If you watched Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, you’d know what I mean. Wikipedia defines powersliding and has several descriptive steps on how to execute a drift or powerslide:
Drifting refers either to a driving technique, or to a sport based on the technique; this article deals primarily with the sport. When the rear slip angle is greater than the front slip angle, and the front wheels are pointed in the opposite direction to the turn (e.g. car is turning left, wheels are pointed right), and the driver is controlling this, the car is drifting.
Powersliding is usually a technique used in racing to approach a corner at full power, instead of having to approach the corner from a wide angle and slowing down. This enables the driver to accelerate quickly after the turn. This technique is also used so the driver won’t have to slow down considerably in slippery roads (such as dirt roads).
Lifespy has some points and cites a video instruction on YouTube.
* Use the power to start the slide
* Let off the power to stop the tail from spinning
* Catch the slide with the opposite lock (oversteer)
* Reintroduce the power to continue the slide
* Be gentle with the controls
Don’t try this on your regular streets and with stock suspensions, wheels and tires! You might end up hurting yourself and/or your car. If you want to learn powersliding, it’s best to consult with a professional, and to try it on the racetrack or an open field.
