Yes! And this is exactly what this thread is about. You live and learn not to try drifting with an open diff at 3:30am on the last turn to your house. I hit the tree avoiding the car right beside it... Officers gave me a break because I didn't hit anything else. I coulda been charged with a lot of shit and I got away scott free thankfully

I don't see that experience as negative points toward my driving abilities, but more like bad judgments and a lesson. I've only gotten one ticket in my 5 years of driving.

In memory of my first car,

Drifting on public streets into a tree eh?

Nah, that doesn't prove our point, does it?

I said it DOES prove the point. How good is your reading comprehension?

In memory of my first car,
Lucky you and that looks like a nice car. Sorry for your loss but that was an harsh lesson though. I have noticed a lot of people say that you can drift with open diff but I strongly disagree. You can barely get one going and it's hard to maintain a steady one anyway. Like a 90 year old man trying to have sex without viagra.

I've demonstrated that open diff cars can drift very well to plenty of maX guys. You just have to adjust your techniques, it's much less beginner-friendly.

^^you got my FWD civic SI hatch completly sideways. On bald winters. In the summer. (and subsequently broke the e-brake)


One last peice of advice i'd give to people who are worried about the police. Get your mechanic on your side. If you leave the shop and your mechanic goes "Man, i told you we shouldn't've done that," he's not gonna go to bat for you. If your mechanic actually believes your car is safe, he can
A) safety the car again after they pull your plates
B) write an affidavit to the court stating that he, as a liscenced mechanic, does not see any reason why your car should not be allowed on the road.


If your car rubs, stfu. That's rediculously unsafe, and you deserve to have your plates pulled. I'm not knocking people who drive around like that (i did for years), but its not smart/safe/legal.
