Default D-r-i-f-t-i-n-g is a banned word. What do we call it now?

So now we have the D word banned. What should we call it instead!

My quick suggestions.

Asphalt skating.

Road dancing.

Tire wasting.

There's gotta be better. It'd be great to have a concensus on what to call it. Turd Sandwich or Giant Douche.

Well, on the bunny slopes - in order to slow down they usually just......
"Snowplow"
I don't know....but *******g in a Miata is pretty difficult to begin with.
Not my gig, but kudos to 'em none the less.

The act of deliberately sliding a car under power, for the purposes of exhibition, shall be known hereafter as buttsex.

You guys ever see someone slide or ride around in a Miata with good driver behind the wheel like Jeff A or Rob? I don't think you'd be responding in this thread. A lot of these "turd sandwiches" could probably school most of you on a track. If you guys thinks it's easy, or takes no talent to slide a miata around, you need to think again.

Go to a legit drift event with great drivers and ride along, you will figure out why. It's a giant rush, and it's the most challenging thing I've ever done.

If Mario Andretti took up d r i f t i n g it would still be as gay. The fact that it takes talent and skill makes it all the more retarded. "It might not be the fast way around the track but it looks cool" should not be the motto of any motor sport.

Haha, you watch way to many movies. That's not what it's about at all, have you ever been to a real drift event at a track? I think you have no clue what you're talking about.

Haven't really done much, have you? Driving a rental kart around a concrete track is much more fun and challenging than burning up tires "lookin cool".

Yes, I have, and dr!fting is by far the most fun I've ever had with anytype of motorsport. Before you start trashing it, I would suggest you come take a ride, it might change the way you think.
