Johneboy82 I saw your drifting vid and wanted to post a big long comment but didn't want to fill the videos thread with Forza drifitng talk so here goes
So for someone who is apparently "learning to drift" you're actually doing really well, far better than I was for a good year or two when I was first learning to drift back in Forza 4 and absolutely cleaning the floor with Nos. You're doing especially well considering your two drift cars are an Evo (without an engine swap!) and a Volvo 242 Turbo, both of which, IIRC, haven't got particularly great engines for drifting.
So here are where the questions start.
What kind of tune setup are you running and can I see it? Did you tune it yourself or get someone else's? What steering setting do you use?
If you want to learn more about drifting setups and good spots to drift (as well as get tunes from a damn good tuner) check out MrAeroHD on youtube. There a lot of Forza youtubers who have no idea what they're doing when it comes to drifting but pretend otherwise. Aero, on the other hand, used to run in FMDL (Forza Motorsport Drift League) back in the FM4 days and recently has come back to competitive drifting with ESDL (E-Sports Drift League) so he knows his stuff.
Blade died for our sins I don't really build drift cars. I get a car, tune it then try to drift it. The only thing I really change is how low it sits and the gearing to give a longer ratio in certain gears. The Volvo has an engine swap to a 3.2 Inline 6 Turbo and tuned up to around 760hp. Yes the Evo hasn't had an engine swap. I wanted it kept around an S1 Class car That has been converted too RWD but is kicking out around 600hp.
