you locked up your rear wheels which in turn made your rear come lose and you drug it behind you... if you where to say, sway your car back and forth and let the roll of your car swing your rear sideways, then it is less of an ass drag, but an ass drag non-the-less...

Dirt roads are fun to practice this on, I got it down to an art in my corsica cause the corsy had horrible body roll which just pwnz for drifting ;)

What you do is take trays and put them under you back wheels and pull your e-brake up....then drift away...don't do it though you could get hurt:ughcool:

Drifting is the process of going in a different direction that your wheels are pushing you... Example, when drifting in a RWD car, the rear wheels are pushing horizontal to the direction of your front wheels, however you continue to go forward.

However, you can not drift in a FWD car. This is because the front wheels are pulling you. And although your rear end is out, your wheels are still facing the direction you are going, and not horizontal. Hense, you are not drifting, you are in a semi-controlled power slide.

Example #2: Drifting can be done on a series of turns one after another changing direction. With a FWD car, you can not keep a series going. You can only take one turn before having to straighten out the car.

As stated before you cannot drift in a FWD, you can POWERSLIDE, and yes for one turn it will feel and look alot like drifting, but it is not drifting. Like Smokin said you have to straighten your car out after a turn with FWD
