if it was part of the course?
anyway great vid, keep it up
your right but wrong. I needed more speed at that tight J turn but also needed to have a sufficient e-brake to hold the angle. b/c that tightens up a lot at the end. E-brake= angle instantianly. Speed does not =angle.
What does more angle have to do with him being able to connect the j turn??
It's kinda moot, because we've already discussed that he's finding himself at opposite lock at some not so good angles.
In any case, speed does not equal angle. More often the faster cars are holding shallower angles. Having the momentum to carry through at a good angle does help come from speed, but they aren't the same.
rappadan, yea, i probably would have a better idea of the track if i was actually at the track, or if i knew the set course you were following
MX_eva yea i realized that after i watch it a second time. Maybe i should have reworded my statement. but, its not in the matter on what car is faster, its on entry speed. cars with lower power need to enter at a high rate of speed in order to do those amazing drifts, but since the car enters at such a high speed, the car must start earlier. In competitions, is not about speed entirely, but the angle you take and the style, as well as entry points; Speed tops it off. Without speed, you cant enter the drift early, and leave a lot "going straight" as you approach the corner. Too much though, and... well, you know what happens. thats why japanese drifters are "giri giri" with their drifting.
i say, its easier to explain with a real situation than in words. body reactions understand what to do next.
Haha, Dan I don't expect you'll get much support for your dragon vinyl. The car is pretty ***** besides that. I'm pretty sure he initially did it just as a joke, or something because his friends payed for it?? Anyway, I think Dan only keeps it on there to set himself different.
If any of you all saw the vinyl you would crap your pants, its over 5 layers thick. Its bad ***. Drifting is all about style and having that on the car makes me stand out. Ask anyone in my area. This ***** bananas!
