Drifting on stone/sand ground...will it spoil the car?
For e.g. the suspension, ball bearing and engine..

Stressing the engine at 5k rpm for around 3-5 seconds, any damage?

Noob here... :rolleyes:

drift will damge engine, tyres, suspension n ur wallet( petrol).
yea true. and sometimes ur car and urself too.. so careful when playing around ler.. especially for proton cars u have to be extra careful.. get a harder springs for ur car before playing.. its dangerous to play with stock wira springs, it flex like mad ( just my self experience so far, playing butt sliding, pls do not flame me if im wrong..)

by using common sense, you'd know that by drifting, spirited driving
it will cause more wear and tear to the car's engine, suspension,etc
as compared to normal driving.

but if you actually drift and you love to drift,
i dont think you'd mind the repair bills and such.

ic..now thats more like it..
i was crackin my head figuring how to drift an FF car..kekeke :lol:
i'm also using a comparatively hard springs,not so much prob with humps but really uneasy when travelling on uneven roads(holes everywhere),coz car like goin to tear apart due to vibration..

i dun really know anything bout "yaw"..
izzit mean car tilt like a boat while cornering?

mayb u could share some of yr experience with me bout sharp cornering,360 and yaw..
i'm a new driver.. still P :huh:

haha, what a topic. :D

i think drifting for ff stock cars will cause suspension wear n tear excessively, tires botak faster, car front lower arms to get loose, kacau wheel allignment and balancing...hm...wat else ar?oh, maybe more loose parts as well.

after all that i've mentioned according to my experience, i admit that i drive a stock ff car, and still drift.

I'm lovin' it. :P

cheers

haha, yep, only the hand brakes will help. unless, if u r insane enough, try playing with the camber settings, buy botak tires, stiff suspensions, and a whole lot of b@lls to corner at high speeds. never tried it though, but mayb it'll work. lol :P

haha talking bout hard spring...windz me taufu feel shock lah..
refer to the topic:

actually when u play ass draging(sliding) or drifting u dun really need to care about the tyre consumption and stuff. coz u are making fun our of it,so dun giv a f about it. BUT u need to always take care ur car....rountine check on ur engine oil...notice any weird sound..tyre pressure is important..etc etc.

u can ask mr windz to teach u..this ass damn got steel ball one!! jiggly also!! hahaha **cabut**!!

anyway like wat keichi said...just have fun!!!!!
