Anyone see the new 2010 mustang drifting in japan?:facepalm:(link below)
Can a 2010 Camaro do better than that?

I would love to see what the new Camaro could do in drifting competitions. Yeah Vaugh Gitton is use to the Mustang so of course he makes it looks good. If the Camaro can drift as good as the old one that would be cool. The sound is amazing!

No, and I hope not.
Wheelspin has a place, and that place is not when you're cornering.

I hope I can see the camaro drifting! I would love to see that!

Camaro isnt going to drift as well, weaker handling response and more curb weight.





No it isnt a GT500.






And wheelspin around corners takes alot more driving skill than wheelspin in a parking lot

Of all of the pony/muscle/whatever cars, I think the mustang looks like dookie. Drifting is for little asian girls in nissans.

We did it first here in the USA... We called it the POWESLIDE.

Now, we just rip though the corners with VERY sticky tires.

Cool vids...especially the Camaro!...that's power.

Blacc Mamba 06-17-2009 04:59 PM

is it possible to drift camaro with auto/tapshift

patriotpa 06-17-2009 05:01 PM

With 400 HP? I don't see why it wouldn't powerslide. The question is, Are you sure you can control it? If not, will you mind all the damage when you crack it up?

Anything with enough power to spin the wheels has the potential to power slide....

...right off the side of the road

Nothing is stupider than a race that is judged by style points.

I just think it's funny how back in the day the little Asian cars had the rep for handling through the corners and the Americans were the ones powersliding and all that, now it's reversed.

Unless it's monster trucks, of course. :D

so out of all the drift-bashers in this thread - how many of you have actually drifted or tried to drift a car?

everytime i make a left turn in light rain thank you! :sm0:

patriotpa 06-19-2009 06:02 PM

Never. I prefer to be in control.

GatorBlue371 06-19-2009 09:42 PM

If your not in control while your drifting, your not drifting. Your sliding out of control.



Drifting is the controlled powerslide of your car.

We use to call it "Do`n 4 wheel powerslides." :burnrubber:

I`m not bashing drifting but I was wondering, quite a few years ago I was at the strip, blew my engine entering the traps (107 MPH) blew the block, oil everywhere, I slide to the right for what seems forever, then I slide to left for what seems forever, I finally come to an unscathed stop.(must have been my superior driving skills :sm0:) So my question is this, do I qualify as to actually have drifted or at least accidently tried drifting whether he wanted to or not? :burnrubber:

No .. not really.


I dont expect people on a Camaro Forum to have a great respect for people who can drift, but it takes a TON of control.


I know we have all seen this video, but all it really is is an impressive display of drifting.

no kidding...thank you for your enlightenment.

Not my style. Useless on the track. Dangerous as hell on the road.

...just showing off and wasting rubber.
