Item Description

From widing mountain roads and desolate industrial parks in Japan, the unique sport of sliding a car sideways has quickly become a huge hit in the U.S.

In How to Drift: The Art of Oversteer, author Paul Morton provides a comprehensive resource to both driving techniques and car setup with more than 300 photos and diagrams.

From the various styles and methods for starting and maintaining a drift using technical descriptions and live-action photos, he goes on to explain how and why you need to modify your car's suspension, chassis, driveline, and engine to enhance its ability to drift, accompanied by step-by-step photo sequences.

There's even a bonus chapter dedicated to swapping an SR20DET into a Nissan 240SX.

The Motor Bookstore is your one stop shop for automotive how to literature.
