The very popular RC drifting returns to Pistahan for its second year! Here's how Wikipedia describes R/C drifting:
"R/C drifting or "radio-controlled drifting" refers to the act of drifting with a radio-controlled car (R/C car). … Drifting is a driving technique where the driver intentionally oversteers, causing loss of traction in the rear wheels or all tires, while maintaining control from entry to exit of a corner. When a car is drifting … the front wheels are pointing in the opposite direction to the turn (e. g. car is turning left, wheels are pointed right or vice versa). As a hobby, radio-controlled drifting originated in Japan."
Here's R/C drifting in action!
