  2. Keiichi Tsuchiya once proved that drifting is faster! I have it in my AE86 drift bible DVD <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/cool.gif"></A>
     
  3. I reckon with a wider track the grip driver would get past.
     
  4. The "grip" guy had to lift the throttle so many times to avoid hitting the drift guy who was taking up most of the track.
     
  5. yeah that's what i was getting at
     
  6. Looks like a regular forza race.

    Douchebags in high powered cars sliding all over the track then powering their way down the straights.
     
  7. haha for real
     
  8. Anyone who thinks that drifting is the fastest way round the track is eiher a kid or still has the brain of a kid
     
  9. well on a high grip surface (tarmac for example) thats right, but once you factor in lower grip surfaces like dirt, gravel etc, both skill sets become important for fast times.

    for pure track driving drifting skills are useful for accident avoidance, recovery past the grip threshold(when a slight slip angle turns into a full slide) and confidence and calmness when pushing 10/10 or close to the limit. i personally think its an important part of car control for any serious driver.
     
  10. Yeah I agree, but still this video is a stupid comparison in the first place. I don't think drifting is anything as radical as it's made out to be, it's glorified car control that has just evolved into a global sport. It's not AS different from driving/racing as they make it out to be
     
  11. its not that different but its more action packed for the average viewer. real racing is great to enthusiasts but for general entertainment it doesnt have the wow factor of drifting. its more entertainment than a sport but it sells.

    this is a proper video for you.
     
  13. as soon as the drift driver has to go in for tires and fuel, grip driver will just wave and start putting up proper lap times
     
  14. PMSL annoyingly true!
     
  15. TALK TO ME
