We are all familiar with what drifting is, even if we cannot describe the technical aspect of it, or what exactly causes it, but we still know what drifting is. We can owe this knowledge to various movie and game franchises like Need for Speed, Fast and Furious, a huge chunk of action movies, and a lot of random movies as well.
Drifting is essentially making your car spin, but still having control over it. This is achieved by over spinning the steering wheel, and at the same time, and the control is maintained by the speed at which you move the steering wheel. If you are someone who has done drifting before, then you probably understand how addictive and thrilling of an experience it can be, and in case you are interested in buying some apparel or goods related to drifting, you can always check out about.me/driftcompany.
The technical aspect behind a drift is simple and easy to understand, however, it is dangerous to execute. You should only attempt drifting in a safe and secure location with someone supervising over you in case something goes wrong.
In order to initiate a drift, you start off by taking a sudden quick turn, and when you do this turn, it causes the rear tires to lose their traction. This ends up making the rear tires rotate haphazardly in the direction of the turn you take, making them spin. However, in order to make sure that you do not lose complete control over your rear tires, you use the steering wheel in order to control and turn the front tires in the opposite direction that the rear tires are going. Once you manage to do it safely and become used to doing drifts, then they can become very addictive.
