A great drifting experience for anyone!
In the early days of race car driving when the tires did not have the kind of grip that they do now, a drifting experience was nothing new. Sometimes, the car would spin out of control while at other times the driver would recover and go on driving. The quality of tires has improved so much today, that it is quite thrilling for a driver to drift without losing control of the car. Being able to drift a car is indeed an acquired skill!
The best drifting experience days
Recently drifting has become a sport in its own right. With its origin in the winding mountains of Japan, the passion of a drifting has now spilt on to other countries as well. While a simple drifting experience can have a car turning and moving sideways through a turn, it can actually be much more complex than that.
Professional drivers can manage a drifting experience that makes their car go through several turns without the tires touching the ground. It needs great skill and practise to accomplish that but the thrill of the experience is enough to make the drivers keep coming back to the track for more of this experience.
While looking for a good drifting car, you need to look for a car that is a rear wheel drive. As a novice, a person could try out a lightweight and relatively less costly car as there are high possibilities that the car would take some beating on the track!
Try a car that has good horsepower and a relatively light flywheel making it easier for the engine to rev up. Popular cars include the Toyota Corolla, the Nissan Silvia, 200sx, s13, s14 and the Nissan Skyline, anything rear wheel drive can do though, even an old BMW.
The best place to try out a drifting experience is on a track with instruction from pro drifters. The twists and turns test the skills of the driver. Basically drivers use the clutch and braking techniques to master the technique of drifting. Using the clutch techniques, the driver pushes the clutch near a turn and shifts to second gear.
Then the driver revs up the engine and releases the clutch, causing the back end of the car to swing in a turn. Using the braking technique, the driver pulls the hand brake while approaching a turn and this causes the rear end to swing.
Once you have started out on a drifting experience, the exciting part begins and that is to hold the drift instead of letting the car spin out of control and this comes with practice. Drifting is extremely addictive and also relatively cheap too!
An experienced drifter can manage to hold a drift through numerous turns in a row, trying out one technique after another to maintain the level and speed of the drift. If you are looking for a great drifting experience, this is the right time to practise and go for it!
