Me and Mike ran into each other as I was heading to do some snow runs, so he came along and joined the fun! Thanks to Jeff (crusher) for the hosting service, his deals are great. Filiming done by my personal cameraman, Lester (JiGGa).

Nice*th-up*
I can't help feeling sorry for the poor guy behind the camera. He's the only one not having any fun:D

Actually I was playing around in a parking lot last night and I was able to make my FWD Volvo lose control (or kicking the tail out) without yanking the handbrake. But even when I yanked on the handbrake once, I was able to keep the car drifting side to side and end off in a wide drift without further need for handbrake. I haven't gotten it down 100%, but it took some throttle modulation, steering input and space :D

But definitely it's still not as fun as with the Bimmer where it's more fun toying around in the snow with a RWD.

By the way, nice video that your buddy Lester put together Mystikal. I like how you guys were drifting inbetween the pilons

*th-up*

LOL, there's an outakes edition to this video. koncise filmed that part, first there was Lester, sitting in the trunk, playing garbage man as we picked up the cones one by one (that was classic). Then we proceeded to do some high speed drifts with him in the same position, hands in the air. Trust me, he got the most fun out of the day. :D

Yeah, I know what you are saying with the FWD drifting. It's possible, just not quite as entertaining. My friend and I were out on Wednesday at the same lot, doing runs in my car and his Maxima. They looked really good, especially considering how much extra work it takes.

Yeah, I thought the pylon idea was cool, and I had them sitting in my garage so I said why not. Keep in mind also that every video I post is taken in the crappy Quicktime movie mode of my 2.0MP camera, with a 15 sec limit on video. To make and edit something like this is NOT fun. I have to sort through dozens of clips for like 3 mins of footage. At least Jon pointed me towards Premiere for editing, made work a lot easier than the crap I previously used.

We worked on another video last night, but the lot was pretty dark and it shows in the clips. I think I still might make a full movie out of it though, we'll see.
