tires for drifting

Personally I feel like the Dunlop Direzza sport Z1star spec 185/60-14 tires are the best kind of tires for drifting both street and dirt. The wider the tire is the better it is for drifting because you slide a lot easier and you are less likely to flip the vehicle trying to drift. Dunlop Direzza are special drifting and sport tires that many professionals use! This tire isn't just good because it is good for drifting but this tire is a thick and grippe tire. Star Spec tread compound helps provide faster lap times from the start by developing more traction in temperate temperatures along with consistent grip on laps when the tires are fully warmed up. There are so many tires you can use for drifting but if you don't have the right or even good enough tires then you will see yourself blowing threw more money then you should have to for new tires. The idea is to have good wide thick tires preferably Dunlop Direzza sport tires. Ultimately if you wanted to take up drifting you should have two sets of tires you would switch back and forth between drifting tires and everyday street tires.   .

So because con-Sam chose a hard topic for this assignment and I couldn’t find anything on the internet I am going to tell you everything I know to prevent any accidents from happening. First it depends where you are located to begin with, weather you are on a freeway or highway possible an old logging road or just some road in the middle of b.f.e. the conditions are always different there is rarely a time when you will come across several different places that have the same kind of road conditions. Finding the right spot to start drifting can be a hard choice depending on what kind of vehicle you have and what you are willing to put it through.
       Drifting a rear wheel drive car I would want a place where the road is smooth and not a lot of bumps or traffic someplace where there are obstacles for you to slide around but not hit anything too hard if you happen to lose control and spin out. Also conditions such as foggy, frosty down pouring and hailing are not good conditions to drift in you may or may not be worried about hitting anything or anyone before you actually get in your car during those serious conditions but the total outcome of it depends on whether you want to put your friend or just any person in danger by trying to drift around during bad conditions.
       The perfect conditions for doing a perfect drift would be somewhere where you can get to know your obstacle and it’s a dry somewhat smoother surface without having to worry about traffic or pedestrians getting in the way and or putting themselves and you at risk of being injured .some people do it for fun some do it for sport but either or can be dangerous so it is always good to take things into precaution before attempting a drift.      b.k

smoking tires

breaking traction

HAIKU Losing traction now the tires start to poor smoke we slide rite through. b.k
Everyone has there own passion about something whether its reading books, playing a sport or even just playing video games. But for me my passion is drifting. Nothing else is like coming up to a corner at high speeds breaking traction to slide threw the corner at a faster pace then before. Drifting is an amazing rush and if you like to drive, race, and fix cars this could be perfect for you. This doesn't mean go get in the next fast car you see and try to drift it around a blind corner this does take time and practice but it also takes a little bit of brains to know what to do if something goes wrong or if you have to pull out of a drift because you see something that could possibly hurt you. If you are a first time drifter don't go and lose your car or possible life. Get to know your car not just how it drives and handles but know whats under your hood to know how much your pushing or so you can also learn to fix what you break or even tune it to make it better.

In 2013 four friends set out in the mountains on a quest to find old dirt roads with tight corners.they where driving a 2008 nissan gtr skyline six speed manual transmission.harry was driving ,peter was riding shotgun and gomer and jimmy where riding along in the back.they had put there money together and made out with five hundred dollars for gas and two sets of new toyo street tires.they made it about half way up the mountain when they came across there first set of nice corners so gomer and jimmy got out and set up one post at each corner.harry turned the car around and and started to go for the first corner he was ripping pretty good when jimmy pulled the e brake and gassed the car pitching the back of the car hard to the side they spun around and where facing in the direction that they had started jimmy whipped the car back around got his nerves down and went for it again this time missing the first pole by about a fraction of an inch he tapped the brake a little bit featherd the gas and pulled the e brake at the next corner making the transition perfect they slide around the end of the corner with the final turn in sight they hit the last corner and had successfully made it through without to many issues.they put the video on the tube and metal mulisha rally car drivers commented on the post and want to meet up with then sometime so they can do a few practice runs on the practice course.

My passion for this topic stands in a point where when you and your buddies don't have anything to do but drive on old back roads and get sideways.drifting isn't just fun but if you do it enough then the driver will become more aware of his surroundings during regular day driving.also i love the feeling of getting sideways something about sliding across the road puts you on the edge to make the best line you possibly can around the tight corners.even if you don't succeed you can keep trying and eventually you will get better you just have to pay attention to the car its self basically you and the car must become one in the mind.Drifting is a sport that can take all the things your thinking about at that particular time out of your head when you buckle yourself into the driver seat.
