Lightbulb Drift entrance techniques/form

I know there has been discussion about this but hopefully this is bringing something else.

there are many methods to entering into a drift "Kickin it out" and I am wanting to get some feed back of which style in what situations are best suited use for tight turns, longer ones, keeping your angle, and of course initiating your drift.

Double clutching
Down shifting
Ebrake
Pitching the car ( swerving to one side then the other)
shifting gears while in a drift
braking technique

Please dont take me as a dumb ass.

Pretty much just want to get technical. I hear people say "your a better driver if you dont touch your ebrake. and viseversa. Im not saying Im the best but I do well with my style, however I see most pros do use it. I double clutch, down shift. and rarely use the ebrake. Been doin it on and off for 8 yrs but still want to improve so would like some feedback.


I want to open this up to beginners as well as experienced as well as get incite to maneuvers that will improve driving skills such as angle of attack,and transfers..etc. I know practice makes perfect but even then there are tricks to the trade of perfection which Im trying out. because you can always improve.

so if you got some info, want others to critique your style, or need to be critiqued yourself. Please post up some info.

Thanks to all

Drew

Honestly not a bad thread. I definitely rely on my ebrake more than I should, but it makes entrances more consistent. I just carry to much speed and hold the ebrake for 3 or 4 days to slow down to the correct entrance speed. I don't clutch kick as much as I could/should and I think my driving would benefit from more controlled clutch modulation. I need a better clutch before that though.

my e-brake isn't even hooked up, when i first started drifting i relied on my e-brake way too much, almost every entry, but my second s13 i got i decided i didn't want to e-brake. all i do now is clutch kick and feint, sometimes if i'm just messing around i power into it (with what power the sohc has)

I find that doing those big top of 3rd entrys the ebrake is a good way to stay consistent.

Well of course car set up is very important but Im tryn to dig deep in to driver preferences and or necessities to get that bitch kicked out.... weather you have a D1 car or lowering springs, and a welded diff meaning there are some manuvers that require some trickery and thats what Im lookin for...

I know that using the ebrake doesnt mean your a bad drifter Im trying to see what alternatives others use more often.

Foot brake to transfer. Idk just always done it. Let off the gas tap brake smash back on gas. Never used E brake for anything except extending. Dont really like e brake initiations. Either flick or clutch kicks.

I dont understand how that works?
Seems like what your saying you do would have the opposite effect on the car.

When i front brake in a corner, it helps to extend the drift at the existing angle and will also give you more angle.
It doesnt bring my car around.

locking up your leading tires will let the rear rotate around which ever side it is sticking out.
so it wouldn't get the rear to hook up and bring it around.

Am i missing something?

When Tommy locked his fronts up at irwindale, he kept the same angle all the way into the wall, it didnt bring his rear aroudn the other way and save his car........

confused.

Soap is right though.
the car setup is everything.

At balcony, at WSIR
way to many variables

Sohc springs shocks vlsd
2nd gear, feint, give it a hell of a clutch kick and stand on it for a bit. it slowly comes out as it locks, and then slight lift to "set"
Or a long ebrake to make sure it stays sideways long enough for the vlsd to lock.

My SOHC with springs and shocks and welded,
3rd gear, big fient and ebrake
(big feint because the springs really body roll and I use that, ebrake because i want to be in drift right away and dont have time to hope that SOHC can power over with a feint in a 3rd gear entry.)

SOHC full suspention and welded.
I can go in the same way with a feint so small that you cant notice, because my coils are so stiff the body roll happens really fast and you dont want to miss it.
Or i can downshift to 2nd and clutch lock it because i am in 2nd at redline before passing the first clip anyways.

Or, I can go 2nd and get a good clutch kick if I am trying to keep up tandem with someone.
The welded makes up the for lack of HP when trying to lock up a 2way quik. The low HP can let you straighten out your 2 way pretty easily in shallow chase angle.
staying in second means i dont have to lift to shift before the transition.

transfer?
ebrake?
pedal?

fucking momentum dude.
The shit will swing you like a pendelum.
right before your car starts to catch and swing back,lift for a sec so the wheels catch, a quik steering in for more angle before letting it spin will flick you the other way, and back on the gas as it comes around.

now every diff reacts differently.
as well as springs or coils.
wheel size
width
tires size
width
stretch or not
camber
type of car.

and i am sure JR uses the ebrake in closing the gap situations.
everyone does.
he may also be a big front braker.
but ebrake has its advantages.
JR also drives a car that has power to start drifting in any gear on a tranny that is far from stock.
most of us need the ebrake with our low HP.

and you can be alot mroe precise on your clipping points with the ebrake.
when you initiate with the ebrake,
you are going directly into a drift
when you clutch kick, it may take a second and you may pass the clip wide or not initiate at all.

dont feint to hard, you might drift the wrong way, like that video of that dude drifting into the people last year.
in compititon drifting, the judges also dont want to see feints.

the ebrake will also take your momentum and make it go sideways instead of forwards.
I have tapped many cones and curbs with my front bumper by ebraking past them.
without the ebrake, i would have driven my front tires right over them.
i also use ti to get up along the side of cars in tandem or to throw my angle wide and drift past the back of cars that spin out in front of me.



this is just off the top of my head, and trying not to let this thread be a total joke.

you need to go to the track and actually drift with some people and ask for help from people that are kicking ass in Low HP cars.
because low HP car drivers end up getting really good at making the most of their drifts and their abilities.

