all in all i had a good time and not very much damage so im not to mad.. kinda freakin out b4 i realized my neon is beast and didnt have much damage :D i love my tough lil neon!!

so anyways here is the story:
i was drifting around all day on cement and decided to mess around on some muddy dirt roads.. first turn i take on the dirt road i was doing fine on the 90 degree turn until the exit.. i was going to far to the inside so i turn away some more (bad idea) i over corrected and slide about 15-20 ft into the ditch :(... i waited about 45 min for my buddy with a durrango to come and pull me out.. all he had was some thick ass wire from his garage so we tied her up and pulled her out :D i have a new love for my neon now!!

exactly how much power do you have in your neon to be doing a drift on cement or pavement, or was it wet pavement.

is the neon atx or mtx

Lmao same here man. Although I am kinda scared to do it now after I was 'drifting' and I spun out like 360 degrees and almost hit a light pole lol. Scary shit, good thing your car is okay.

So by "drifting" you're referring to drifting off the road ... right?

If only i could somehow get the video clip off of my phone of going 45 around an almost 90 degree turn lol ... that was fun!

lol i did this awesome powerslide around a 90* corner once! the inside of the corner also dipped a little and i had the perfect line of out side of beginnin road, inside to the clippin point where my tires slid thru the dip slightly, and then back to the out side where my rear passenger tire went slightly off the road, killer!

...did one i wasnt to proud of too. i was in a 4 lane road turnin onto another 4 laner that went uphill. after showin my friend next to me in his accord how fast i was i started a slide from the farthest outside lane to slide thru and into the road i was headin to before i even reached the road, it was awesome line! then as i reach the road, a eclipse in the inside lane pulled up!!! well i was already in motion...so my years of "practice"/goofin off came into affect immediatly! i quickly saw that if i didnt constantly work my line, angle, and speed i would kiss bumpers and rip them off and maybe carry the ecpilse to the curb with me! well i had fun playin with the throttle, steerin wheel angle, and the ebrake kept movin up and down tons! wow...well i did it! i literally missed the car by inches! i have 2 witnesses, the accord and a friend in the passenger seat. i ended up missin the bumper and slidin right up beside the car and just kept on truckin out of there tryin not to freak out about my luck and immense stupidity...lets just say i have not done anythin like that since then, only empty parkin lots!

haha i dont complain about street racers at all.. others do..

and it is easy to do you just go into a corner and pull the e brade.. it will take a couple of tries to get the timing down and if you have drum rear brakes then it will seem like it doesnt work if you dont pull it hard and fast.. good luck :lol:

It also works better if your power steering is good. Not sure how well it would turn out if you didn't have it. By the way, if you get fast food trays from say mcdonalds....drive on them with your back 2 tires and yank the ebrake up and just floor it.....thats fun too :D Oh I can't wait for winter....
