    Was out tonight with a few mates being lunatics on our private secluded roundabout. Was a good laugh with some pretty good drifting going on.

    The video shows my mate in his 200sx doing a couple of laps and just drifting wide the second time round and mounting the kerb. No major damage, the tyre came off the rim but the rim wasn't buckled. These 200sx's are pretty tough! :D

    Sorry about the video quality, but it is taken from a phone. Still not bad.

    would be surprised if the suspension isnt bent in some way after an impact like that. Good drifting until that point though :p

    200's are so the best car for cheap drifting. friend of mine has one, last rolling road of 310hp, doesn't really drift though as he doesnt want to throw away the money spent on it.

    Some pretty impressive drifting untill the impact :cool:

    Looks to me like he was starting to pick up too much speed, hence going wide and hitting the curb. Still, I can't talk :o
