Chicaboo knows a BJ Astina can drift

Just looking at the related vids, gotta love the backfiring of this beast

Look at the loss of speed. At the end the car is almost at carpark speed.

Would have been faster using traction.

Lucky I still have the KE, it's an FF drift monstah with the hard springs in there. No drift happinessnous in granny's grocery getter though...

Lamenting what Ryan has said, I rate that about a 3~4/10 FF drift = lame. Too much use of handbrake, huge loss of speed, and bonks the last corner...

Rear wheels aren't spinning IMO - they're smoking because they're locked by the handbrake. And he wouldn't be slowing down if he was under power from the rear wheels

He wouldn't be slowing down if he did a real man's FF drift and didn't use the handbrake!

agreed, i have no trouble getting my car sideways and ive never used the handbrake whilst driving, granted never as sideways as that, but sideways none the less.
EDIT: oh and never that sideways because ive never been on track, so i dont want to get too sideways coz gutters come up awfully fast.

This guy is one of the better ones, but there is one guy better that races a green Civic in the US and Nippon.
