Default Drifting?

I want to try and do some drifting in my 99 sse but I'm scarred I'm going to severly screw up something in my car. Does anyone have any advice or wisdom on the matter?

If i told you not to do it, I would be a hypocrite.

Anymore i dont do it in a car a care about. For reasons of flat spots on your tires, and the unwanted ware and tear. i wouldn't be worried about the axles. But more about wearing the back brakes out, streching the E-brake cable.

on any kind of loose surface, VERY easy if you play with the emegency brake, on sticky surfaces though, you have to have a LOT of speed and some horrible tires in the rear to break loose.

that being said, drifting(as a sport or competition) IMO, is one of the stupidest things to hit mainstream since spandex in the 70s and 80s.

Alright Jake,

You are starting to look like a douchebag, especially when you don't explain what happened.

Jon... lets not use that language on here.. those were some of the reasons u guys left w-body.
We appreciate ur expertise and advise, but leave that language and attitude at home. Many of us come to this site to gather and share info and to kick back and relax, not to hear high school bickering. Thank You
