A couple of ways...more angle with little to no throttle...left foot brake during the transfer...or just let off the throttle, then roll back in it during the transfer.

I guess all I can do is just listen to the tips you all give and just keep practicing

left foot braking.. so you can stay in the throttle and power back out of the turn without dropping out of boost.

Only reason i would say using the ebrake more than the foot brake sometimes is because if you slam on the foot brake, the front will grab more than the rear (which is why i use the ebrake while slamming on the foot brake) and will cause the car to understeer/straighten out.

Left foot braking would but I would rather have the left foot unoccupied to clutch kick after slowing down and losing rpms. Using the foot brake is usually ok especially when its a "trained reaction" or from your instincts while drifting your car.. which will only come from practice. You will learn when not to use it and when to use it.. all practice.

LOL.. me of all people should keep the left foot free. After all i need it for my ebrake too :) automatic gs300 remember

On another note.. Darren, I saw you hanging out with Andy in the SlideAmerica vid. The Sup is looking good. We go to Atlanta to drift alot and Andy's always out there ripping.

Yea, another game to practice on is Forza... that game is great because you can really tweak the car and it really reacts a lot better than GT.. not sure about GT2 i never got into that one, but i think GT3 is way too hard to drift. Forza you can test your setup and be able to rely on the car to react on how it does on the video game.

Forza is a good game to get down the basics, but how can you say GT3 is hard to drift in, come on now. GT4 is hard to drift in. I tried many hours and only some months ago finally got it with a heavy car (Full weight Mk4 Supra...) with 600hp....

Either Ebrake it or left foot brake. Yes its going to be hard but it could work.

But a hard one is left hand turn going to a short straight going back into another left hander. I found on those do your normal high speed drift, slam on the brakes and lock up all 4 letting the car slide for the extra little bit, then you need to clutch kicking to get it going again.

You just got to pick a good line for those, low angle, upshift once you exit the first corner and you should just be able to let off the throttle and enter the next turn properly.
