Default Matt Farah Attempts To Drift A 700hp 2JZ S15 Silvia

Chris Harris, he is not. He did NOT look like he was having fun out there. But that has to be so nerve wracking trying to drift someone elses car, especially one thats this freaking nice. This is no zip tied 240.

It's super hard to get used to driving a car that normally would be in the "fuck it" mode, but it has like 10x more steering to keep the car at a very uncomfortable angle. It's like, whelp, it's gone, I've lost control, and then there's so much more steering you can put into it. I dislike his videos on public roads, but his track videos are awesome. I wish he would focus more on those, cause it's not fun just watching him putt around on public roads in Cali, hoping to not do something stupid. He definitely doesn't like having to put the clutch in whilst pulling the "E-brake", he doesn't like having to think about things. Just shows how gifted real drifting drivers are. I mean real drifting drivers, not some ghey shit around parking lot.

Drifting is one thing that I admire but don't think I could ever master. It's difficult for me to fight what I've learned over the years to balance the car and to proactively correct oversteer in order to keep the car on line though a turn. Aside from a little bit of fun tail happiness from time to time, or an easier slide in rain or snow, drifting just isn't one of the things I am likely to be capable of ever doing well. So I'll stick with being able to turn fast laps and let myself enjoy watching the drift guys do their own thing.

matt is definitely not chris harris. he's been going to gingerman for years yet he always blows the blend line on track entry, i think it's in every single video he does. he's not going to be putting down fat drifts or hot laps in anyone's car though. he's a nice guy and his reviews are interesting but in terms of driving skill he doesn't appear to be much different than a lot of us potatoheads

Seriously. Im definitely not knocking him for the attempt. I've certainly never tried drifting in real life. I can barely do it in a video game So Im certainly not gonna be taking my car out and trying to hoon about, let alone trying it w/ someone ELSES baby.

I wouldn't even attempt to "drift" in someone else's car, especially one that clean And all I'd be doing is getting it sideways here and there, I would be far from drifting. I'll stick with the fastest way around the track. Real competitive drifting is fun AF to watch.
