Usually i try to do them in spots where i can afford to loose control without damaging my car, but when i DO chose the times to do it heat of the moment type thing, i dunno, usually i don't mess up TOO bad (KNOCK ON WOOD!)

I drifted on time on an on-ramp to the 403 with my old 325i, took the first 3rd of the ramp with the car atleast 30 degrees cock eyed. it was fun but a little scary cause i was doing about 70 km/h. I managed to regain traction (thank god for RWD) my heart was beating like crazy for the next 15 min. LOL

Another time I was drifting in the rain with my 318, kicked it out going left in an intersection. the back end got really lose and almost came around to meet me!

You can snap it back fairly easly but you gotta watch you don't end up in a different lane. Most bmw's don't have enough power to maintain a constant drift, they seem to hook up far too well.

It locks the diff so equal power is sent to both tires, makes it a "No slip" rather then limited slip. they are usually used on camaro's mustangs and even honda's.

Hm don't the E46 M3's have that too.

I thought I heard that they use an electronically limited slip system such that it can do full lock ups for equal power?

Unless I'm mixing something. hmmm

Drifting is where it's at, but there is a time and a place. I like to do it, but my car can sometimes be a handful, especially when the rear end grips and snaps the back end the other way. I prefer it in the rain, less hard on the tires, and you need less horsepower to keep the drift going.
