Basically, all R/C cars and real cars can drift... Some easier than others of course, but that's more a matter of setup and driving style...

If you want an easy way to drift, you can always tape your tires with Electrical Tape.

Yeah~~I have a drift practicing car. It's 1/18 MICRO RS4. Just tape tires with Electrical Tape. Then you can practice drift in your house.

We should ask InitialD if he could drift?

Now I have watched the Yokomo vid a lot of times, and to be honest, it's not really sick... Ok, they have ok nice drifts, but it's nothing überspecial about it... I don't think it's wide enough, and they make it look to much 4wd... Of course, it is 4wd, but the real 180sx isn't, and I have done and seen lots of drifting that looks more realistic than that.... But hey, I'm not saying it's a bad vid, so don't shoot me here!!
