MORE MORE MORE MORE MORE!!!!....Two words....MORE DRIFTING!!! There's hope yet. Good job with the supra drift.
in that case major RESPECT!!!!! :hail:jdmvigor said:I would never drift my car on dirt... no point..
That was on road..
Well, I'm not sure if that's necessarily true, it would seem that a heavier car would be more likely to keep sliding, whereas a lighter car with less mass would be more likely to stop, because mass and momentum are directly related, perhaps a physics savy member could supply the actualy equation, I know there is one!upnygimp said:I believe that I have read that higher weight means you have to carry more speed into the drift.
And you're awfully brave drifting in a Malibu.....
I used to have pics of an mk2 that was a rally car. Inspired me to take mine off roadYawgmoth said:Wasn't there a supra rally car for a while back in the day? Not all drifting in the dirt is bad
eh..... , see the the heavier car has more mass, and therefore when travelling at the same rate of speed as, lets say, our MK3, and an 87 RX7, the MkIII is heavier and has more mass, and therefore more momentum to help carry it through the turn, the RX7 is lighter, and has less mass. The same principle applies to braking...if our cars had the same size brakes as an Rx7,(and lets assume they are smaller and less efficient than our own, yeah right) then those brakes have to do more work to stop our cars, than the rx7, because what brakes do is create heat, in order to dissipate energy which is contained in momentum,...in the case of braking hard, it's forward momentum, in the case of drifting, it's sideways and forward momentum.upnygimp said:The heavier car is harder to get sliding, thus the need for more momentum.
