Question SUPER HICAS and DRIFTING

What is super hicas? I have talk to some people about it and they said it is like traction control, or something related to tradtion. If you want to make your 240 a drift car then you need to get the super hicas cancellor right? What does the cancellor do?

Thanks to all who reply!!

dont get me wrong but it just seems like Hicas will get in the way of a good drift.... but for grip driving it mite be an advantage

ive got hicas and my car grips like a ****, but it takes a lot more to get it to drift. i have had issues with it when in a drift cuz it seems like it tries to correct you out of an oversteer, and when exiting it throws the car hard the other way, but other than its been great. LOTS OF FUN IN THE RAIN!!!

Is the HICAS on the S13 the same as the Z32, where it would do a quick opposite steer (to move the weight) before the wheels would go into a same-way steer as the fronts?

If so, I would think that in a way maybe HICAS is helpful in drifting, since it helps with weight transfer.

That or it's late and I'm half-asleep.

Anyone?

basically, hicas is only moving the wheels at most around 2-3 degrees... the only hicas i have ever felt on my car is on our mini touge runs where iam taking some curves at a pretty high speed... other than that i really havent felt hicas doing anything to me when it comes to drifting...

Well since the point of drifting is to break the rear end loose anyways, I doubt you would feel HICAS doing anything since it's not even gripping the pavement, compared to touge IMO.
