Pinkbike Golf

Just a quick video I made of me drifting in an AWD Golf. Not the best drifter, but representing Pinkbike is all that matters.

 Gran Turismo 5 is better..... Razz Joke (but its true), i drift in GT5 with a Lambo murcilago V2. Its good fun, and thats 4 wheel drive, 700+ BHP. The Veyron has a little bit more difficulty flying sideway though Razz

 "easier in an all wheel drive too."


no it is not, and not trying to be overly harsh, but you just looked like your set up was a little off, and your car was getting loose under power.

try with a silvia or similar sized rwd jap car with about 300BHP, my silvia that you commented on had like no power, just lots of rear spring Razz

 Ah right, I have no idea on how to set up a car for drifting Confused I just tuned the Golf up to 400BHP lowered it and fling it round corners. lol

 i also find that about 5-6 degrees of front camber works wonders, along rear tow out about .75-1.


spring rate depends on the car, but about 4-5 hundy pounds difference works nicely, then tune from there, i find that the more gentle you are going in the smoother you are through the drift

as for tires, not sure how forza works, but in GT5 comfort soft worked the best

corner entry - if its a circuit swing in low before the corner start a drift going up the track, then swing around the corner(e-brake is typically your friend in this case) for a track like that, try your best to do the same just not as exaggerated.

corner center- do your best to stay in the power(getting out of it switches direction obv) but if you have to get out of it steer accordingly(slowly back off from the wheel locked in the direction of the drift) if you need to slow down your drift/pull it back in line a bit, up shifting works in some cases, others it just kills the drift, the same can be said that if u need to pull tighter just down shift, some times it works some times it dont, experiment with it

corner exit- try and get semi straight and start lining up for the next corner(still holding a drift if u can)and swing the car back the other way so u can get a smooth corner entry on the next.


also experiment with the e-brake for corner center, can bog down the car and kill the drift, but can also pit the car tighter around the corner.


also just noticed how long my post was lol mah bad
