PostHeaderIcon Car Throttle Gets Technical About Getting Sideways: Video

The term “drifting” gets thrown around a lot these days. Hell, some manufacturers will even add it as a specific driving mode. But what is drifting really, and how is it different from any other form of ass-out oversteer? Car Throttle decided to drill down and figure it out in this nine-minute, 51-second video. Commence the tire smoke.

At the heart of the video is the difference between powersliding and drifting, which is explained by Car Throttle’s resident “Driving Badass” Alex Gassman as such – “drifting is everything you do on the way into a corner and powersliding is what happens after the apex.”

Sounds simple enough. Playing the part of tire killer for this demonstration is BMW’s M2 coupe, which manages to kick out the rear with ease thanks to the 365 horses provided by a front-mounted turbocharged six-cylinder. It also looks pretty good doing the whole sideways in slo-mo thing.

Gassman not only demonstrates both types of oversteer, but also provides some helpful hints if you wanna try it out for yourself at your local closed course. Of course, if you do decide to explore either drifting or powersliding, make sure you do it legally in a safe, controlled, environment.
