    I was talking to my mate about what method he uses to start a drift. He used to use handbrake only but now his new car has a handbrake set up that won't lock the wheels properly which got me to thinking, just what is he going to do now?

    Anyway as for me, I prefer feint drift for 2 reasons. The first is that it's very kind and forgiving on the drive train so no nasty blown t50's or t series. And secondly it's a really easy and simple way of getting the car to kick out. It's gradual so it gives you a lot of time to react and you can use it under pretty much every situation. Just turn away from the corner, turn in and mash it, works every time for me.

    Never really had a car that had an effective handbrake to practice with so that's another reason I prefer this method. But what do you guys prefer?

    scando flick then compression lock is pretty much the only way to get a stock ke70 side ways in the dry i think. high revs in 3rd flick the car then change down 2nd release the clutch at max sidewards G then u will slide and lose heaps of speed. u cant power out cos 4k is shit so its not really drifting.

    For a right hand corner, I'll come up from the outside edge but not all the way over, before the corner starts flick it left so the suspension binds up on the right hand side, then turn in and once the suspension has bound up on the left mash the loud pedal. This should kick the back out nice and slowly rather than kicking it out violently so it's really easy to catch. If you want it to kick out quicker just use a more aggressive turn in or clutch it on the turn in. You need good front end grip to do this but if you find yourself understeering you can go into the corner hot and get on the brakes to help load up the front a bit and get a bit more grip that way. It's really the only way I know how to get a car sideways pre apex into a corner.

    I really need to learn how to use the handbrake and maybe proper clutch kicks too.

    Feint/scando flick, power on power off.
    I hardly ever use the hand brake or clutch, just usually to correct the drift.
    I've found that people in bigger cars use the hand brake more....

    i thought this thread was initiating sexual activities with the opposite sex.
    i am now truely disapointed.
    but it pisses me off when people assume your hooning cos your car is loud, has bald tires, a roll cage, fresh bake and dinted bumpers!!
    Or driving in a wolf pack.
