+1,,Definitely NOT,,Although , As a Driver in Games, and Real Life, I CAN tell you it Will entirely Depend on Your Traction situation. Weather/Number of Drive Wheel's/Velocity etc..
Try this.. If your in a Closed track , e.g. NO other driver's Barreling Down on you, take the time to Pull up to a turn and See what it take's to Get it Sideways, this can also be done on a decent Straight away ,as well. In my experience, on Oval Track in Mini Stock, (with the Opposite Goal) to avoid Loss of traction, You Want to avoid Sudden Extreme Acceleration, or Shift's in Your G's. (G-Force). So you Simply need to Do the opposite, Position yourself @ 3/4 to the Outside of the track , coming into the Turn, Then just Before hitting it(the turn) , Steer Left/Right , and Apply Throttle. Then You Need to "Real time" Account for the Direction You Begin to head in, By Quickly Turning left/right (in SMALL amounts). Mostly, it's a "feeling" you'll begin to Get, as you Learn how the Vehicle reacts to this situation. Once that link between you and the Vehicle is made, It'll be like second Nature. So Basically, #1, Break Traction , #2 Don't Freak out, #3 Hold your Line, #4 Maintain RPM's, Last thing you want , is to Come out of a sucessful Drift, and Realize that you were SO concentrated on holding the line, that you are now either in Too low a gear , or are moving too Slow to Continue the drift. Once these Skill's are mastered , You Should be able to Hold a drift for an Entire Track. Also Find Which Class suites you best e.g. FF , FR, MR etc.. 4 wheel is Okay, But FR, is Easier IMO. Keep Trying, and You'll get it. Also ,,NOTHING you learn in a game, will translate into real life, please don't Carry Your "skill's" from GT5 to the real Street's. Have Fun.