I dont think we need to see cars swearving from side to side all rediculous.

they still do them, its just more of a really fast steering wheel jerk.
Their suspension is so stiff you can barely see it anyways.

Whoa ... lol any way I was saying straight to the point as in he put his technique out there. I do pretty good w/o but Ive been limited to 3 tracks and

I do go to the track and I have a high & Low Hp car. I auctually drift more w/ my bone n/a sohc. What I need to do is work on my high speed drifts. .

I do take it back tho JR did use the ebrake on a 180 turn but besides that he was just using momentum to transfer.

I hardly ever use the ebrake and eventhough I dont practice high speed drifts as much I still do and all you have to do is have the right speed, angle and have good throttle controll for a car that has decent power. I also see where you are comming from on closing the gap and stretching the drift I guess Im just a little harder on the eng... haha I do pretty good w/o but Ive been limited to 3 tracks and just like you said I need to practice

I know its allot about the car set up and I hope this will provide input into peoples builds cause the better the set up the the more accuraccy obtained.

Thanks for the input eric hopefully ill see you at willowsprings one day. Im moving my events there so I will be able to practice.

Very informative video too

Not to offend you, but if your talking stock KA.
You are not harder on the engine then me, lol.

And technically, if you were harder on the engine, you would be getting even more out of it and prolly want to use the ebrake to keep a drift after a long shallow transition.

I actually ebrake more in my SOHC.

Its because i dont have the power to maintain really long drifts or get the car to step back out when its trying to catch.
Or
Because i lack the power to actually propel myself away from a wall, so as i come in sideways, i need to slow it down so as i am coming around a wall, i dont get in deeper than a little tap.

yeah, come to the track.

Here is a run i did at Balconey years ago.
3rd gear entry with ebrake, shift into 2nd during the transition.
Since i lift to transition, it makes it easy to put the clutch in during that time and shift really fast.
you can see where i am clutch kicking because the car steps out pretty hard.

Usually a small feint with a clutch kick does the trick.

Karl Wasabi taught me the double-clutch kick, which is highly effective.

In the rain, i like to clutch kick and ebrake for some serious fun.

Turn out, turn in, clutch kick, ebrake, back on gas when i see fit, and go from there. Usually i start drifting rather early and I always end up with loads of angle.

Straight line e-brake is fun too!

I really need to practice my Scandinavian flick more.

I love the high speed flick, a long slide into a sharper corner (holding with the E) looks so cool.

Also, the e-brake is good for adjusting angle. Sometimes when you clutch kick in, you can set the car, but you want more angle. A quick pull of the E gives you the angle. That way you can adjust for different curves and speeds better.

I also dig 4-wheel high speed lock ups. Tanner Foust was one of my favorites for these. Come in super hot, weight transfer to get the car sideways, then holding the e-brake and the pedal to lock up all 4 at the same time.

So cool.

Sounds like a pretty difficult but awesome technique.

That's how i roll. Atleast until i hook my bmr handbrake up. I'm hoping after i put my rebuilt calipers on that my standard handbrake actually works again. Would love to have both to practice stuff with.

Feint is hands down my favorite thing to do. I blame Mitsuru Hariguchi. Dude was awesome when he had his fc.

yeah, i haven't done too many 3rd gear entries but the sohc can't really do it by feinting, it looses power really quick. i'm replacing my clutch soon and i'm probably going to hook my e-brake up and try some 3rd gear e-brake entries. but once i do my ca swap thsi winter, i'll go back to clutch or feint.

This thread should be track and turn specific. In general, you want to avoid ebrake initiations but I use it at certain tracks.

Buttonwillow Onramp 100mph 4th gear entry I used ebrake but I'll probably try a clutch kick if ever get to try it again.

HTM First judged turn 3rd gear clutch kick to ebrake extension or just straight ebrake initiation, big angle, hang it to the edge and let the car set

Balcony 3rd gear clutch kick and stay on throttle until the transition, shallow and fast

Streets of Willow Turn 1 - 4th gear 100mph entry, straight feint while open throttle but I pussed out, didn't stay on the throttle long enough, and didn't make it with the ebrake extension. I'll pull the aero off this summer when I get to try it again.

WSIR Oval - 3rd gear clutch kick to ebrake extension or 3rd gear ebrake to the edge and let the car set or 3rd gear clutch kick, off throttle and wait until the car sets

I have always relied too much on using the ebrake to get my car where I want it. It's much safer but it is slower and will hurt you in competition. I often use it on transition to set the car but it's not always best because it doesn't look as smooth. I'm fine with using it however because I like my car and don't like crashing. My car has always stayed in one piece so it's a tradeoff. I've won a few competitions and placed well at multiple tracks using all these techniques so it's not like your doomed if you use the ebrake. Just use it sparingly. There are some places where it's OK to use it like for instance FD Sonoma. Most FD drivers use it to initiate there but I believe Ueo didn't and his entry looked pretty gangster from what I remember, however he did fly kind of wide.

And lastly, avoid it as best you can when leading in tandem.

Maybe my car was set up super funny but if i let off the gas and my angle would start to shallow and I just stabbed the brake it would rotate the other way. Can be bad also because its easy to understeer like tommy did too.

You said foot brake to transfer above.
i took that as your brakeing to transition.
Not braking once your momentum in a transition is happening.
if its a manji, just clutch kick that transition once your momentum is going the correct way.
just remember to grab your wheel and turn in a little faster to make sure to catch teh car so you dont spin.


Flybert, how much HP do you have, lol.

Im talking for us low HP guys and your talking about some next level shit, lol.
