winter drifting

well i like snow, and i like drifting, and damn l love my intrepid, so i mixed them all, and the turnout was 180's, 360's, and killer insane drifts, me and a guy at work had a great time, we got completely sideways, and thanks to my driving i pulled out of it and went to the next drift, it was the best driving done around here, the down fall is on the first one of the night, i came around a corner too fast, and e braked to late, i slid straight for a telephone pole and a gaurdrail at the same spot, well i cut it to the right and freakin floored it, damn, she pulled out of it more then the freiken abs did, lol, it woulda wrecked my trep for sure, lol. but over all it was fun, wish i coulda taken some vids, but its at night, camera sux, and no where to really take a vid, the inside would be boring, and outside would be risky, and suck. lol

And your wanting to sell it?

Seriously, No wonder the car has so many problems.


And you "best Driving around here"

Ha! that makes me laugh. I seriously want to flame you, but hey, You are just a kid more and likely.




Maybe one day, in the real world,. you might be able to stop watching real drivers, and may venture out.



But I doubt it.


I also ment o add,


You can not ever, truly drift a FWD car.

My insurence is actually pretty low. Im sure when 96_ started this thread it wasnt so people would bitch about it. If you dont like it then dont do it yourself and dont tell us about it.

Drifting is stupid. I'm not gonna lie, I've done it, but its not fun when every other car out there can do it.

Don't 1st Gen Treps have a Buick style parking brake? Where you have to press it again to release it? If they do, then I will give you some minor props for being able to "drift" with it.

1970 Vega with a 350 in it was the only car I was able to drift on dry pavement. Snow is fake drifting, but no doubt fun none the less.

damn, lots of posts and hostility, but yea, drifting is fun, and yes you can drift in a fwd car, and yes it has the ebrake like a buick, you have to know how to use it right, but today, not even drifting, my car hit a tree, its an uphill curve, i was goin up slowly and the front end gave out, and hit a tree bout 5 mph, and bent the frame smashing the pcm, what a retarded place for it, but that car is dead, wont run, so now, im getting a first gen eagle vision! i think its a 3.3, ill find out tomarrow, and its loaded, white, and just a lil inperfections, and even if its a parts car to fix the trep, its worth 65 bucks.

drifting is with RWD...FWD just slides around corners. when you actually drift a car the tires are speeding it up not slowing it down

Exactly!! On a rear wheel drive, you control it with the throttle. If you don't beleive me, do a quick search and tell me how many people use FWD in drift racing.

I would flame you on hitting the tree, but last year in a blizzard I hit a bridge guardrail. Luckily, I only damaged the fender.

If you want to know how to drift race watch the comp shows on TV or look at them on the web and you will see that if you think your really drifting in your trep your really not they are even judged by there rear tire smoke in competition.
