Question Tips on faint drift

Hey i was wondering if you guys could give a couple tips on faint drifts. Recently I got my alignment done and the camber was reduced from -3 to -1.25 in the front. Now when I go to do my faints I loose front traction. any suggestions. I got an s13 fastback. Maybe I should just get camber plates and change the settings when I want to drift.
Any suggestions???

step on the gas.. on on on
just as you let off the weight transfers
to the front and turn in one direction
then Stomp on the gas and yank the
wheel back the other direction. ..

this all happens extremly fast and with a fluid motion

Yeah its when I yank the wheel back that I loose front traction. But also I step on the brakes alittle after letting off the gas, so maybe Im shifting to much weight to the front?

Thanks for the help guys.
