    Whoa... Leme dechiper what you wrote.

    Im guessing you have a RS4... Pro... 3? You have a... 12 Turn motor? 19?

    Anyway... with out having to much detail, i think your just used to rubber tyres. PVC is very slick and has little grip. And with a lower turn motor, its going to have even less grip. Whats going on is your entering your drift, getting it sideways, then giving throttle, thus elminating all of its grip, making it spin out. After entering a drift, dont mash the thorttle, just give it enough to keep the tyres spinning. And countersteer as needed. Try that and let us know how that works for you.
