    Who says you cant drift in a FWD car!!!

    was going down a country road this morning when i slighty tapped the brakes and the back swung out completley, i would say a good 80 degrees!!! now i think back i was going a bit to fast. i finished it off with a nice nose dive down into a small ditch and bush!!
    the UK over reacts to snow, i think its wicked!!!

    Of course you can drift in a front wheel drive. It's call "lift-off oversteer". It takes real skill, bad roads and crap rear tyres to really do it properly (I have 2 of the 3 I mentioned).

    You can drift an Astra quite easily. By all accounts MK3's and 4's are quite arse end happy.

    I don't like not being in control of my car but some car park action saw me with a beeming smile on my face whilst the missus decided to test how many Db's my left ear could handle.

    I must say though I have a friend that is Danish and she says this weather is nothing compared to back home she can't see what the fuss is about.
    Its a jam thing

    Hay i managed to drift a 1.0L metro.
    I'm like a bad penny, old, dirty, and appears when not wanted.
