Those older 911's throw in a whole load of other issues with their balance like a hammer.

^^ but let's not forget that for the accomplished driver it became a way to make difficult corners easy by deliberately inducing oversteer and then controlling it.

Just liek the "drift" cutlure does now but with a different raison d'etre

That incar video "qualifying in traffic" was amazing to watch. Huge balls.

As someone who enjoys drifting, I still don't see the point of calling it a "Sport" - If the winner is subjective I can't call it a sport (Which is where people liken it to syncronised swimming or ice skating).

But anyone that says "Drifting" doesn't take skill (Be it competition, racing (Like above) or just freeballing) are just talking about powerslides. and not "Drift" like below.

It's the relativeness of the scale of "skill" that's debatable
Done slow enoguh anyone can do synchronised driving.
Just put it on shitty rubber and it's not too hard.
BUT, to do it at higher speeds is taking some control

I Agree to a point, I don't think just "anyone" would be able to be nearly as synchronised as the team burst guys above.

Its amazing how much grip the cars closer to the top levels actually need to pull off their 190+KPH entries.

Search on what Russ Swift has been doing in everything from Mini to Rover 25s and even cough cough Montego
At slow speed it's easier - as I said.
BUT definately, to get that good takes practice !!

Done slow enough anyone can hit good lines in track racing.
Just put it on shitty rubber because it doesn't matter, at slow speeds you're not ruining any tyres any way...
