Yeah he is pretty good, I don't remember who posted that a month ago, but it is still a badass video. I watched it again. I don't think i would do that with my camaro though. Hard on a car.

While I want to learn how to drift my Camaro, that is a little too intense for my skill level/budget.

thank God for AWD. without it, he never could've pulled off some of those drift angles.

and yeah. this is like the second or third time somebody's put it up. still a good vid.

From personal experience, I can say high HP AWD cars can do some crazy things, and can hold some crazy drift angles...

wicked! I didn't know you could do tight donuts with awd. I guess the 500+ whp helps with that.

hey.... are there any race schools teaching drifting?
