Note to E30 drifters with M20s

If you are constantly redlining your car, you suck. Learn to drive your car. Thats all.

rubbish, all my rockers ever say is "BEEF CAKE" and stare down the rev limiter :lol: but yeah if you're doing it right you shouldn't just be sitting on the rev limited lol... if you don't have the throttle control to sustain rpm mid drift and just have to floor your car while sideways, just change gears and floor it some more as you change directions,then when you run out of awesome stock m20 wheelspinning power bring it back down some. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Back and forth, back and forth, over and over and over. Eventually you'll have huffed enough fumes and tire smoke that even if you haven't gotten better at it you'll think you're doing great :D I also strongly recommend getting a video camera so you can watch from the outside of the car and recognize when you could have done different things to prevent understeer or when you applied too much counter steer, etc etc.

I've really only "drifted" once or twice and that was with my P.O.S. 325i I had. it was quite scary but freaking awesome. It was scary because I was waiting for something to break!! Went around in a big circle 3-4 times but I found it was quite easy to keep it going sideways. I can't remember if I was bouncing it off redline but I don't think it was. Now I got a ix and cant do that any more.... :( I do want to get better at drifting though.

here's what is looked like....

bought it for 700 buck and I beat the piss out of it. It's still alive too, my mechanic has it!

is it more difficult to drift a AWD??? I never tried to get this car sideways....I guess it could pull it off. Prolly want to do some mods like lengthend front driveshaft and stuff.

As you can tell, I am quite the noobie when it comes to drifting... :cry:

I drifted my fiance's subie in the snow the other day. Not that bad but I wouldn't want to do it in the dry lol.

I drift my auto from time to time on accident. So much fun :)

I am a master at drifting in the snow! Love doing that! I'd imagine it would be much more difficult on dry pavement though....

only diff is that things happen faster on dry roads. You have to have conviction when doing it. None of this "I dunno... I won't go all out" BS. Commit to the drift and it will commit to you.
