If you're using it for something that's only going to see the track, go for it (post vidieos, please). I can't imagine living with that kind of noise with no syncros for everyday driving.

Drifting, though considered by some to be nothing more than a form of automotive figure-skating, does require a lot of control and precision (both in driving skill and suspension set-up). Though it should be considered that drifting does have practical applications in motorsports. In rally racing (seen in LOL's third video), drifting is essential when most of a rally takes place on surfaces with little or no traction. In this situation, controlling a sliding car becomes key to winning.

Oh I get how drifting is used in many motor-sports as my step father raced midgets for like three decades. We even have a bit of the flat track motorcycle racer scene still going on in mid Ca. But drifting as a solo sport still leaves me wondering why. Anytime you have to use judges and scoring in motorsports I just have to scratch my head. Call me old fashioned but I think motorsports, think racing not build judging or the like, should be about time based competition. Heck, I still enjoy flat-tracking my dirtbikes as I do not hit moto-x tracks and the like anymore, just two-track and some single-track around Nor Cal.
