Types of Techniques to induce a drift: Hand Brake Drift is the most common and a beginner technique. This is done by approaching a corner at the desired speed, downshifting while keeping the clutch in and pulling the hand brake quickly and stongly for a moment while turning into the corner. Let down the hand brake and release the clutch and counter steer. Just because this is a beginner techinique, doesn't mean that proffessionals can't use it.
Power-over: not going to go over this one because it don't like it.
Shift Lock: Down shifting very quick without heel-and-toeing which causes the wheels to lock suddenly and momentarily to induce the drift. Sort of like the Hand Brake.
Clutch Kicking: I learned on this as well as Hand Brake. This is done by "kicking" (hence the title) the clutch to send a jolt or shock throught the powertrain which causes the rear wheels to slip. I don't exactly know why.
Braking Drift: This is one of the weight shift techinques. It is done by shifting the weight to the front of the vehicle which is followed immediatly by the gas which makes the rear wheels to lose traction.
Feint Drift: Another weight shift techinique. This is done by turning very quickly away from the turn a little then swinging or flick it back into the corner to get the rear to lose traction. Hit the gas and continue with the drift.
Kansei Drifting: Don't know how to do this so i will take straight from wikipedia: "By letting off the accelerator while cornering at very high speeds, cars with relatively neutral handling will begin to slide, simply from the weight transfer resulting from engine braking. The drift is controlled afterwards by steering inputs from the driver and light pedal work, similar to the Braking drift."
Thats about it. Have fun. I'm not going to go over the cars used because you can basically use any rear wheeled drive vehicle. All-Wheeled drive cars are able to drift but due to their pulling of their front wheels, will pull out of it. Same with Front-Wheeled cars.
also is a side effect of whatching Initial D.
