I'm with thrillkill. What's the point?? Ruin good tyres. Pointless.
To go as fast as possible around a track the wheels should not be spinning at all.
Spinning wheels (burning) can serious dragracers be doing.
"Drifting" is for very young drivers with Japaneese cars, not sensible drivers with Mercedes.
First of all, drifting is a matter of like to do it or not. You like to go as fast as possible around a track, others like to run the 400meters as fast as possible, and some others like to drift.
Second, 'drifting' is not done with 'good' tyres. If you drift with your good tyres, you're or very rich and don't give a damn, or just very stupid. If you drift, you put on old crappy tyres which you can find anywhere for free.
Drifting is for very young drivers with japaneese cars, not for 'sensible' (?) drivers with a mercedes???? Since when does the car you drive determine how sensible you are? You would have got a point if you said that in Japan, the drifting 'culture' is much more developped than in other places. Some mercedes cars are very suitable for drifting, they are easy to control and predictable.
You have obviously no objective point to make regarding this subject, you write YOUR OPINION as if it were a fact.
