5 today we are going to do another

forza

5 tutorial last time you guys saw me build this thing our gmc jimmy i showed you how to do wheelies in this game and i had a lot of fun with that today i wanted to do another tutorial this Once on how to

drift

in Forza Horizon 5. In today's video I'm going to show you the basics of how to

drift

and Forza Horizon 5, from choosing the right car to upgrading your car

tuning

. his vehicle, all the assists I run that I think he should run and then also how to get sideways.

In fact, I'm going to split today's video into different chapters, so if you already know which vehicle you want to drift but if you don't know which

upgrades

to use, you can skip to that part in the video below. If today's video helps you start drifting, consider subscribing for

Forza Horizon 5 walkthroughs and also leaving a like to let other people know you enjoy step one of how to drift and forge horizon five is obviously choosing the car itself now there's a couple things you'll want to pay attention to number one if you look down in the bottom left hand corner of the screen you'll see this vehicle the jeep trail cap is four wheel drive and the engine is on the front end which isn't really an ideal setup for drifting, you can definitely do it, but if you're just starting out you probably want to avoid that, you'll want to avoid things like this as well. koenigsegg jesco is rear wheel drive but the engine is in the middle again you can totally drift but probably not the best for learning one if you are just starting out you will want to find something like this the mercedes amg hammer the engine is in the front end and all the power goes to the rear it is rear wheel drive some of my personal favorite

cars

to learn how to drift are some of these older nissans from the 90s and early 2000s this is one of my favorites in all play the nissan silvia s15 15.

More Interesting Facts About,

how to drift in forza horizon 5 cars upgrades tuning more...

Honestly don't worry too much about trying to pick the perfect car as a lot of drifting is down to personal preference and like I said you can really drift anything if you're just starting out with the front engine rear wheel drive anyway. I already have your car, you'll want to get out of that screen and head over to the update and tune menu and your custom

upgrades

. This is where you can upgrade your vehicle to be a real drift car. Now I like working on me. Actually backwards

cars

I always start with conversion swaps and

more

specifically engine swaps because this will dictate what happens with the rest of your build, for example if none of the engines you have can make a huge amount of horsepower, you may want. use super skinny tires so you can turn them easily and the reverse is also true if you have a lot of horsepower in your car you'll probably want fat tires so you can get some grit for this nissan s15 though we have a ton of different engines this It's an RB26 from a Nissan Skyline, this is a 2JZ from a Toyota Supra and this is a V8 from just about everything, however what you'll realize very quickly about the drift is that it's all down to personal preference.

Guys may only want to run the 2jz for example some may only want to run the v8 and some people may only want to run the rotor 4. You can literally do anything and get really good results though my advice is if it's just beginning. you are going to want to look at engines like this v8 where the horsepower rating and torque rating are very similar which will make your vehicle very predictable while actually drifting so for the purposes of this video we're going to put the v8 in sorry hardcore jdm fans anyway after that we can go to our transmission swap we already have rear wheel drive so we don't need to touch that then we can get to our aspiration conversion , this is where you can swap out some twin turbos or a super ercharger again you can run whatever you want here however the turbos will actually turbo lag you can see that in the torque graph at the bottom of the screen unlike of a supercharger which is flatter which again will make it more consistent while drifting so I'm going to cast the supercharger once you're done you can exit that menu and head over to this arrow and appearance, none of these options will be important for your vehicle, so feel free to throw whatever you want.

