Drifting is the newest, most exciting motorsport we have seen in the United States since the invention of the limited slip differential - it may be the most exhilarating contest of man and machine ever devised! From the winding mountain passes and desolate industrial roads of Japan, this unique sport of sliding a car sideways through a series of corners has become a huge hit in America. Drifting, or dorifto as they call it in Japan, extracts the most exciting aspect auto racing, extreme oversteer, and makes it the focus of an intense and visually intoxicating new motor sport. How to Drift: The Art of Oversteer is a comprehensive guide to both the driving technique and car setup required for drifting. The author defines various precision driving techniques used in drifting and explains them from a racecar driver’ s point of view. How to Drift illustrates the finer elements of car control required in drifting with technical descriptions, detailed line art and intense photography. This book even includes a budget drift car build-up with detailed suspension, chassis, and engine modifications that will help you turn your economy car into a drift machine— on top of that, there’ s a chapter detailing the finer aspects of an SR20DET swap!
