Introduced in the Japan in the 80s, drifting has come a very long way since then. In its early days in Japan, it was usually done in street races and it was not as popular amongst people who saw it as a very unsophisticated thing to do. In today’s day and age, drifting is now considered as a competitive sport, and is done at huge levels in countries like the US, Ireland and New Zealand. Later on, we started seeing drifting in Hollywood action movies like Fast and Furious, from where it started becoming a trend. If you are interested in drifting, you have to right place because we will let you in on everything you have to know about it.
Not The Cheapest Thing To Do
It might cost you roughly $25000 per year if you are thinking of doing it frequently, and entering yourself in races. People usually buy second hand cars, and then they have to spend a lot of maintaining it throughout the year. If you are aware of the expenses that come with it, then you are probably willing to make the investment and then enjoy the fun that comes with it. In a lot of the cases, you will end up buying parts at good prices, and even the cars.
Get Down in The Dirt
Drifting is not the cleanest motor sport, but we are assuming that you are already aware of it since you are considering it. Not only will your car be covered in mud but so will you. It is not the mud you have to worry about, you will probably end up getting greasy as well because you will have to check under the hood every time something will come up. But drifters tend to like this aspect of drifting as well, along with the whole adrenaline that comes with it.
