Drifting with Rear Wheel Drive Manual
Find a car with both rear-wheel-drive and a manual transmission.
Head to an open area (i.e. an empty parking lot) safely free of pedestrians and motorists.
Shift Lock/Hand brake technique:
Accelerate and shift to second gear, which allows the widest variance of speed and is best for harnessing the engine's torque without overly stressing the mechanicals.
Push in the clutch to let the engine rev.
With the engine revving, flick the steering wheel to the outside of the turn and steer strongly inside toward the turn.
Simultaneously release the clutch. (If you are uncomfortable with this method of sliding, try pulling the hand brake to further reduce traction(never pull brake while accelerating). While that won't kill your car initially, it is a bad habit to get into. Don't start now.)
Immediately steer the car in the direction of the slide. You're drifting!
Accelerate to 40-60mph
turn quickly, but not full lock, while - disengaging the clutch quickly(and releasing the accelerator)
When you feel the slide, re-engage the clutch, quickly counter steer, and apply throttle smoothly.
Drifting with Rear Wheel Drive Auto
Find a large, open area.
Accelerate to a speed of 20-30(depending on lot size and room)
Turn the wheel hard and floor it. You should feel the rear end slide around if this is done correctly. Repeat until comfortable with sliding.
Set up a cone in the middle of the lot. Drive up on the cone and turn around the cone. when you begin your turn accelerate hard to get the rear end loose.
Counter steer to control where your car will go after turn.(opposite lock)
Increase speed until comfortable
Note that if your vehicle of choice doesn't have enough power read the FWD directions but remember to release hand brake before accelerating.
Drifting with Front Wheel Drive
Go to a large, open area.
Accelerate then pull the handbrake or use the parking brake, riding it out the first time or two to get over your initial fear.
Set up a cone in the middle of the lot.
Drive up to it at speed (between 20 and 30 is desired).
Hit the brake and turn toward the cone. Immediately after you feel the back end come around, turn to the opposite direction. This is known as opposite lock.
Repeat the opposite lock at that speed until you can control your car well. Practice this for at least several weeks regularly until it becomes second nature. (Don't do this on roadways. It is dangerous to others and can get you fined.)
Slowly increase speed until you are proficient in a speed you are comfortable with. Get to know that speed--you should never drift above that speed unless you are practicing.
Upgrade. At the same initial speed, flick the steering wheel opposite of the turn and swing it all the way into toward the CONE (not turn, you aren't ready at this stage). As before, when you feel the rear end come around, go to opposite lock. It takes time and practice to successfully use the Scandinavian flick, especially on under powered cars.
No two cars react identically; try to "feel" yours to familiarize yourself with its reactions.
All wheel drive vehicles can be drifted, but it requires a specific, rather more difficult technique. Keep in mind that there are no rules that can be applied to AWDs because every car is different and more importantly, every AWD system is different. Read about your car, read real articles on it and go talk to people. If they tell you that you must drive rear wheel drive, find someone else.
In a rear wheel drive vehicle, you don't need to pull the brake as you improve, but it is often necessary when first learning.
When looking for an area to learn and practice, gravel is preferable because it is easier on your tires.
This is only a starting point. To do more, you need driving school to teach more than just basic maneuvers and you need driving theory.
