Is it actually possible to drift Mini Zs like Initial D style?
go to my site, link is at the bottom of my post...go to the videos section, and it should be the 2nd video from the top...it's my drifting video...check it out....

cool video... liked the music from hardknox as well...
checked out your other video's at the skatepark as well... cool :D
Thanx!! The drifting video was my first attempt at digital merging/editing/cutting. The Skatepark Highlight video process came to me a little better. Thanks though, means alot!!!

hey, try my site the movies section..... it's a 6mb movie with no sound, but you can see some pretty cool drifting moves....

Do you guys use certain drift setups?
well, not really. The car in my video was just a plain-stock mini-z. I've drifted my hopped-up Z, and it has a little bit more control, but probably mostly due to the softer tires.
Learn it stock first, then build your skills as you build your Z :)

i agree with russ...

Sounds very cool.
Another question: What is the ideal terrain (or conditions) to drift a mini Z? What kind of floor? And will hard tires on linoleum give some good drifting?
So far, the best luck I've had is on my hardwood floor, but it's not very slick. It's pretty old polyurethane, so it's worn down quite a bit. I used stock, crappy hard kyosho tires too.

I was talking with a friend who knows a lot about cars. In real world drifting, apparently it's easy to induce drift with RR (Rear engine, rear wheel drive) cars.
The Mini Z is RR, right? Does that mean it's easy to induce drift?

dugrant153, it's pretty easy with sufficiently bad tires. With practice, I think FR/MR/RR drift are all pretty easy to achieve. For some seriously cool 4WD drift, take a look at our sister site:

I've taken a look at how that Micro RS4 drifts... but that's an AWD car.
The Mini Z is a RWD... how would you begin to induce drift? (Holding it will take practice, for sure).

if u want to drift the Z, u just steer hard in the direction u wanna turn, then when u see the rear lean out, counter steer and ease off the throttle.... make sure that you're on a lower friction surface such as hardwood floor..... if you master it, you can make it drift really nicely and hold it for a while.....
oh, and if you want a drift pic, look at my website in the pictures and movies section.... the top pic is a drift pic. (I appologize for the bad bad bad bad quality....)
BTW, E-mail me if you want the movie.....
