Sideways is sexy

Anyone can do it facing forward. Our three-part how-to videofest will have you sliding it in from the side.


Now that you've internalized the basic concepts of drifting, check out our next exclusive video featuring Power-Over drifting... but first, read the sage advice of Daijiro Yoshihara on the subject:

"Let's do something easy first. Power-Over drifting. It's just using the gas to get your car sideways."

"To do a Power-Over, just give it full gas and turn the wheel hard right or left. Try to spin the car in circles in one place. This is how you will practice. Once you've mastered this, you'll be able to use a Power-Over to do much more!"

"You may have to countersteer to keep the car from spinning out, especially later, when you have more power to play with. Watch me!"

I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
