i dunno, in the wrong car, hitting a cone might cause the car to get that tiny bit of bump needed to finally flip it over

lol... ok so i was drivin around in my accord and i got bored, so i found an empty parking lot and gave that move a try...

i'm not sure that my car can do it... the suspension makes this low pitched shuddering sound, and i can't get the car to kick around at the end like he does... anybody found directions on how to do this?

for some reason i dont think a 4 door fwd sedan is the best thing to drift it.

all you gotta do is pull the e-brake... just turn the wheel and then pull the e-brake and the back end should whip around. i can easily do a 180 in my ranger when it's wet out. that's another thing, make sure the ground is slick....

it's a great thing to drift in if you slide trays under the rear wheels. my friend does this all the time in his 4 door grand prix-- all you gotta do is slide some trays (ones from fast food restaurants work well) under your rear wheels (back onto them) and pull the e-brake so the tires slide on them. make sure it's wet out or else the trays wear through pretty fast... it's almost better than real drifting since it doesn't wear your tires at all...

I remember when I just got my license, I was trying that move where you start out in reverse, get going to about 15 mph (thats pretty damn fast for backwards), and then apply the parking break, cut the wheel, shift to neutral, wait until you get spun around, then let off the parking break and put it into drive. Unfortunately, I never quite got it right, but I got pretty close. 2 weeks later, the transmission totally crapped out on me.

But I look forward to the parking lots getting slick from snow, its definately fun :)

My friend did something like that...except we were going forward...at about 50...and it did work.

There was 4 of us in his car, a mitsu mirage (small 4 door car) it was slightly wet outside...for some reason he decided to pull the ebrake...whipped the car around in a completel 180 and we managed to end up in the other lane facing the complete opposite way...it was actually pretty fun!
