Whether you're planning a weekend, surprise your spouse, a company vacation or to fulfill your own dreams, XS Drift School offers a variety of Drift courses & fun, motorsports activities. You can choose what best suits you and your budget; 1 day of fun drifting or maybe an intensive course to become an expert drifter... whatever is on your mind, we can ensure an unforgettable, lifetime experience.
Our Course is a +-3 x hour course depending on your tyre usage! We supply the tyres that you will be burning up, and of course you will learn to drift in our purpose built Chevrolet Lumina’s that you may have seen at the various motorshows around SA.
An orientation and demonstration from our instructors will familiarise you with the cars and you will be taught to steer the car using the throttle. Initially you may find yourself spinning the car as you deliberately provoke power oversteer, but don’t worry as this is part of the course! You will then learn how to kick the tail out and hold the slide by balancing smooth steering and throttle inputs. There are few feelings more satisfying than controlling a massive tyre-melting drift and the ‘grin factor’ is simply off the scale!
It includes, a short Briefing, and instruction on:
* What to expect when drifting: oversteer and understeer
* How to set up a drift car - basic
* Driving preparation and tips
* The do’s and don’ts
We will show you and guide you on different angles to be taken into a power-slide or a drift as you know. The skills and activities will entail driving dynamics around the sideways craze, and you will get into the car and put into practice what you have been taught; this will enable you to get the basics of how to DRIFT a rear-wheel drive car solo.
WHEN YOU DRIFT, YOU LEARN TO CONTROL YOUR CAR EVEN WHEN YOUR TYRES ARE ALL SLIDING AND SPINNING INSTEAD OF GRIPPING.
Drifting is not always the fastest way to drive around a corner or curve, but it is the most exciting way!
We like it dry. We like it hot. We like it cold. We like it wet. But most of all...we like to drive sideways!
Drifting is an all-weather sport.
To get the most out of your drifting experiences, we have tailor-made courses for basic instruction for the core skills that you will have fun trying out on our SKID/DRY pan. From donuts to figure-8's to advanced drift skills; we teach all...
Pop open an energy drink and enjoy...here we go!
