Sideways is sexy

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

FEINT-DRIFT

Daijiro Yoshihara is arguably one of the most impressive drivers in Formula D racing today. He has been known to drive the crowds wild with his aggressive maneuvers and reckless abandon when sliding into sharp turns at high speeds. We'll conclude this weeks drifting lesson with the Feint-Drift. This is the most complicated drift we've attempted so far. Let's hear what Yoshihara has to say.

"This is it! Get this one right and you're on your way to becoming a professional! I know you got what it takes! The Feint is a technique drifter borrowed from rally racing. Approach your turn just like you normally would. Only, instead of turning towards the corner, you quickly turn away then back towards the turn. By doing this you'll load one side of the car and it'll snap back in the desired direction. Counter steer as you feel the backend come out from under you."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

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.
