Kansei Drift

Kansei Drift is performed at race speeds when, upon entering a high speed corner, a driver lifts his foot off the throttle to induce a mild over steer and then balances the drift through steering and throttle motions. Note that the car used for this style of drift should be a neutral balanced car so that […]

Braking Drift

Braking drift is performed by late-braking hard into a corner,  which weights the front wheels, and lightens the rears. As the driver steers the car into the corner, while still on the brakes, the car will pivot on the front tires due to the weight unbalance. The resulting loss of grip to the rear tires is […]

Feint Drift

Feint Drift or weight tranfser is performed by rocking the car towards the outside of a turn and then using the rebound of grip to throw the car into the normal cornering direction. This is a rally racing technique used to change vehicle attitudes (weight transfer) during cornering, mainly on tight mountain corners.

Shift Lock

Shift Lock 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 an over steer. This is similar to pulling the E-brake through a turn and should be performed on wet surfaces to minimize damage to the […]

E-Brake Drift

E-Brake Drift is a very basic technique in which the driver pulls the E-Brake (emergency-brake) to induce rear traction loss and balances the drift through steering and throttle play. Note that this can also be used to correct errors or fine tune drift angles.
