I've been sideways at 100+, not by choice. You have some serious ***** to initiate at 80+.

LOF'nL= laughing out ******* loud?

I hydroplaned at 80 once, slide a SUV down a 3 lane highway sideways doing 60 once before spinning it around the rest of the way so i was sliding backwards, both of those made my ***** un-drop. Sideways at 80 would be awesome if I felt in control. I would need some serious ride along time though.

Riding in my buddies 1987 GMC Jimmy 2 door following a group of sports cars at high speed around 100mph. The truck had an 87 IROC L98 Small block and got around really really well... The car in front of us was an M3 that we were following behind about 200 feet back suddenly swerved to the left lane, at the last possible second we saw what he swerved to miss. Breaking off to the right, we ended up going sideways about 400 feet to barely miss slamming into a pickup truck that was going around 40mph with no exterior lighting on it. I've never been so scared in my life and literally almost **** my pants... I know how you feel!!

well god damn... I'm too scared of being paralyzed to try that. You must have far more experience than I currently (or will ever) have.

You need to visit my track, we got a great long sweeping 4th gear into 3rd decreasing radius double apex that's alot of fun to drift.

BenR, that is AZ?
Let me know when there are events. I will travel there someday..

I use a ATS 2 way Diff from a RX7 in my NB housing. I used to use a torsen but I dont think it would last much like this and I like the 2 way a bit better for drift. Def not for autox or grip though.

Nope, this is in New Mexico. We have a 1.6 mile roadcourse with two ovals that feed into eachother. The big oval is roughly the size of irwindale with nowhere near the banking. The road course is 36 feet wide and the oval is about 70 feet wide.




There are drift drift events about every month, grip stuff about twice a month, but you can always do private rentals on the whole facility for really cheap.
