Drift Car Discussion

Recommended Posts

JesterOfGenocide

Several pages and half a year later people still only popping in to say "You can't drift in GTA"... Agree to disagree but no need for every other post to only say "You can't do that." It has been said MANY times in every drifting thread so you either aren't bothering to read the rest of the thread or simply trying to get into arguments. Either way, why bother just repeating the same thing over and over and denying any possible proof of existence in any form?

Powersliding is not drifting.

Holding your handbrake and "dragging" your car around a corner while you give it a bit of steering to prevent the car from going forward (not spinning out) is not drifting, you're just powersliding at your best hopes.

 

But does it really matter? I mean it's just a label, if you're having fun then go for it.

exactly, GTA drifting may not be actual drifting to some, but it is what it is and it is drifting in GTA. basics are kinda the same in that we use the steering wheel, brakes, e-brake and throttle to "drift" in GTA, last time i checked you still use those same things for "real drifting" also. personally i would not really consider it to be "drifting" as it is commonly known, but more powersliding and ass dragging, but like i said it is what it is and this the way for "drifting" in GTA.

well IMO there is a fine line between powersliding and drifting if you think about it. brake (normal braking or e-braking or some vehicles just lift off throttle) going into a corner to start the slide and then power out to continue the slide. that description is very basic, but in a basic sense it covers both powersliding and drifting. personally i powerslide, charge hard into the corner intiating with e-brake and then let it slide till the point i need to power over and continue through the corner with the throttle and drive off. the drifting where people are just sliding back and forth continually is just too boring for me.

I agree with you, by that definition we can categorize many things as drifting which is not necesarily a bad thing. As long as you can get around a corner at an angle at full speed in a cool way i consider it drifting. No matter what you call it its still fun and takes a lot of skill an practice to pull of a good looking slide.

I understand where youre coming from, but in GTA, SOME cars can actually accelerate while drifting out of a turn, which to me is the truest form of drifting. if you can get sideways, drop a gear and spin those tires, while accelerating, youre definitely drifting. that is the hardest part in GTA. it is very hard to accelerate thru a drift instead of just slowing down. if you watch GTA wise guys video above, he accelerates out of a ton of his drifts with the banshee. thats why the banshee is so beast. we can basically only hope for not losing any speed in drifts in other cars. i would say theres only a handful that can accelerate, about 10 that can maintain speed thru a drift, the rest slow down, which in my eyes, would then be considered powersliding.

Sorry for bring this up after so many time, but i can´t find a official thread for Drift discussion around the "glitch" where you shoot all rims untill break the suspension twice and make some cars viable for drifting.

 

Schwartzer, Rapid GT, Faction, Mamba, Hotknife, 900R... Next week will come the 190z to the game, and i can´t wait to see if the glitch will work or not. The Vapid Hustler (released today) and the Viceris was the last too that can do some decent slides.

Its a rich topic because theres so much speculation and content about parts, tunning, proper wheels, slight physic changes, tracks, techniques and so on...

 

Some sample showing what is possible doing with "glitch".

People who say drifting is impossible in GTA are just uneducated people who've probably only tried the generic futo equipped with a spoiler.

Perfect example of how a car can actually be drifted (or powerslid) even through tight corners. This of course, in most cases, requires stancing your car by shooting at the rims and heavy abuse of the double-clutch or mid-drive speed boost mechanic. Not making the drift/powerslide any less impressive in my opinion.

RWD Media's channel is full of drift-related content and to my knowledge is the best source of sideways action in GTAO.
[Disclaimer: I am not sponsored to say this.]

Excellent example also there by @LazyLiquid.

F620 is a pretty good drift car once you break the suspension

And neither can the Flash GT, which made me die inside a little.. Although the Drift Tampa can't do much at least it tries, one would think that after a year or two the next "drift" car will be adequate but nope they even add an extra restriction flag to it. Oh you want to double clutch now? How about a 4-6 seconds engine failure instead..

 

 

This is from 6-7 years ago (not mine). Is that so much to ask for?
