Different types of Drifting

?What are the different types of Drifting

There are two MAIN drifting techniques Every driver should know that

First Clutching technique
The first is called the clutching technique and is the preferred method for rear-wheel drivers. With the clutching technique, you shift the car into second gear as you approach the turns. You then rev the engine to between 4,000 and 7,000 rpm, depending on the car. With the engine revved, you turn the car hard into the turn and pop the clutch, causing the rear tires to spin and lose traction.To keep the car in the drifting motion until the next turn, you mustkeep your foot on the accelerator and make adjustments with thethrottle and steering wheel to prevent spin out. If you’ve managed to keep the car in control, you can then cut the wheel in the otherdirection and attempt to slide around the next turn in one smoothmotion. However, if you went into the turn too slowly, the car may
begin to regain traction
 Second Hand-brake technique
Because front-wheel driven cars cannot generate tire spin and traction loss at the rear  wheels, they require a second, alternative method of drifting: the hand-brake technique. While the clutching technique uses momentum and rear wheel torque to power the car through a set of drifts, the hand brake technique relies solely on momentum. Using this style of drifting, you would simply pull the hand brake as you approach the set of turns to cause a suddentraction loss. Since there is no driving torque involved, it is much harder to maintain the traction loss through multiple turns
using the hand-brak

 Other Techniques
Dirt Drop Drift
This technique is banned on most tracks. You allow the rear wheels to leave the tarmac surface into a lower grip one such as dirt, gravel or grass. The cars speed will remain pretty stable through this technique as the rear tyre friction is much lower.

Jump Drift
Similar to a Dirt Drop Drift again banned on most tracks. The rear wheels hit the rumble strip at the side of the track. The vibration is enough to upset the delicate balance of grip momentum and traction and the rear of the car slides.

Feint Drift
Requires a feel for the balance of a car and needs you to sense the shockwave of swing as it flows through the car. Coming up to a right hand bend you steer to the left. Then as the back of the car moves left you steer to the right, the back of the car loses traction and starts to drift, then you counter steer and catch the drift. This is a popular technique and is often combined with other techniques, like the clutch kick, to help break the rear traction. Practice this one in large open areas.

Inertia Drift 
This requires a lot of speed. Approaching a bend you need to decelerate throwing the weight of the car to the front wheels. When the back wheels become light you can steer the front into the bend and let the back wheels drift. Control is maintained with careful steering control and throttle inputs

Braking Drift
 This is performed by braking before a corner while starting to turn in, vary the brake petal until loss of grip is obtained and then balance the over steer through steering and throttle motions.

    Shift Lock 
 This is performed by letting the revs drop upon downshift into a corner and then releasing the clutch to put stress on the driveline to slow the rear tires inducing over steer.

  Side Brake Drift
This technique is very basic, pull the E-Brake or (side brake) to induce rear traction loss and balance drift through steering and throttle play.