I decided to put this really cool top secret body kit on our car with this really cool big rear wing. I think it looks pretty good, like I said, throw whatever you want though. new tires for forza horizon 5 is the skid tire compound to make life simpler we are going to throw that on our vehicle because those tires are designed to go sideways if you start to get into the hard area you are probably going to want to look into the drag tires after that we'll jump to the width of our tire the width of your tire is also very important as I said it will affect how much grip your vehicle has usually I'll tend to increase this a couple of notches I'm going to go up to 235 for the front and we're going to go to 255 for the rear the width of your tire really depends on your power if you want to run a lot of horsepower put some fatter tires on your car once you've done that grab the wheels you want to put on and some engine spacers to make your car look good once you've done all that head over to your drive train and here we are going to play around with our gearbox we are going to upgrade our clutch to a racing clutch that will allow us to change gears faster.
This is your stream here. We are going to add a race transmission. You can totally add like a seven-speed, eight-speed, nine-speed, whatever you want. I like to keep it simple, simple, six speed. I'm also going to upgrade the driveshaft which saves 15 pounds of overall vehicle weight and then we're also going to add a skid differential this will all be important when we tune the car after that we'll look at our performance and handling and this is where you're going to add some really big stuff to drift number one you're going to want some race breaks that will give you a better bite going into some of your corners I like to throw that on all my vehicles and then you'll come to this your springs and your shocks you will want some drift suspension for your vehicle you will notice it will lower your car right away it will lean the wheel in that will allow you to drift a little easier and also give your car more steering angle to handle larger skids so make sure you use the drift suspension you will also want to throw in some front sway bars and some rear sway bars we will come back to that ll them at one point and then finally som The weight reduction from the race isn't necessary but I like to do it for my cars, make them a bit lighter, make them more manageable when drifting and last but not least , you will reach the customization of your engine. it's where you can add as much or as little power as you want.
Everyone will want something different here. I personally like to drive high powered drift cars. Even fifteen hundred horsepower, it really depends on what you're doing, what roads you're driving on, for this, though I'll keep it pretty simple, let's run 600 700, that's going to be a good place to learn there we go. after adding a race exhaust and race camshafts we have 700 horsepower so all our upgrades are there we are 2 300 lbs we have over 700 horsepower and we are so ready to drift So there you have it again. a lot of upgrading your vehicle is down to personality I'd rather you can really mess around with a bunch of stuff in there just remember the important stuff like drift suspension for example anyway once we've done that , we're not even going to mess around with any

