What is drifting? I thought that meant sliding around in a snowy or iced parking lot.

^lol sort of drifting is to sort
of power slide through a turn by
locking your back wheels making
ur car drift into the turn. When
drifting with a fwd car you must
use the ebrake to accomplish a drift
but are only ,in the most part,
successful only through one drift.
When going through 2-3 turns consecutively
the ebrake is not sufficient and
not as responsive as rwd cars this
is why when drifting it is much easier
and practical to use rwd.

You don't drift in a fwd car period. it's retarded and pointless.

although if you REALLLY must then gut the hell out of the rear of your car, and use very cheap all season tires that have hardly any tread left and you've got yourself 1 outa control celica smile with practice you should be able to slide the rear with out the e-brake. controlling it after you do that is another story grin

first acccquire 2 lunch trays like mcdonalds or burger king (make sure they are palstic)

second find a open parking lot.( preferable no the mcdonalds lot you stoel the trays from.

third

put them infornt of yoru rear wheels and drive onto them pull e brake when both rear wheels are on a tray kee e brake locked.

now drift aroudn the parking lot. oh yeah i am not held responsible if anyone tries this and messes up their car do at yoru own risk.
