Need for Speed: Carbon Discussion
Well, getting familiar with the drifting mechanism is the imperative thing. I wouldn't jump the gun and go straight for the canyon drifts firstly. Everyone needs to learn basics first - on the drift TRACKS. Canyons are for the big boys only.
How do you get familiar? Well it isnt a cut-and-dry situation. There are many factors involved in getting a good score on drifting. Tuning is one. Here is the recommended setup for drifting. When purchasing performance mods, set the mods on these settings:
Engine - Set it on full torque
Transmission - full acceleration
Suspension - full oversteer
NOS - full velocity
Tires - Drift
Brakes - Evenly biased (middle)
Turbo - middle
Now, select a tier 2 tuner and set it up with these settings. In quick race mode, select Kimei Temple drift track in the downtown section. Then choose your tier 2 tuner in car select.
Now, you need to get a feel of the car when all the physics are thrown out of whack. Start off, and use NOS to propel yourself into the blue "speed bonus" zone. Aim for an overall score of 25,000. Then go for 50,000 , then 75,000 etc. Once you acheive 250,000 , you're all set for the canyon. the canyon works on the same principles of the tracks, with the exceptions of no bonus zones, a narrower and more difficult line to find and jutting rocks. These canyons are definitely no cake-walk, so its imperative that you focus on the tracks first.
Hope this helped .... its a straight cut and paste from my FAQ, which if you wanna see, click here: Link Although its for PS3, the majority of the stuff is universally console-friendly.

And to the challenge series drift, i vaguely remember that i got over 1.5 mil. Beat that. Took me one try.
xtlx, the drift scoring mechanism is the same for ALL consoles. The faster you go, and the less you fishtail (the lower the angle of drift) the better you'll do.
DriftNable, looks like my advice works. Practice and perseverance makes perfect. Keep on going... and keep up the good work! remember once you reach 250k, then you are officially "good" at drifting.
The REAL DK has spoken
alright chingy I give up lol... you win... but I did get in the low 1mils yesterday... didnt screenie it cause it didnt beat you.
that was a fun challenge, and I'd like to say I'm sorta a pro drifter :P
