DN 3/3/12: Beginner's clinic

Not registering until I get back from VIR
Sway is like a race horse; if you push it sometimes, it's ok, but if you are hard on it all the time, then it's going to break its ankle and then you will have to shoot it.

You can learn a lot without coils! It forces you to throw the car around a LOT more, which is fun!

I drifted for 2 years on stock suspension. Just go out and have a good time! Any way you drift is a learning experience.
