Hey guys, what are some tips for drifting in Carbon. I mean, not in drift races. Drifting in drift races is too easy. How do you drift in sprints and stuff good. Preferably in muscle cars.

Got it yesturday, now 88% done career, and I found that if you mess witht he parts you buy a bit, get drift tires, oversteer in your suspension, and you drift great!

Although there aren't enough Porsches, I was looking forward to a Porsche 911 Turbo S :(....

oh, right. drift, not draft..........

yes, you can drift in carbon, just tab Space when you go into conors and you should drift nicely out of the conor. helps with a musle car instead of a tuner.

They don't have that either T_T

And yea, my drifting is getting very good :)

Haven't driven many Muscle cars, as I chose to use Tuners which are quite hard to drift with since they have a hell of a lot better grip than Muscles but I suppose using the handbrake helps alot. Why would you wanna drift in an ordinary race anyway? I've tried with the few muscle cars I used and it wasn't as efficient as simply braking and accelerating out of the corner for me. Then again, I haven't really mastered powersliding with a fat muscle car yet so I might not be in position to pick on it.

drifting in normal races with traffic is risky, you don't know if you are going to hit a car comming around conor or not. it's better to stay in full control by bracking before conor

gotta love tourqe mixed with rear wheel drive.. it takes a couple races before u get the hang of it but power sliding in races isnt that hard.. ive gotten to the point i can drift in between traffic its more chalenging and just plain more fun than simply slowing down.. and im not a fan of brakes:rolleyes5

I tried to drift with my Camaro that I have, it wasn't bad, but occasionally I get carried away, and yeah, crash and screwed over.

But in drift races, the drifting is sooooooo unrealistic, but I love it!

played a lot of races with mussle cars, the camero is a good drifter, as long as you don't fishtail, you should be able to do conors faster than tuners :P (but Exotics are always the best)

If you do a slight powerslide at the beginning of the drift area, you will get a "perfect entry" and a x2

are you nuts, the tuners are meant for the drifting field. Sit in a Skyline fully tuned and you'll see what I mean!

Actually in carbon muscles are best because they slide so much.

You feel like you have more control in a tuner. True, the muscles do slide alot, but that increases your chances of hitting the wall.

exotics > 3 muscles > 3 Tuners

Use muscles if you want to conquer Drifts easily. But anyways, they're already easy as hell..

lol yea using a muscle is easy for drfiting...i tried with a Lotus and a Evo and it didnt work out so well...even with drift tires:D

i use grip tires all the time.

the next time I get a chance to run carbon, i'll make a decent free roam drifting video with the charger.

Am I the only who thinks drifting is difficult?

I hate the drifting physics. The damn car slides way too much and I hit walls frequently. I can't win on the track "City Courthouse". By the way, I'm using a PS2.

when you get sliding and you are going towards wall let go of gas for a sec than push it again....it helps me from hitting the wall

Killua, if you think you're going to hit the wall then accelerate a bit more and turn your car away from the wall as much as you don't slip or spin.

negative, slow down., you may lose a bit in your drift, but it will pull away from the wall.

also a note about canyon drifting, you can have your tail sliding over the edge through the gates, (and if you're lucky, you wont be called on hitting the wall)

That always happened to me at the beginning, but whenever I tried it with the T2 and T3 cars it didn't work.

with the charger i was half hanging on.. just practice, if you crash, so what?. start over.

apart from letting go of the gas, you could also press Nitros Oxide, which is not as effective as letting go of the gas, but it does usually stops you from hitting the wall

I do that, but it only results in me drifting more towards the wall than getting away.

I finally beat that damn track, thanks to the accelerating technique.

Thank you people.
