    Have you ever drifted into a corner and lost it to early? Well... Some of you might want to get on the gas to try to keep it going, this will NOT work it could send you out of the drift.What you want to do is you want to tap it fast at half, This will get you back into the drift and you can stay on the gas :)


    Happy Drifting!

    good advice nick also if you have trouble breaking it loose or want to be even more sideways try to turn opposite direction and snap it into the corner but you must be ready to counter lock it if you want to slide and not loop out

    Thanks for the tips. Usually in my car (petrol/nitro) i just go in a straight line slowly and then give it all its got and lock the steering and that usually gets me into the drifting for a bit. But it never lasts long...I will try your techniques

    Brake Drift

    If you're hammering into a corner too hard and find yourself running out of road to set up the Drift, jam the brakes on, turn it into the corner and turn the power back on

    The back end will Drift round nicely to set up a controlled Drift

    This works because ABS/PVC tyres have near zero traction so jamming the brakes on doesn't result in a spinout
