Truck Drifting

Saturday, September 09, 2006

Drifting becomed popular after the movie The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, where drifting was the main idea of this film.Now in this movie we can see the influence of this movie in real life ..but now with sport cars, with a truck. Enjoy !

Drifting refers either to a driving technique utilizing a difference in slip angle between the front and rear tires of a car, or to a sport based on the technique; this article deals primarily with the sport. When the rear wheels are slipping at a greater angle than the front wheels, the car is drifting, or "power-sliding". The rear end of the car appears to chase the front end around a turn; the driver utilizes both front tires and the rear tires to control the actual direction of the car. More throttle induces more rear wheel slip angle and the rear of the car wants to overtake the front. The goal is for the driver to achieve opposite lock and use the throttle to fine tune the car's angle and direction.
