Item description for How to Drift: The Art of Oversteer (S-A Design) by Paul Morton...
Drifting is the newest, most exciting motorsport we have seen in the United States since the invention of the limited slip differential - it may be the most exhilarating contest of 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. Drifting, or dorifto as they call it in Japan, extracts the most exciting aspect auto racing, extreme oversteer, and makes it the focus of an intense and visually intoxicating new motor sport. How to Drift: The Art of Oversteer is a comprehensive guide to both the driving technique and car setup required for drifting. The author defines various precision driving techniques used in drifting and explains them from a racecar driver's point of view. How to Drift illustrates the finer elements of car control required in drifting with technical descriptions, detailed line art and intense photography.

Reviews - What do customers think about How to Drift: The Art of Oversteer (S-A Design)?
eh Mar 31, 2008
Not worth buying if you are trying to drift. Does give some information but no unique advice that can't easily be found elsewhere. It also says that the ae86 corolla has independent rear suspension, which is wrong.
so so book Mar 11, 2008
This is actually a decent book. It goes into the technical side of it along with the skill levels required for each different type of drift. Most of the information in this book will be realized with practice anyway. I do believe you could obtain the same skill level without tearing up as many tires :op.
MY SON LOVED IT Jan 5, 2007
I bought this for my son. He is interested in anything regarding Driving, racing and cars in general. I asked him how he liked this item and he said that "it was great". So, based on that, I would say if you have an older teenager or person in your life who is into cars, etc., this would be a good gift. And if for yourself, I can only tell you that my 17 year old son thought it was GREAT.
