Drifting is the newest, most exciting motorsport we have seen in the United States since the invention of the limited slip differential - it may even be the most exhilarating contest man and machine ever devised!

From the winding mountain passes and desolate industrial roads of Japan, this unique sport of sliding a car sideways through a series of corners has become a huge hit in America. Drift, or dorifto as they call it Japan, extracts the most exciting portion from various forms of auto racing - the four-wheel drift - and makes it the focus of an extremely intense and visually intoxicating new motor sport.

How to Drift: The Art of Oversteer is a comprehensive guide to both driving technique and car setup. The author explains various styles and methods of drifting, and provides technical physical descriptions and detailed line art and photos. He goes on to explain how you need to modify your car's suspension, chassis, engine, and driveline to enhance its ability to drift.

This book contains more than 350 photos and detailed line drawings.
