Default I Drifted!

ok, i was getting ready to get on the freeway on ramp. It was about 11:30, and there are no cars around, so i decide to floor it as im going up the on ramp and my rear end starts to get loose and im still on the gas pretty good and im counter steering, not much though, just enough to make a cool awd drift.

I think i have a good drifting setup. Tires are dunlop sp sport w-10. at bout 50% tread. with a whiteline adjustable swaybar set at 24mm.

I didnt think my car could get sideways on dry pavement. WHO NEEDS RAIN!

Yeah, I did this the other day while pushing the envelope in the San Bruno mountains. It just sorta developed from a fast turn into a gradual scrub.

In reality, its not something I look for. I, and I would bet you as well, have not been in wipeout situations enough to know how to handle our cars when we've gotten to the edge of the slip angle. Be careful man... while street tires are for more forgiving, if you're not used to the breaking point you could end up like some others here on BAIC.

Feels good though, huh?
