    Question Handbrake drifting damage and Forge 007 issue

    Unmodified Audi A3 8L 1999 (Jetex conefilter and Dahlback DV). I want to practice stuff shown here How to Drift front wheel car - YouTube drifting with FWD, on wet roads of course. Will it damage my car other than wearing my tires out?

    Next question.
    I installed a Forge 007 DV. Took it for a 4 minute test drive. The DV sounded like this trubo whistle like in this video human car sounds - YouTube .After the test drive the car was standing still and when cluthing and slamming the gas pedal all the way the engine roared a bit up to 2.2 RPM and down to 1 again. Going like that, up and down. My dad said it sounded like the amount of air and gasoline was faulty. I was afraid of trying to drive around, just switched it off. Car worked fine again after Dahlback was installed again. A yellow and red spring came with the Forge 007 so I'm guessing the green one is in it atm.

    Other than putting your wheel bearings under more strain I can't see what damage that'll do to be honest. Just get a rwd car if you want to go drifting!

    Oh and obviously wearing out you're tyres like you said. They won't wear evenly though, unlike rwd drifting, as you're stopping the rear wheels, so you'll find that it'll make them go a bit square, so when setting off they won't be as smooth, and you may get wheel wobble at higher speeds much like a tyre that's gone out of shape.

    Lol. I cant believe this kid is for real.
    Well seen as you probably don't own your own track to practice which you don't as stated you will be doing it on wet roads.
    Lets see, broken alloy/wishbone etc from hitting kerbs.
    Fooked car from wrapping it into either:
    A. Lamppost
    B. Wall
    C. Stationary Car
    D. Ditch.
    Then loosing your license for reckless driving and depending how many people you injure or kill either a short or long jail sentence and then having to live with it for the rest of your life.
    It is idiots like you that give the rest of us a bad name and higher insurance premiums so do us a favour and F**K OFF.

    In Lista, Norway there's an airport out of buisiness. My grandfather has access to the air strip because he's on a digging project there. But even if I had no place to play moron you should calm your tits a bit. Thanks for your answer anyway. Still need help on the Forge thing.

    Go to McDs...try and purchase or 'borrow' 2 trays ;-)

    Then find some private land- reverse the FWD car so the rear wheels are on the trays.

    Yank handbrake up and voila - FWD drift car for you to enjoy :D

    Btw- I expect tie rod ends, suspension and all your bushes will need to be in a decent condition to start chucking it around like you want to - so expect those parts to fail if they're not.

    I want my own private runway
    Forge oo7p is just about as universally used on these cars as round wheels without any issues as long as it has a new style piston in it and doesn't leak. Even when installed backwards its not going to cause any big problems so I'd be having a look for a leak somewhere or trying to borrow a standard dv from someone and giving that a go. Whatever it is the forge vavle won't make your car go bang unless you manage to put it in a combustion chamber somehow

    Moral high ground aside here, surely everyone at some point in their driving life has pulled the handbrake whilst moving to induce some bad-ass skids of some kind?

    No?

    I have some sub woofers and amplifiers if you want to buy. I might have some Kenwood stickers I can throw into the deal too, if it's a deal breaker.

    EDIT: Ooh and in case you don't know - I think Halfords are doing a deal on Ripspeed gearknobs and 16v decals at the moment.

    you doing it wrong

    FWIW, FWD handbrake "drifting" is for gaylords. You need to be cool and power slide a FWD - LIKE A BOSS

    and if you good you can do a 360 or a 720 if you real good.




    if you not so good

    The handbrake on mine would never lock the rear wheels up it help it to slide I reckon, to be fair I have not tried but I have stopped for walking speed with it and it's a bit poor!

    Is it mapped? Pop the green spring in first, and make sure you plumb the dv correctly. Sounds like you've got some sort of leak and need to find it. Check that the DV isn't stuck open.

    and wait till it snows, I did the best drifts then!

    Thanks! Nope, no map.
