Default Drifting sucks!

I watched all of Inital D and drifting was awesome! Racing down mountain passes sideways on 15 mile courses!

I then watched a pro drift event and they were all just doing 30mph rolling burnouts around the same few turns.

What the ****! How did japanese drifting become something so ******* lame? Same goes for USA street racing! Racing from a dig/roll is fun but what happened to racing down a course with turns????

USA FAIL

cool story bro.

Racing down a course with turns is alive and well. Its called road racing.

Agreed on the d0r1fto part though: its lame as ****.

I had no idea what you were talking about, so I Googled it. Apparently the correct spelling is "d0r1ft0" here in the 'states. Its accompanied by phrases such as "m4d tyte y0" and "sk1llz" and appears to have something to do with "figure skating" and destroying cars and tires.

Just thought I should clear that up for ya

</sarcasm>

**** that, why not do it on the street LIKE INITIAL D? Nice long courses, can be done safely if properly organized. Don't tell me you don't drive fast on public roads with turns.

No amount of organization would keep n00bs like you with 4x more power than skill from putting tunnels through buildings.

You know, I've noticed that people with highly modified cars tend to wreck far less often than people with regular ol' cars.

Had to look up "Initial D." Was not impressed by comparison of motorsports to a Japanese cartoon.

On a related note, found out that Amy Winehouse is dead. So that kind of lifted my spirits a tad.

Dude you should watch it, I actually learned a little bit about how to drive from it.

Besides I am not talking about motorsports, I am talking about motorfuns.

"They tried to make me go to rehab but I said 'no, no, no'"

You should really watch Initial D. It's a cute show.

CNN: Amy Winehouse dead. Illicit drug markets face uncertainty in Britain, sources close to entertainment industry say.

Is drifting as good at being a motor sport as Amy Winehouse was at being sober?

Nooo no no.

I agree that the Americanized stuff is pretty "meh" at times. Not a fan of the crowds...seems like a bunch of hipsters over the past few years. As someone that was "in it" 10 years ago, a lot has changed.


These were the videos I used to watch the **** out of...old, good stuff.

Yah, saw a drifting "Event"... was pretty lame. Insanely fast cars attempting to go sideways into a huge sweeping corner and most of them failing miserably.

American drifting is a spectacle. You can't put drifting on a mountain side and then ship crowds to it. So they put the drifting in a nice little lamed up package where you can see the whole thing from beginning to end from the same lawn chair in front of the jersey barrier at Turn 11 at Road Atlanta.
