I have one query - what is the difference between a four wheel drift and a normal two -wheel drift part from the fact that the four wheel drift can only be done in AWD cars. Can AWD cars also do other types of drifts apart from the four wheel drfts.

Hi Revvedup,

A four wheel drift would require all four wheels to break traction (therefore you need an AWD)
A two wheel drift requires only two wheels (usually the rear/driven wheels) to break traction.

For a simpler comparison, lets say 4-wheel drifts are more commonly seen in drit/snow rally stages where the whole car is going sideways, and 2-wheel drifts are seen in the typical drift competitions where it appears like the tail is pivoting around the front wheels which have more traction.

AWD cars can do other types of drifts as well, depending on the (sometimes manually adjustable) power/torque split between front and rear wheels, techniques of weight transfer etc...

Ecellent stuff, I particularly like the cornering article as that is what I enjoy the most be it a bike or a car.

i'm novice to car riding.. but i defly enjoy the drift action in movies - bought a original Tokyo Drift DVD for the pleasure of viewing it at my time.

Now, i'm not sure when i'll do it on my own.. but sure its so kicking to read the action.

May be one day..

Thanks
