Drifting

Is there a drifting forum on 10-tenths? If so where is it? If not, why not?

We would be happy to have a Drifting forum if enough people were interested in discussing it.

So far, I think you're the only person who's brought it up! If you can find enough like minded people, we can certainly look at setting up a forum for it.

We had a request for this before and at the time there didn't seem much in the way of interest at the time. I gathered that a lot of the drifting community had their own forums as they saw themselves as "underground" and detached from the mainstream of motorsport.

If there were enough requests then we'd be more than happy to give it a try.

I see your point MagnetOn, there are a lot of drifting forums about, but drifting is becoming more and more mainstream. I see your point, and I am happy to discuss it here.

Drifters Welcome

I think we need a thread to talk about Drifting, just in case there are people interested, cause I know some people are.

Give the Drifters their own forum. Its not National & Club Racing material thats for sure.

There was much debate over the drifting thread, some threads were deleted some brought back and some moved, thats why the repeat.

I agree, but it was in the Road Car Forum and it definately doesn't belong there. Drifiting on the streets and public roads is highly illegal and dangerous, and I think you will find that 99% of competitive drifters are totally against using public roads.

I love drifting, it has bumped up the value of my Corolla (AE86) about ten fold.

Must stick it on eBay for £15K some time and see if some idiot is stupid enough to buy it! With 218BHP and terminal throttle induced oversteer when you fit a rear anti roll bar it would clean up. Shame it is then 1.5 seconds a lap SLOWER round Thruxton.

Give them their own forum, it really isn't 'racing' but is still a valid motorsport requiring significant skill, both driving and car preparation.

I also expect it will become massive in quite a short space of time.

Perhaps if we got extra points in a race for "artistic impression" or "just doing a full on Gerry", then we'd be interested in it.

As Al has said, it's a tyre company led thing that has grown out of all proportion. Innit.

What is sad, is that most of the kids who follow it drive FWD cars..... aren't they missing something?

Ahh neon's under the car... I've just fitted two 75w strip lights, but where can I get a long extension lead for use around Brands GP?

I'll have to take the fuel tank out to fit the bass box... darnit.

Go on then, their own forum under "Other Motorsports" - where Hillclimbing should be in my opinion.

I'm not complaining about it as I think it has in fact been a good discussion, I was just replying to Big Daddies post critisising us discussing the subject or the tone of the discussion.

We have the Hillclimbers and Sprinters among us in this part of the forum, and that's not racing per se.

Had this thread not started, I wouldn't have given drifting a second thought. Now I'm starting to wonder.... might be worth it for the PR.....

Rob.

AGAIN I stress I was not complaining about it being discussed here just pointing out the fact that it was in a RACING forum in reply to Big Daddies snipe at the thread and content. I repeat I think it has been a GOOD discussion and maybe it should have its own segment maybe lump it in with all other speed events like Hill climbing, Slaloms and Sprints, oh and I may come and join you Rob as it sounds like cheapish fun! :-)

Ok, folks, I think we've all got that straight, now! Nobody's complaing, and Nat & Club is generally acknowledged as the 'everything else' forum (on the grounds that 'everything else' tends to be run by people of the same general mindset as Nat & Club - doing it for fun, maybe spending big bucks or maybe not, doesn't matter as long as you're enjoying your sport, whatever it is.

So back to this drifting business... Anyone going to actually talk about the sport?
