The real hard part I found was learning how to use the foward momentum with the front wheels to pull the back out from over drifting or loosing the drift all together from too much pull. Useful too on wost case scenario when you have to do the revearse ie push the rearward momentum with the front wheels if your heading for a wall after the rear has gone away on.
318 use the car's weight to drift since my H.P. is sevearly limited (should be the same for an open auto).

Thanks again

Hey everybody , thank you once again for all your tips and videos. This will give me a grasp of what to do, and what not to do haha. Today I got some practice sliding the rear end out and trying to make my steering corrections smooth and not snappy. Like you guys said ...Practice! I've had the car for a while so I have done that before but it was quite sloppy. The only thing I hadn't tried was full out drifting. I think this is the only time I've actually wanted it to snow...haha.

Try this as well....... instead of mashing the gas during your turn in to kick the rear end out try left foot braking. The brakes doesn't require that much pressure so pratice in a straight line first. Once you get the feel with the left foot then you can try this. During your turn in, maintain a little bit of gas and then brake with your left foot until the rear end kicks out. Now counter steer to hold the slide and control the drift angle with the gas. Let go of the brakes once to start the slide.
