    hey guys i tried drifting on my friend's hyundai santro for the first time. it was cool but i didnt know the exact technique. just flicked the steering and lifted the handbrake. the car just turned around 90deg.:bigsmile: i was delighted, but on a serious note i wish to learn the correct technique for the 180deg turn and the scandinavian flick and if possible the 180 deg fhandbrake + the reverse flick:p

    It's about balancing the power and timing the steering inputs. In a good RWD car you should start off practicing doing donuts then figure 8's. When you've nailed this try setting the car up for a 90 degree turn learning when to apply opposite lock to straighten up. :cool:
    If it's FWD then don't bother trying. :(
