drift techniques

i am a full on drifter!! over time i've realized that drifting with a rc car is jus like a full-size car. its more technique than set up. sure a high torque motor n' sum slickz help, but if u know how 2 work with any set up then ur a tru racer. i wana learn even more techniques. please send in ur drift tipz.

here r sum drift techniques 4 ppl who wana drift like crazy!

-my favorite: power slip:
have car set on full steering range. aproach turn @ half throttle, slightly turn away from corner, then sharp turn into the corner and gun it, if the car is properly manuevered the back end should brake loose, then its just keeping it in slide. when in slide make slight steering corrections to keep the car in perfect slide.

-brake lock: aprouch turn full speed, then lock the brakes for a second to get the car loose, then give it as much throttle as u want(the more throttle the farther it will slide).

fient: a few feat before the turn tap the brake and turn away from the turn so that you start a drift away from the corner, then jerk the steering wheel towards the turn and gun it. when done properly the rear tires slide throw 2 drifts in oppisite dirrections. takes alot of practice not to spin out(overspin).

-i know a few more techniques, i would like 2 hear ur drift, or just general racing techniques.

my technique (i have no clue if it has a name ill just tell you what i do)
I also use tape for my drifting.

I got at it at about half throttle and just gun it at the last second then give the wheel about a half twist (not sharp turn) then just adjust throttle as needed. Stupid technique but for me practice makes perfect and so far im got it down.

You turn to the out side of the corner just at first and then turn hard into the corner w/o breaking front traction, (if you do break front traction you can understeer) This will cause the weight to shift outwards and make the car break traction and go sideways.

Here in Ireland we refer to that as "flooring it"...

Hey turbo, whats the difference between #1 and #3? the both sound like a Finnish Feint to me...

the setup i have is:
-rsx(rwd)
-stage 1 drift motor
-hard slicks
-stiff springs(blue)
-lightened by taking off un-nedded chassis parts
-i also shifted the weight towards the front so the front grips and the back slides easyer.

Tsuchiya.


And in response to a previous thread, an Inertia drift is something different.

In a feint drift, the driver uses the motion to initiate a drift, after a straightaway.

An inertia drift involves coming out of a drift and transfering the inertial force of the drift into iniating another drift around a second corner, all without regaining traction.
