I manage with a controller just fine. You can use a steering wheel if you want as they improve control but personally I find them weird... they're either too sensitive or too unresponsive.

Joystick:

You need to master every possible position you can set the joystick, both steering and throttle. In throttle, you need to know all the possible throttle positions between rest and flat-out. I.E. mastering 5% acceleration, 10% accel etc. When it comes to steering, that depends entirely on the car. You need to know your car's limit to master the joystick. You need to know exactly when the car will start to lose it. It's not easy to drift in this game, and you need to learn A LOT to get it.

Tuning:

I could go into great detail, had my copy of GT4 been working. But here are some quick tips off the top of my head:

Mods:
Racing Exhaust
Racing Brakes
Brake Controller
Stage 2/3 Turbo [depending on the car]
Racing Suspension
Sports Soft Tires
Sports Hard Tires

Tire Tuning:
- Front Tires: Soft
- Rear Tires: Hard

In drifting, the objective is to get the rear tires to lose grip. By fitting a less sensitive compound tire to the rear tires, you can be sure to get some fishtail action.

Brake tuning:
- Front Strength: 3
- Rear Strength: 24

By being able to lock the rear tires first, you lose grip at the end of the car. When turning, the car should be able to fishtail. But beware, if you do not apply torque to the tires [via acceleration] you will spin out. Get the rear out, then control it with some countersteer and about 60% power.

Here's a step-by-step guide to drifting:

1) - Turn in before the corner approaches

2) - Brake

3) - Ease the throttle in from around 20%

4) - Start counter-steering

5) - Apply 100% throttle in quick, controlled bursts (tap the throtte stick forward every second) and continue countersteering

6) - Continue countersteering and floor it at the end of the turn.

Most common mistake in drifting is that people tend to get very throttle-happy during the drift, and so they spin out.

Car choice is very important too. I recommend a 1990 RX-7 or a 1986 Toyota Corolla Sprinter TRUENO AE86.
