Driving techniques

Does any of you know a good site giving proper driving techniques? I've seen the Physics site, but I would like one without the maths and the calculations. And... I'd like to know what it takes to perform a good four-wheel drift.

What you need is car-control. And you can't get that from reading a book...

Practise is all it takes, but never underestimate the power of well-founded theory.

Ay, the above three are correct

I have had enough of idiots in the pub talking complete rubbish. So - first what Four wheel drift is not

Where all four tyres are squeeling across the tarmac "Drifting". The car is goin sideways.

I really have had way too much of pub arguments where people haven't a clue. . .


Four-Wheel Drift is a cornering situation where all four tires are operating at large slip angles. Tyres have not lost grip.

judging fromwhat is produced in British pubs in general(take f.i. the beer??), you cannot expect otherwise than rubbish about whatever subject.

drifting or whatever

First of all people the point of driving a car performance car fast is to get from point A to point B in the least possible time.
Trying to get the wheels to sqeak and sqeal is just stupid, all this does is puts undue strain on the vehicle and cause extra tyre wear and you loose speed.
You dont see schumacher trying to broad slide his ferrari now do you, even with rallying the drivers try to keep wheel spin,drifting and whatever else to a minimun.

That is true, but drivers of the past were bound to go faster on some tracks by drifting. Take Goodwood, you just slide your way round it.

Drifting is illegal, and if I see any of you even trying...I'm going to arrest you and destory your license.

OK, here's something to put your teeth into.
The Maserati 250F was designed will a somewhat flexible chassis that would at its best when the car was put into a moderate four wheel drift. Period pictures of the car during races show this tendency pretty well, and Fangio probably used it to the limit.
In modern "historic races" the chassis tend to break under the improved adherence of modern tires. What is the solution to overcome this tendency? Serious answers only please. (and please Kudosdude, if you know the answer can you wait a little bit with posting, just to find who else around is really knowledgable)
