The plan is simple: do some research talk with some experts and practice until the wheels fall off i’ve reached out to some well known, rc drifters, to help create a bunch of challenges increasing in difficulty level that i’ll need to master throughout the day i reached out To rc drift talk for advice and like a true sensei, he had me master the basics first, starting with drifting circles around a cone seriously, that’s way too easy for me, Music or not. I quickly realized my first challenge, wasn’t just about making circles around the cone. It was about learning the car learning the steering inputs and, most importantly, throttle control. After about a half an hour of practicing, i finally started to get it down. It was time to move on to challenge number two for the next challenge: i’ll be mastering figure, eight, which should be easy, but apparently my drift skills are equivalent to a 90 year old, blind dog. After an hour of practice, i was starting to look like. I knew what i was doing but being in the garage so long. I needed fresh air, so i ended up finding this perfect spot right at the beach i’m, not sure if it was the fresh air, but it seemed like everything was starting to come together and i was really nailing the figurines two things that i definitely need to Work on is my throttle. Control i’m. Definitely flipping throttle a little bit too much and the other thing is my steering input when you’re drifting, you don’t, want to steer too much you kind of want to just steer with the throttle, rather than the steering wheel, but overall we’re, looking pretty good, so we’re On to challenge number three, the next challenge i got from rc drift talk he’s an absolute legend for this, but i knew that i would have to try this one as well.
So i grabbed some cardboard and got crazy and my first attempt went exactly how i thought it would and so did the next one. Then the wind decided it hates me and after a bunch of other tries this happened after some more practice. I was able to hit the turkey of drifting three in a row and here’s a behind the scenes shot and just like that, we’re on to challenge number four. I got the next challenge from rc lion. You have to drift the car by a ledge, so it’s close to falling off, but it doesn’t, which obviously requires more skill than i currently have so time to start practicing. You know what they say: third time’s, a charm, Music nope. I could have easily edited the video to show that third time’s the charm, but i figured i would show you guys how much effort really went into this video and learning how to drift, and after all these fails, i finally got it challenge. Number five is from rc drift talk again it’s pretty self explanatory. He calls it the drift park. The issue that i had with this challenge was that i got so used to drifting around something that i just wanted to keep going around the cars rather than park. It i started getting the hang of it here and i end up getting a little bit too far out. Oh Music, that looks pretty good let’s check it out. That is good we’re, not touching let’s go.
We did it nice. The last challenge will be the culmination of all the skills i learned today, my own indoor drift track. I call it mykana after the famous gymkhana Music it’s, amazing, to think i couldn’t drift around a cone earlier, but it just goes to show if you practice and put your mind to it.
