Extraodinary ways to drift...proven by me...


Remember that this method won't damage your tyre unless you do it on a sunny day...

Conditions:

1. Raining day or rain had stopped and the
road still wet.(no need chg to tayar
botak).

2. Load ur ride or car wif a lot of things
(the heavier the better)(Inersia is the
main key to drift).

3. Able to respond to diff car movement.

1st- take a sharp corner when road
still wet, turn into the corner
immediately(turn suddenly).

2nd- The car will loose control easily.

3rd- when car goin to spin, don let it
spin..how? by turnin the opposite
way(make ur car sway left n right)

I just tried this at a 360 degree corner heading to Uniten from Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP) and it worked out (actually i entered that corner at 5th gear(forgot to change to low gear before turning)-thats why it skidded)...remember ppl..safety first!
If u r not sure don't do it..
Good luck! hope u ppl get some tips that
seldom ppl give...

When did i start?

Well....when did i start? The first thought thats goin on ur mind will be "What did he start?"..am i right?..haha..should be..actually what i'm gonna tell now is when did i start to think about DRIFT?...well..the story goes like this...

It was near the middle of my Form 5 life near the mid-term of my schooling year that time..around June when me n my bro got our car driving license..hmm..should be "hurray!"...then the climax started...my loving dad bought a second-hand Daihatsu Charade for my bro just after we got the license..whoa! thats wonderful...not yet drive got car already so fast..and of course my bro a.k.a Arul was happy...and thoughts was going in my mind..."When do i get mine?"...then suddenly my dad again bought a second-hand Nissan Sunny 130Y but the engine is powered by electronic ignition..whoa! from that moment i thought this gonna be my car..but luck was not at my side as my dad took that car..and what he did was...he gave me a second-hand Datsun 120Y that he was using since he bought it 1 or 2 years ago.

So, i started to think about this DRIFT that i was not familiar at that time...since i was a freak in IT stuff like internet, so i went to search about that sport and learned about it. Almost every night i was dreaming about this sport that was like a dream sport for me. Then one day i found out that the only car that can Drift is all FR cars. What do i mean by FR is Front Mounted Engine Real Wheel Drive car...the engine is mounted at the front of the car and only the rear tyre spins when you press the fuel pedal because it is rear wheel drive. That was a big advantage for me as a sudden jump as i discovered that my car a.k.a the Datsun 120Y is the only car in my house to meet the standard..my car is a FR car..since the other two cars (Nissan Sunny 130Y and the Daihatsu Charade) is FF cars that is Front Mounted Engine Front Wheel Drive car...huhu..i was damn happy at that time since i can Drift when i up to the standard.



Since then the Datsun 120Y that was under-estimated by me turned to be a spectacular machine for me. I never forget to take care of the car until i came to "Uniten". It was damn hard for me to maintain it because of money problem that had to be spent on studies and unavailable time because of hectic time table for classes. Thats the story of how i got into knowing and being some kind of crazy of this sport...Now, my car drifts and skids on the road even when i don't really drift..haha..the car's light weight making it to drift whenever i enter a sharp corner in high speed and of course you must know how to control oversteer and understeer...

Anyway...for those my Uniten friends out there who is viewing this blog, i hope you all understand the story behind me that lead me into this DRIFT thing..haha..thanks for viewing anyway...
