Power sliding with a car

Power Sliding with a Car

Doing a power slide on a car is not as intense as drifting. It is the technique during which the car slides across around a turn after losing its traction with the road. A power slide is also known as drifting light as the driver simply slides the car out form the exit of a turn by allowing the tires to lose their grip. It is not very difficult to perform, just find an empty parking area or a private road and you can practice to do the power slide.
Follow the simple step-by-step directions:
Step-by-step directions
Step 1:
First of all, enter a curve or a turn while driving at a normal speed, thus allowing the car to reach the apex of this turn at a considerable safe and conventional speed.
Step 2:
Press the car’s throttle just as it passes the apex and the curve starts straightening out. At the same time, turn the steering wheel in the direction of the curve until you feel that the wheels are losing traction on the road.
Step 3:
Continue stepping on the gas as the car starts sliding crossways out of the curve, make sure to keep the front of the car directed at the straight part of the road ahead.
Step 4:
Remove the foot from the throttle when car’s front is pointing at the right direction. Wait till the car gains the traction again on the road before the throttle is reapplied. It should be noted that failure to remove the foot from the gas pedal at the exact right moment will cause the car spin out of your control.
Step 5:
Once the car faces the right direction and the tires regain traction on the road, reapply the gas. From that point, continue to the straightaway.
Step 6:
Continue practicing with the power slide in case you are facing problems with the car over-steering or spinning inwards. An empty parking space can be used and an alternate between steering the car in a turn with the gas pedal being pressed and removing the foot from the accelerator while the car regains traction. Every car is not the same so one need to learn the specific point at which the car will lose traction.
Additional Information
A Rally Driving Experience will give you an opportunity to practice power sliding. The reason power slides are important in Rally Driving is because it offers drivers the fastest way to get round a corner when time is critical. In addition, the road conditions underneath are quite loose gravel and dirt so there is not too much grip and it is easy for the car to slide anyway so being able to control the slide is also important.
Tips & Precautions
–    You can consider to make the road’s surface wet if you wish practice the technique, it will make the car easy to slide.
–    Practice and master the power slide technique before learning the drifting which is a lot more dangerous.
