    Video: Answering that age-old question, can you drift while being tazed?
    1408665840

    Many people tolerate a lot of distractions while doing their jobs and still get things done. Chris Forsberg is a veteran drifter who is very accomplished at his profession, but the question is: just how good? Forsberg's stripped car doesn't have any incoming texts, but there is a guy next to him ...

    Exclusive: Behind the scenes of BMW's 'Drift Mob,' Part 1
    1403967480

    Generally speaking, marketing and journalism don't mix, but every now and then, what goes into the marketing of a car – the 2015 BMW M235i, in this case – is worth documenting. In that spirit, we took BMW up on its offer to bring us behind the scenes of its upcoming "drift mob" video, ...

    Video: Watch this lead sled go rallying in Finland
    1403222340

    Custom cars generally fit into neat little boxes in terms of how they are used. For example, you're unlikely to see a modded Corvette going rock crawling; it's just not what it's made for (though we bet it'd look awesome, at least for a minute). In the same way, chopped, channeled and customized ...

    Video: Mr. Millen goes to Washington
    1403195460

    Ever driven around DC? We have. And let us tell you, people drive like jerks in the nation's capital. Mostly because they think they're more important than you, and they're probably right. But Rhys Millen is out to put them all to shame. In this latest video, the guy who Red Bull refers to as a ...

    Video: Mike Ryan drifts a 200,000-pound dump truck
    1399998720

    Some vehicles are better suited for drifting than others. Light weight, rear-wheel drive and a manual transmission make for a good hoonage platform, but that doesn't mean you couldn't get an all-wheel drive, automatic family sedan like, say, my mom's Passat into a four-wheel drift (which this ...

    Video: This is how Norwegian hipsters drift
    1383091200

    The Scandinavian Flick is a driving technique used mainly in rallying, but applicable in a number of racing disciplines, used to elicit some serious oversteer. There is much Scandinavian flicking going on in this professionally filmed video, shot on the closed roads of Norway. This slidey action ...

    Video: Semi truck drift gymkhana might not be the first, but it is big fun
    1372809540

    Everybody enjoys an entertaining drift gymkhana video, especially when it involves broken glass, exploding tires and crazy stunts. And who can fault such vehicular theatrics when the driver is piloting a 10,000-pound big rig with 1,100 horsepower? On that level, this six-minutes of tire carnage ...

    Video: Drifters shut down California highway while doing donuts
    1359505200

    As champions of both rear-wheel drive and the hand brake, we completely understand the compulsion to get sideways on occasion. Hell, there was a time when no vacant parking lot was safe from our hellion ways – but there's a difference between harming nothing but your own rear tires and ...

    Video: Ryan Tuerck introduces us to the Ultimate Game of Drift
    1354842180

    Ryan Tuerck has gone and put his own spin on the game of HORSE. Instead of shooting hoops, he and fellow Drift Alliance driver Chris Forsberg recently squared off in a series of drift challenges. Fail a challenge, get one letter of the word DRIFT. First person to spell the whole word loses. The ...

    Video: Red Bull Rube Goldberg machine uses Ram trophy truck, Hyundai Genesis
    1352768280

    Red Bull is one of those companies with its fingers in every corner of the sports world. It's easy to forget just how far those sponsorship dollars have spread since the brand's early days, but a clever new video showcasing some of the brightest stars of the Red Bull family is out to remind us ...

    Whether you follow the sport of drifting or not, you have to admit that it has taken off.

    Video: Kiwi ute drift goes all wrong, then all right
    1341187260

    A New Zealand man, for reasons only clear to himself, decides to attempt a Starsky & Hutch drift around a corner in a ute that can only kindly be described as vintage. With that opening, you're no doubt expecting the obligatory "of course it all goes wrong and he crashes." And that, indeed, ...

    Video: Drifting returns to its mountain roots... in Poland
    1329509640

    We'll be honest: We miss drifting. Not the polished, sponsor-laden, energy-drink soaked Formula D. We miss the seedy internet shaky-hand cam videos of Japanese drivers slinging their hand-built machines up the mountain side in the middle of the night. Poland, of all places, has sought to marry ...

    Video: Pair of Toyota GT86s duel in parking lot drift battle
    1328576460

    There is likely no end to the amount of fun one can have with an empty parking lot, a few cones and a willing vehicle. Add two capable machines to the mix and the enjoyment increases exponentially. When those happen to be two Toyota GT86 coupes, all that's missing is the not-so judicious ...

    Video: Vaughn Gittin Jr. almost out-drifted by RC car
    1327971660

    We've finally come to accept the fact that we'll never be Vaughn Gittin Jr. There can be only one one pure-bred drift hooligan of his caliber on this planet and truth be told, our sideways skills are paltry at best. That doesn't mean we can't pretend, though. Gittin Jr. has teamed up with a ...

    Video: Watch this Nissan 240SX roll during a drifting exhibition
    1327607880

    Probably the less said about this video, the better. According to the video uploader, the event takes place during the "Still Ballin' Car Club Nite Out" (yes, really), but we aren't sure if it's a proper race or just for show. Heck, we can't even figure out where the event took place. At any ...

    Video: Nissan-wielding Bloodmasters wreak havoc on Raceway Park
    1327105740

    At some point, drifting made the shift from counterculture revolution to the sponsor-laden vehicular equivalent of figure skating. We're not sure when it happened, but we certainly miss the days of watching grainy videos of mountain pass heroes piped over from Japan. The Bloodmasters crew seem to ...

    Video: Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle 2 debuts, someone called the cops
    1326502740

    We all know sideways is slow. Kicking the tail out and sending the rear tires blazing may take a heaping helping of skill, but it won't win you any races. That doesn't make it any less awesome, however. Icon has gone through the trouble of crafting yet another drift battle between motorcycle and ...

    Video: Scion FR-S turbo spotted testing at Laguna Seca
    1325617260

    It looks as if Scion may be hard at work on a new turbocharged FR-S prototype. Motor Trend nabbed a quick video of what appears to be a forced-induction version of the coupe darting around Laguna Seca. With its tall wing and sideways antics, the vehicle is likely being put through its paces by ...
