Drove a 740i
so my friend let me drive his 740 on a short section of highway 1.

i see him drifting that thing all the time. never understood how..cause it takes alot of effort in both of my 3's.

holy shit. basically its plug and play in a sence. you just tkae a turn, second gear and gas. car is sideways. let it go through the turn and let the wheel go. your good.

that car has enough torque to take me to the moon. So..basically that car is the easiest thing to drift ever. and if you dont want it sideways just dont use gas in a turn..lol. man...i know why he likes the car so much now.

thought i would share.

of course this was done safely only drifting in corners where you could see around the turn, to make sure no cars were coming. :tup

bald tires, tc off or on?

Numark318i 09-11-2007 10:19 PM

DSC off, otherwise the cars a cadilla and wont budge.

tires are half thread, I think they are michelins or something of that nature.

What year 740i? Is it a sport with a lsd?

Numark318i 09-12-2007 01:19 PM

But it still leaves two tire marks

celsdogg 09-12-2007 03:08 PM


wouldnt it only leave one tire mark if it was an open diff?

Numark318i 09-12-2007 05:41 PM
