    for me, never really got into the whole drift thing.
    I personally enjoy grip more.

    ive always driven mountain passes. i drift when its faster and grip when its faster. i dont just stick to one or the other unless my brakes fail and have no choice but to drift the whole time (only happened once)

    my mates have always been into track grip and hill climbs. theyre trying to get out of it now. spending 4k+ a week on a car seems like a major waste. one of them is trying to sell his r32 gtr with r34 rb26dett engine for 25k and he just sold his 2 door sti with 2.5L engine for about 30k. both had spare suspension setups for hills and track. thats absolutely nothing compared to how much they put into those cars.

    youll notice people in motorsport will go in and out of things. time and money usually the major contributing factors.

    my oppinoin is drift is a bit of a 'fun' motorsport...and grip seems a bit more serious and technical i guess, not saying drift isnt technical as it sure requres alot of skill thats for sure...

    i think i like grip atm more cause my 4k is to slow to drift! but i do intend on having a bit of a go of this drifting when the 4age is in.

    and pluss its a bit safer driving around on the streets in a "grip" fashion, than trying to perfect that 3rd gear skandinavian flick as you exit the 3rd exit on the round about....(Wonder if thats possible...)

    What Grinds My Gears:

    Grip. Ever since NFS Pro Street came out, all the sick-toons and hektik mob are calling normal track and road racing "grip" to try and differentiate it from "drift". Notice how there was never the need for this distinction before NFS PS came along, even when drift came around. it was just normal "racing", or even just "driving".
    I agree with this comment.

    but theres different classes in grip. in drift you can still go ok if you havent spent a shitload on your car. in grip i dont think a 4age ae86 is gonna keep up very well with 400hp+ evos and gtrs.

    if you take a drift car to our local hill climbs they would laugh at you because its not awd. they would laugh at you even more if you said it wasnt turbo
