    Sounds like fun, something different from the TTs :). TTs are still fun too though.

    This trial prompted me to have a go for the first time - I was :poop: . Looks like I need to do some study and practice.

    Respect to all the drifters out there. :notworthy:

    If anyone fancies a crazy car for drifting, I bought the tank car last night (at the online used car dealer) and it's mental !

    Me too - I tried drifting my GT-86 at Trial Mountain and I struggled to get bronze :p

    Anyone got any good tips for drifting setups? I stiffened the rear suspension and I tried mucking around with the diff settings (not really sure how to try to acheive a 'locked diff' in GT5), it helped but not enough. Or maybe I just need to improve my skills XD

    I know, personally i though of drifting as just flinging the back end out but in fact it's almost an art form, a huge :thumbsup: to those drifters out there. Drifting is a challenge and so far i'm :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop:. Thats how bad i am
