Drifting Techniques


 
Heel Toe Shifting
 Learn proper race shifting to get your car into the right gear for drifting. Section 

 also includes double clutch shifting so you can downshift before drifting without 

 blowing out your transmission too quickly.

  

 Power Over Drift
 A throttle induced drift, this is performed when entering a corner and using the 

 accelerator to slip the rear wheels, producing heavy oversteer  through the turn. 

 You will often need lots of horsepower to make this happen.  

 E-Brake Drift 
 This drifting 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, however since it does decrease speeds, e-brake drifting is looked 

 down upon during solo (tansou) type drifting competition.

 

 Clutch Kick Drift 
 This drifting technique is performed by depressing the clutch pedal on approach 

 or during turn in to a corner. The clutch is "popped" to give a sudden jolt through 

 the driveline to upset rear traction, causing the power wheels to slip. Drifting is 

 maintained by balancing the throttle.  

 

 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,  but this should be 

 performed on wet ground to minimize damage to the driveline. Similar drifting 

 technique to Clutch Kicking. 

 

 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.

 

 Feint Drift
 This is performed by rocking the car towards the outside of a turn and then using 

 the rebound of the vehicle's suspension to throw the car into the normal 

 cornering direction. This is heavy rally racing technique used to change vehicle 

 attitudes during cornering.  

 Jump Drift
  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.

 

 Braking Drift
  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.

 

 Kansei Drift (Inertia Drift)
 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 (Manji Drift) 
 This is a slow side-to-side faint like drift where the rear end sways back and forth 

 down a strait.
