I suck at drifting too, but I really enjoy watching those people who have mastered it.

Did you see the YouTube video of the drifter on the final track in the GT Academy competition?  He drifted around almost the entire track and almost posted a gold medal time.

I think you almost have to use the stick to drift.  I have tried some with the wheel and found that I needed grippier tires to avoid a complete 360.  But I am sure that there are people who have mastered it.

The fun part will be finding a car that you enjoy using.  Look at the leaderboards for the drift trials to see what the best people are using.  Most people use RWD, but some use AWD.

Well, I drift because I cannot control the freaking beast, and often results in spin, wall, and whatever stopping the car to go further!  Man Embarassed

I know this is a somewhat lame way to get this trophy but if folks are interested in getting all trophies at some point or another, the easiest way to get this one is this...

 

 

 

 

I'm not very good at drifting myself and I got this trophy in just a few tries by doing the above.  Another tip... it's much, much easier to drift with a controller than it is with a wheel.

I know a lot of drifters that have their own channels and teams. In fact their is a site called gtplanet here is the link There is a drifting forum this is where people go to possibly join a team go to the meets they have their, or just to meet and watch the events they put up on there. Smiley Happy its an overall fun place. They also have a teaching thing for all those that "need help" drifting. I can teach its not hard once you get the right setup. Add me tho guys if you need help. CheladaJr, You probably see it on the side there but who cares lol Smiley Happy thanks for posting on this thread too. Im trying to make this one a on top so if more drifters new to here can see. Make it like the Official Drift thread on the PSN forums. Smiley Happy

My favorite track to drift is the grand valley drift trial. So far I've gotten up to 15,000 on it, I'll post a pic when I get home today. I think I did it in the Maserati GT Smiley Happy
