Writer and test driver Carl Merritt takes his Nissan 300ZX to drifting school as part of a larger all-about-drifting series of articles for Nissan Sport Magazine, published back in 2005. Part 1 of 3.

[Update, June 2012]
I'm amazed how many people are watching this video, about 500 per day right now, that's awesome! However please remember that this was from 2005, back when drifting was a new crazy thing from Japan, nothing like it is today. That car also went through many more modifications over it's life, including roll cage and turbos and road racing, until I sold it about 2 years ago when I got my 335D. At the time of this video the car, a 1990 2+2 I used for Autocrossing and open track days, still had the original NA motor in it with minor bolt-on mods (intake, exhaust, chip, underdrive pulley kit), say maybe 240HP at the crank, and standard upgraded suspension pieces (shocks/springs/sway bars). I'm not really answering any comments since this was 7 years ago and I'm pretty much out of the motorsports scene now, but regardless I'm very gratified that you all still enjoy the videos. Keep the shiny side up! -c
