Really? That's very interesting....you guys would drift into walls I suppose? And break just the tail lamps....very very precision driving I'd say! Or is it that you'd damage the body as well.....I would think fixing those dents would cost a bomb as well?

Where do you drift around by the way, which part of Delhi?

And welcome to Team BHP....a forum of curious, inquisitive and (generally) well-informed individuals!

WOW now that's one technical & informative introduction. drift2race what part of Delhi are you from? I would really love to meet you guys & see your car with the double discs & strengthened axles!

Waiting for the pics! I wonder how I missed a Skoda without tail lights in Delhi.

And will you PLEASE PLEASE teach me how to drift? I've been searching all over but couldn't find anybody who could teach me.

unfortunately his friend does not want to have pictures of his car posted, so doubt he'd be allowed to post any vids of his!!

Well, I was surprised to see a welcome thread go to 2 pages so just couldn't resist seeing what the fuss was about

That's awesome. Even my friend wanted to convert his RS to a drifter but then someone told him he'd need to discard his new radials at the rear and get old and worn cross-ply's in their place - so he ditched the idea.

Also, he was told that he'd need to get a FWD to learn drifting as it would be difficult on a RWD like the Skoda. Unless, of course he got a hang of how to perform the Scandinavian flick.

I'll borrow my friends RS, what the heck, I'll get him also along with me to the next T-Bhp Meet and you can teach both of us. Promise me please.

Well said Suman. Well said.

Ab bol hi diya hai so here are my 2 questions -
- Who's the friend who introduced you to TBhp?
- How do low profiles reduce ground clearance? Does ground clearance matter at all?

oops. that was 3 questions.




Awesome. You now have a vehicle ready to Drift.

umm, i hate to break it to you but the skoda(rs) is infact a front wheel driven car.


oh and drift2race i hope you are not doing something illegal(like driving a car without taillights).
even then,your rear panels would also need to be replaced no?

And welcome to Team BHP....a forum of curious, inquisitive and (generally) well-informed individuals!
we usually try out at aiims flyover curve & open parking lots ! its an expensive hobby if you just think about the dents because one time repair costs around 60000 to a lakh & since we have just started on the learning curve dents and nicks are bound to happen !

we aren't experts we have had our share of injuries trying this new way of racing & believe me i cant teach any1 now , lower ground clearance is required if you dont have the e-brake or elecetrical brake {something not available here in india } additionally you dont want to topple your vehicle over ! i cant come with this vehicle at any meet because this vehicle isnt mine , might be if i would own a skoda , i definitely would come to the meet & show you the pics of my car !

the skoda has tailights but extremely cheap roundones at that because their replacement isnt a big issue , they just cost 100 bucks each !

This is the aircraft i am talking about atr42-500 ! i will post pics of brake for this aircraft tommorow because i forgot to do the same today !

Manveet, Seems u have confused yourself totally here ... how many pegs down when u posted this ?? I dunno if you meant FWD = Four Wheel Drive or Front Wheel Drive -- And if the skoda was a RWD , it wud have been a gud car for drifting !!

I wud luv to see how ppl drift on Front Wheel cars ..... its beyond me completely !! Unless you refering to your front sliding as drifting .... ---

Cheers

sirjee galti ho gayi. typo tha.

my funda's are clear.

A Front-WD is terrible for drifting and basically understeers.

On the otherhand, a RWD (Contessa and Fiat perhaps) is good for drifting due to its inherent oversteer.

pata hai sab.

thats the technique commonly referred to as the Scandinavion flick.

last time also i erred in LHS and RHS while giving directions to XBhp meet and aapne pakad liya tha. Then also you doubted my soberness. I don't drink at all sir, but am careless in typing sometimes
