Exclamation Drifting Civic in Snow!!!

Hey, I'm from Toronto and it snowed already, so i decided to take up drifting and try some stuff.

The only way I use rite now is useing the e-brake, is that bad for the car?

So I went drifitng tonight with a few buddies got into a small street with some snow, I didn't notice there was a patch of ice my back tires skidded on the ice and my car hit a curb at around 20 - 30Km, DOES THAT screw up Alignment?

I'm still a rookie at drifting, help would be much appreciated!!

Thanks...

you are going to get flamed for this... just to warn you...

but i would get it checked... cuz it can really damage your car hitting a curb at almost any speed.. so my advice to you, dont drift a civic cuz its stupid and dangerous... unless you are in a big open parking lot with lots of fresh snow...

hey don't stress it man. I've drifted my civic many times in the rain, never tried it in the snow though. You can't control the car in the snow that well with front wheel.... anywho, 20-30km..... if ur car doesn't wobble after that ur fine, but u'll have to replace the wheel bearin though "just change out the whole hub"


as for u ****s flamin on the poor guy, GET A ****IN LIFE. if u don't got the answer to his question just leave it at that.

just check physically that everything is okay...

if you start to notice any weird noises in the area that you hit, then get a mechanic to check it out...

yea, that can't be good, and we all know we have show boated in bad weather just for ***** and giggles... but we all learn from those stupid mistakes, like yours, and we DO NOT repeat them! And I'm not trying to be mean, I "drifted" my old chevy blazer on OLD tires, the tire came off the rim and I grinded at 30mph into a curb, that = totalled blazer. And what did I learn? Don't do that ****! ...aaaaaand, totalling your old Blazer gets you a NEW civic:-D

Drifting equals scrapping your car
I wonder if anyone remembers me plowing my civic in a 4 foot snowbank while drifting causing alot of dammage

sigh..but its not really drifting..your just kinda sliding...no?
lol..relentless its fun, but i wouldnt in a civic. I dont even want to try it with my civic. Maybe if i had a sht winter beater..
Last winter, with my moms CR-V, at a turn, i went to a complete stop..turned the wheel a bit..and just floored it..now THAT was fun...
But if you really love drifting that much,maybe you should learn more about it. If you can, download "The Drift Bible" By Keichi Tsuchya(sorry if i spelled his name wrong...he is the DRIFT GOD) Its been said he can drift pretty much any FR car..and it teaches you lots of techniques of how to drift..on dry roads...hehehe..and buy yourself a cheap FR ! So yeah, educate yourself about it more, instead of monkey see monkey doing.

Why drift? I don't get it, you actually go through the turn slower than if you just drove through it properly (I'm not flaming just advising). If that's how you get your jollies though hit an open parking lot like everyone else said and keep my streets safe. If you really want to learn some cool cornering manouvers to smoke all of your drifting friends check out bob bondurant's racing school or skip barbour's. As far as your freelander your local lr dealership should have a wheels event every quater to show you how to have the most fun with it on the trails and in the mud.(I work for the one here) it is awesome.
