The Don’ts of Drifting

Drifting sounds like such a thrilling experience that a lot of us cannot help but want to experience it ourselves. In fact, it can actually be really addictive, so even if you are the one in the passenger seat while the drifting is happening, you might later feel the urge to try it out yourself, and that is only natural. In order to make sure that you are drifting properly, and not putting yourself, your car, or other people at risk, we have compiled a list of do not that you need to be mindful of when you are drifting.

  • It is recommended that you first try drifting under the supervision of an expert in order to learn and practice the technique and to make sure that everything is being done in a controlled environment. It might help to look for formal training instructors, and if you happen to be looking for any, you can check out the services being offered at
  • Do not try drifting with a tall or long car. These cars, because of their size, are more difficult to control and stir properly, so when you do hit the break and try to steer the car, there is a higher risk of the vehicle tipping over.
  • Never move the steering wheel towards your own direction because that also increases the risk of the car tipping and you getting seriously hurt.
  • Do not practice drifting in an area that has poles, buildings, barriers or anything that you can crash into. Drifting should always be done on a plane surface, so do not try to drift on an inclined or uneven surface.
  • As tempting as it might be to have a friend sit with you during the experience, it is imperative that you do not let anyone else in the car with you.
