Question bout my drift technique

well, like many others on this forum im pretty new to drifting.ive been tryin to practice as much as possible in the snow , rain and once in awhile ill attempt it on dry pavement. i noticed when i repeatedly try clutch kicking or over rev in a gear around a long corner my clutch almost feels like its sticking and feels as if its not engaging right away. the rpms wind up but the car feels as if its in neutral then it kinda feels as if it slowly engages.i replaced my clutch last month.im thinkin im windin the motor out to much for to long?after the car cools down the clutch feels fine.could this be wearin the clutch out to fast or could there be a problem with my differential?if so....whats wrong with my technique.how can i help correct this problem so im not destroyin my car?thanks guys.

What brand clutch do you have?

I believe your clutch is heat soaking. So that the engagment and disengagment its higher that normal.

Then when you let it cool off it returns to normal.

I wont hurt the car but it gets annoying after a while.

Next time upgrade instead of replace.

also i had a cery similar problem after i changed my clutch. It sounds silly but try and adjusting your clutch pedal.

i know, I know but that was all it took to stop mine from slipping. Also did you turn your flywheel when you changed the clutch? It may be glazed over

Why are you clutch kicking thru a turn? Why not work on a faster entry speed............

Catch me on AIM if you want to talk it up.

Clutch is a good way to make the rear snap loose at any speed.
I still clutch kick.

Faster entry speed may be disasterous for some.

You are right. I am not argueing that a clutch kick is bad. But if you are doing 15mph trying to carry thru a turn a clutch kick will just break the rear and most likly bog.

You have to have some speed to get thru the turn.

re: sil40

to sil40drift

about the pressure plate if u are going to be doing serious drifting u have to upgrade past oem, a stock pressure plate can expload hurting u and the car. ( any pressure plate can expload by the way it depends on how much lbs of tq is across it )

i have a stage 2 act clutch in my car and its nice. but im doing a ca swap so i had to by another one ( exedy stage 1}. trying a lighten flywheel can also improve rev response and also i will prevent ur clutch from heating and fading fast.

also man do not perform shift lock ( downshifting and poping the clutch ) on dry ground unless u have lots of money to replace broken yokes and or transmissions and even ur motor. shift lock is a great way to break the tires lose but when operation on oem parts u will break some for sure.( if its an 89 like mine ) when its wet thats when u want to perform shift lock. also do dont always just pop the clutch u have to learn how and when to release it.

the next time u go out in the rain, try the shift lock technique apply different amounts of preasure when releasing


also most important try and develop ur own way of getting sideways, there are orthidox ways of drifting but just as boxing, every one has their own style
