RS,

Yup, it's the same one that circulated in the MLR a few months ago.

Guys,

this was actually GOOD driving on substandard equipment. the Evo VII was equipped with truck tires to make it drift at low speed, and was driven by a racing instructor. they did get a tire blowout which caused teh accident.

No. It should be changed to,"Why drifting is stupid."..... ::)

I just cant understand the logic of putting cheap truck tires on a car to make it drift....its just plain stupidity...

Was reading an article on rallying. According to the rally guys, AWD rally cars have an optimum slip angle depending (drift) on surface and speed. As the speed through the corners increases, the slip angle decreases. And as the surface gets grippier / stickier, the slip angle also decreases. This is applicable even on tarmac.

Makes sense since you are able to carry more speed through the slow corners if you drift the car rather than brake and floor it again.

wrc drivers do it in the dirt and theres a valid reason why they do it. heck they dont even call it drifting.  its totally different from the kind of drifting that pokemon, digimon and yugioh drivers do on dry pavement..... ::)

hey boys,
youre putting bull manure in the horse's mouth again. scroll up and see if i said any of those. youre putting my statements out of context again.
all im saying is rallying is different from "drifting". theres a reason why they "slide" in the dirt.
as for the japanese, theyre the only ones all into it plus the japanese import crowd ( i did not want to use ricer in that sentence for fear of hurting anybodys feelings) so crediblity, of drifting that is, in most sanctioning motorsport clubs is close to nonexistent. Im referring to the US setting, btw.
you guys watch too many japanese videos. you know, theres more to motorsports than those guys with bad teeth and funny looking hairdos. maybe its a culture thing....who knows????

hahaha this is very interesting! we all have our own opinions and own school of thought. the more you know the more you understand. as for my opinion...
a "master" driver can do anything at will--- be it circuit, rally, oval, dirt, etc.

circuit-- drifting will make a slower time. you are scrubbing off speed. when you start sliding you are already losing time. karters know this 1st hand. but i believe drifting can be used as an emergency line--lets say coming into the corner too hot.

rally-- they wouldnt four-wheel slide if it would not equate to faster time. i know that if you slide on dirt, ice, etc its faster however i am not sure why they drift even on road/asphlat courses.... maybe the road is uneven? slippier/ ill have to research more.

I dont know I guess its just plain ignorance to think badly about drifting and just single out the Japanese or Ricers for doing this.  First of all I trully believe the guy was just having fun with the car, and not trying to get a quick time.  If I was just testing out a car and just palying with it or just testing its limits I would do anything with in in the track.  I dont do drifting but I have respect for the people who do and I'm not the only one who does.  The are professionals with what they do and I'm sure that before they did drifting they have mastered evry aspect or driving  Ask any true car enthusiast/professional drive they would say the same thing...why?  because they do it too.

and here i thought that the whole point in drifting in a racing situation is employed so that you can enter a corner at a speed that is higher than what your entry would be on a grip line.  of course you will lose speed when scrubbing but the point i think is that you can still have a faster exit if you have a fast enough entry speed.

try playing colin mcrae rally on the pc and see why drifting on the tarmac can help with rally cars.  i think it's with the way the cars are set up as well.
