Default Learning to drift

Recently going regularly to the local open drift night and finally starting to figure it out. The new suspension setup is helping too. 200$ Ebay maxspeeding coilovers, 40$ Ebay angle kit, 100$ Ebay e46 control arms. 150$ condor speed shop e46 to e36 lower control arm bushings adapters, 10mm spacers front (could use 15mm) 20mm spacers rear ( could use 25mm). The angle kit makes all the difference, made the sweet spot much wider and the Ackerman correction eliminates the front drag in mid drift. Still need more practice but here's a video of last night's wins and fails

I already got it mostly fixxed. Ripped the top bolt ears off the coilover so I knocked it back into position at the track. Barely bent the e46 arm, I pulled and straightened the fender and nose. And I removed the bumper core and put it in the press and with some heat from a map gas torch I straightened the bumper out too. The actual frame rails only moved about 10mm and most of that was at the bumper shocks. A little pull to the side at the tow hook fixxed that.

Talked to a couple of formula drift drivers at the stl event last August and they all said to build a simulator, so I did and I think it is helping a lot. First event here in stl in a few weeks so I guess I'll find out. I also decided that Paris (my black ti) is going to drift at least 1 night this year. She might go full drift car this year too.
