Smile learn how to drift

a drift is started by breaking the rear tires loss in a controlled manner in a corner. there are several ways to do this , and all work because of weight transfer. an understanding of the effects of weight transfer under braking, insted of spin out, and when it will cross the line from drift to spin. fast reactions by the driver and high level of driving skills are also necessary- drifting is not a beginner's technique.

in an all-wheel-drive car, a drift may be initiated by sharply turning thesteering wheel into the corner, and then accelerating and decreasing the steering a certain amount. you'd whant to do this after the turn-in process is comleted, just befor the apex, while setting up for the corner exit. the car is still decelerating, so weight is shifted forwerd, giving the front tires increased traction. when the steering wheel is turned sharply but in a controlled manner, thr front wheels pull the car forword in the direction in which they are pointed. the rear wheels develop an increaced slip angle and swing wide. acceleration at this point transfer weight back to ward the rear wheels, increasing their tractive abilit as in the rear-drive car above. coordinated use of the throttle and steering wheel keeps the car pointed in the desired direction, as with a rea-drive car.

Default learn how to drift

if you can shift weight rearwards faster than the tail goes out in oversteer, you can control an oversteer slide. this will work if the oversteer iis caused by the car's suspension design. some highly skilled racinging drivers perfer a car that oversteers at its limit because of this. the car will need rear-wheel drive and plenty of power in order for this technique to work. for most cars and most drivers, this may be a more theoretical than a useful technique. if the car is already in a power oversteer slide, weight is already transferd to the rear and the power throgh the rear wheels is overpowering their lateral traction. more power at that point is not what is needed.
