    Drifting ON THE STREET is for irresponable idiots.

    Do you do it Brad?

    I do it in parking lots... The sentra is the best, it has winter tires on the front and worn down all seasons on the back, so all I have to do is turn in under heavy throttle, lift a bit, the back end starts to come around, then counter steer and plant it and I can hold a nice 45* angle.

    What's wrong with doing 360s on snowy/icy parking lots? The speeds required are ridiculously low (5-15mph), the parkings themselves are usually surrounded by walls of snow, so it's even hard to crash the car, and it also serves as a reminder to get back the feeling how the car behaves in winter. Not to mention it doesn't rip the tires off

    Few skids at 10mph on a parking lot always makes me slow down on the street for the very purpose of NOT doing it with other people around as I remember how easy it is to lose control of the car... Switching from a dry summer road grip is a surprise every fall.
    Then again..it's Canada... :wink:

    Drift is only a desirable effect when you are able to make a corner faster, usually in a loose traction environment. For many examples, go here:

    'Drifting' for the sake of sliding around, and making your car slower so it will have less traction...while breaking everything on the car and killing tires...I'll never get it.

    Pulling the E-brake while sliding around a snowy or icy empty parking lot is great fun and all should do it.

    Trying to "drift" going 60MPH down a gravel road is pure stupidity.

    Trying to "drift" going 60MPH down a gravel road with friends in the car could easily turn into reckless homicide. Don’t be a moron.
