Intro to Drift #3: How to Drift
You can watch other folks drift beautifully to your heart's content, but you'll never know what it's truly like to drift until you get in the driver's seat. In this episode, pro drifters James Bondurant and Calvin Wan teach newbie Tommy how to drift the right way using various drift initiation methods. Find out how to drift three ways--through acceleration, deceleration, and weight transfer. But first, you'll need to learn to do donuts.
Then, do you ever find yourself thinking that drifting is only for the young? Think again. Watch as James' grandfather, racing icon Bob Bondurant, takes Calvin's 240SX for a spin around the Bondurant track to prove you're never to old to drift.
