Sliding in the rain.
So it's about 8:00-9:00pm and it's raining out, moderately hard. Me and a few friends went for a bite to eat at Wild Wings cafe, it was three of us total and we all rode in my car. We had a good time at WWC (I thought), the food was good and the company was great. It wasn't some huge ass group with headaches lurking around every corner. We finish up relatively quickly so we start heading back to the university. Earlier that day I was asking my friend about drifting and he showed me in his 300ZX and so I asked him if it would be possible to do so in a FWD vehicle. He said yes it was, he was sitting in the backseat and the other friend in the front as we were driving back. We come across an empty turn into the main road that slightly goes downhill. I thought to myself HHMMMM..... DRIFT! So I hit the gas, held the e-brake and took off into the main road. At first nothing happened and I was like wtf? Then I turned the wheel to help the car gain an angle and before I knew it I had over steered about 70 degrees from when I started out and was like OH SHITLOL. My tires were skidding over the slick road and the tires sliding sounded so badass. So I return the e-brake and hit the gas again to drive off, like a boss. My heart was pounding because this was my first time ever trying to drift and with a FWD vehicle on top of that. All was good and I felt like a boss until .... *WHOOPWHOOP* flashing lights ...
