The Physics of Drifting



Guess who's back? Back again...Reezy's back...tell a friend. I am a very talented and well oriented driver, I've had my license for around 2 months now and I am a pro that could honestly be a NASCAR driver. One time, I was out to lunch with some bum and he decided to walk back to school. Being the good Samaritan that I am, I wasn't having any of that. I went to pick him up but didn't see him until I was very close to the parking lot he was passing so I drifted into it. This was my first ever powerslide. Friction is an integral portion of a powerslide, the tires lose traction and begin to slide so friction is basically just completely lost. In order to gain it back, I had to have very accurate steering and throttle control. When I stepped on the breaks and turned, I gained my traction back and created friction to gain control over the tires. I'm not sure if any of that is right but I think it is.
