There are two common techniques that racing riders often start drift: using clutch and braking. Drift almost always requires rear-wheel drive vehicles, front-wheel drive vehicles can also be used but very rarely. By the way the drift starts with the clutch, when the driver approaches the crab, he will kick the car and return it at 2. Then he will pedal the engine to about 4500 rpm.

When he releases the clutch will create a huge traction for the wheel because the engine rotates too fast. The sudden increase in traction caused the rear wheels to spin so quickly that the wheel spins on the road surface, the back of the car turns back to the crab. With basic braking technique, the driver pulls the hand brake abruptly when he enters the cornering, causing the rear wheel to brake and lose the grip, starting the drift.

The brake-start drift is one of the techniques that you can use for front-axle vehicles. For rear-wheel drive vehicles, there are dozens of drift skills, and professional riders often use a combination of skills at every bend.

Once the drift is started, the really hard part of the sport is just beginning. Keeping the drift running instead of losing the loop drive requires a lot of practice. Professional drifters combine the throttle control and feel the steering wheel to control a drift, not allowing the vehicle to go straight, regain the grip of the vehicle and glide slowly through bends.

The most superfluous hands can maintain drift of several continuous circles. These are high-level drift skills. These riders can perform diverse skills once after others maintain excessive control of the drift screen. In the next section, we can recheck the skills you can see on professional racing tracks.
