Re: go me, dont laugh, DRIFTING

you'd have to have power to the wheels to slide.

powerslides happen when you gas a rwd car and the tires kick you out, spinning them, and sliding the car.

you're ass-dragging.
that's it.

you slid, not powerslid.

fwdcarssuck, go home.


also, keep in mind that a small amount of slide in the rear helps rotate a car in tight corners.

but if you want to get you ass chewed, go to the drifting forum.

Here is why your little civic can't drift, I do like civics just not as much as I like the RX7 or S2000.


Basically the laws of physics won't allow it. See with a rear wheel drive car power is coming from the back so that basically means that you can slide the tail out and control the movement by countering with the front wheels. With a front wheel drive both the power and countering wheels are up front so it eliminates the possibilty of drifting grouped turns. A demonstration would be taking a rwd car and finding an open parking lot. Get up to a good speed and then just yank the steering wheel back and forth and you will start fishtailing. This can not be done with a ff and and drifitng is almost like fishtailing around turns. Of course this doesn't mean that you can't take your ff and throw it around turns because you can. Dave of Slide Squad does it pretty successfully with his Civic but the fact of the matter is that it's not drifting. A term that has become pretty popularized from the Velocity BBS is ass dragging.
