|Post subject:||Techniques from Drift Session|
I found a good resource with steps on how to do different types of drifting. Obviously without visual supplementation on all techniques it's not perfect, but most of it [if not all] is covered in the drift bible.
These are the covered techniques, and on the main site you can click on the topic and get the stepwise info:
Heel Toe Shifting
Learn proper race shifting to get your car into the right gear for drifting. Includes double clutch shifting.
This performed when entering a corner and using full throttle to produce heavy oversteerÂ through the turn. You need horsepower to make this happen.
This technique is very basic, pull the E-Brake or side brake to induce rear traction loss and balance drift through steering and throttle play. This can also be used to correct errors or fine tune drift angles. Main drift technique used in FWD vehicles.
This is performed by depressing the clutch pedal on approach or during a mild drift,Â then the clutch is "popped" to give a sudden jolt through the driveline to upset rear traction. Â
Shift Lock Drift
This is performed by letting the revs drop on downshift into a corner and then releasing the clutch to put stress on the driveline to slow the rear tires inducing over steer. This is like pulling the E-brake through a turn,Â but this should be performed on wet ground to minimize damage to the driveline. Â
Dirt Drop Drift
This is performed by dropping the rear tires off the road into the dirt to maintain or gain drift angle without losing power or speed and to set up for the next turn. This technique is very useful for low horsepower cars. Do not attempt this technique at the Drift Session.
This is performed by rocking the car towards the outside of a turn and then using the rebound of grip to throw the car into the normal cornering direction. This is heavy rally racing technique used to change vehicle attitudes during cornering.
In this technique the rear tire on the inside of a turn or apex is bounced over a curb to lose traction resulting in over steer. Do not attempt this technique at the Drift Session.
This is performed by trail braking into a corner. Loss of grip is obtained and then balanced through steering and throttle motions. This is mainly for medium to low speed corners.
This is performed at race speeds. When entering a high speed corner a driver lifts his foot off the throttle to induce a mild oversteer and then balances the drift through steering and throttle motions. The car that is being used for this style of drift should be a neutral balanced car therefore the oversteer will induce itself. If the car plows through any turn this technique will not work.
Long Slide Drift
This is done by pulling the E-brake through a strait to start a high angel drift and to hold this to set up for the turn ahead. This technique can only be done at high speed.
Swaying Drift (Choku-Dori)Â
This is a slow side-to-side faint like drift where the rear end sways back and forth down a strait.
