Up to this point, in any event. The car game of floating has risen into the spotlight subsequent to being begun years prior by underground clubs. These drivers are specialists at purposefully putting a vehicle into a slide and, instead of freezing, are made a decision about dependent on a few factors that a great many people would mark as being wild.



The inquiries around the game have developed from the level, "Why?" to "How?" "Where?" "Can any vehicle do this?" "Would l be able to attempt?"

Given the game's developing prevalence — and ClassicCars.com's choice to support Pro2 driver Andrew Schulte — I'll be composing stories amid the up and coming Formula Drift season to clarify everything from the general game to explicit scoring elements and how vehicles are built. Ideally, when the season's finished, you'll be a specialist.

For the principal portion of "FD 101" we're going taking a gander at the nuts and bolts: A touch of history pursued by how everything really functions.