tuning

, we're going to go out into the open world and I'm going to show you what assists I'm running, so these are all the assists I run for every video you see here on the channel, they don't have to match exactly, but there will be some big things you want to be aware of for example your steering i would recommend having it on standard rather than sim sim it will definitely get you more points however it will make your vehicle very nimble if you are just starting out commanding it in standard the other thing you will want is traction control and stability control off which will allow your wheels to spin then switch back to manual or manual with clutch if you are just starting out i would recommend the manual everything else is up to you but again a lot of this is built in with personal preference the more you start to drift the more you learn what you like and what that doesn't like it and that affects what helps you anyway once you have all your assists in your vehicle feel free to go out there start your vehicle and start drifting simple as that congratulations you have made a car out of drift, choosing the right upgrades is the most important thing. part of building a drift car you don't need any fancy drift tunes or anything special like that after you have the right help in the know you can definitely drift, however I'm going to show you how the tuning menu works, no However, I'm going to oversimplify it because I know that this menu can get very, very confusing.
Let's start with tire pressure. less grip you will have so if you notice your car has too much grip try adjusting your tire pressure for me personally I usually like to run around 28 front and 26 rear I will usually keep my share lower rear because those tires are spinning and getting hotter and getting more tire pressure and gear ratio choices are also very important, however they play a bigger role in where you drift and what you're drifting in , since we're just going to be driving in the open world for now I would recommend this target to get your third gear to max out at around 120 to 140 miles per hour and to keep things super super simple I'm just going to stretch my Last push to speed up a bit until the graph in the bottom right corner hits around 120.
I'm totally simplifying this menu, but trust me, try it and try it. You will probably find that free drifting is a bit easier than it was before after that. our alignment is probably the most important When it comes to drifting this is what your alignment will look like if you throw the drift suspension it's already a really good setup however there are a few things I would change for example my rear camber, one thing i have noticed since playing forza horizon 5 is that the drift cars actually have a lot more grip than i personally like and one of the ways i counteract that is by throwing a little more negative camber in the rear. bring that down to negative two the lower the number the less grip you have the other thing i like to change here is my toe angle again i have noticed a lot of the vehicles have a lot of grip in this game i will adjust my toe angle outwards i'll go up a grade front and rear which will also make our vehicles more stable and predictable when actually on their side so play with that again the more you go out the livelier the car will go na be If you're just starting out, run it anywhere from zero to one front wheel degree, you can leave it at seven degrees or roll bars. a lot with this isn't really going to make the biggest difference so leave it there the same for your springs on the front and rear it's not very important the same for your ride height it's not very important i like to bump my vehicles all the time down, so lower your car as much as possible.
However, this is where I like to spend a lot of time in the damping. Damping is basically how fast the shock will push down and how fast it will push up. from an overly simplified version of understanding what these things do the stiffer your vehicle is the less grip it will have the smoother it will be the more grip it will have the more predictable you will often see formula r drift cars running super super smooth suspension because drivers want them to be super predictable. The way I like to run is to make the rear end softer than the front. this menu after that your arrow will likely lock up so don't worry it's slowing down some guys will come in here and play with this like crazy pull break balance front to back. depends on what you're doing for me I like to leave mine 50 50 and just turn my brake pressure up to 125 and then last but not least your diff thisits another super important part about drifting your diff basically manages how much your wheels spin if you take your diff and tune it all the way to 100 it will be a welded diff essentially when you are going around the corner your left wheel and your right wheel will spin exactly the same which makes it more predictable when you're drifting, so what I like to do is set both to 100 and lock the diff all the way so that when one wheel turns, the other wheel turns by exactly the same amount and does it as much as possible. predictable as possible in the corner honestly though don't worry too much about trying to find the perfect tune for your vehicle like I showed before you can go completely off track without messing with any of these things I encourage you to try and change one thing here by driving your vehicle and then feel the difference if you don't feel the difference try to change a little more for example I'm going to share this tune if you want try it out for yourselves i'm going to call it ar12 drift feel free to check that out in the storefront so now that we've done all those tweaks you'll see your vehicle feels a little different than it did before long story short hopefully you'll do May your life drift a little bit easier than it was before a and don't be afraid to change things up in your vehicle, for example, if I were pulling in here and noticing the rear end wasn't coming out as much as I'd like. , I would pause my game, go to the tuning menu and change the tire pressure a bit just as an example anyway, though once you get the car that can drift you might be wondering how do I really drift like what should I be doing with the controller, well that's why I have this.
Screen overlay. I'm going to show you a couple of exercises that you can try starting very easy and getting a little more difficult. It starts here on the festival drag strip. Put your car in third gear and then shoot. I'll note that it's going to be pretty slow coming off the line, but we're starting in third gear so you don't need to mess around with your gear once you start picking up speed, you'll want to start transferring the weight. in your car essentially driving the car left and right you suspend ion by turning your vehicle like this you don't need to mess around with anything else once you get comfortable with it just let it go a bit let it go and then you can start doing this back and forth on the straightaway.
Grabbing your car from left to right this first exercise will just teach you how to counter steer and balance the throttle that's all I'm doing I'm not messing with the gears I'm not braking you'll have to brake if the cars decide to cut you off that's basically all what i'm doing is just balancing throttle with steering you can see my front wheels when i turn don't be afraid to turn though if you give it too much throttle you will definitely go off if it's turning like that try giving it a little less room once you get a feel for it Comfortable driving back and forth on the drag track, try playing with the handbrake, do it by pressing the A button and you will notice that it will stop.
My rear wheels from spinning that's what the handbrake does what the handbrake does for drifting, although it can help you start to slide into the corners and spread them out a bit more. Try experimenting with the handbrake by just starting to play it once you feel more comfortable playing it and then you can start holding it in the corner and extending your lines a bit, for example, anyway once you feel comfortable going and Coming up the drag strip, I want you to set a waypoint up here, this is going to be lesson number two, pretty much what we're going to do. with this actually use it as a break line to show us where we should start to drift so when you see this that's when you can release the parking brake at the corner and have your car start to go sideways like so like so if you're just starting out you should definitely use the braking line as sort of a guide for when you should start the drifts, sometimes you'll want to start them a little earlier, sometimes you'll want to start them the ter depends on the corner, but he's a good guy, so come to this room and try to start drifting towards the corner.
I'll show you what I'm doing at any given time, so let me talk. what I'm doing at each point on this turn so you'll already notice that I'm in the left lane when we're about to take a turn to the left what that will allow me to do as we go in here is transfer the weight that's what i'm doing there turning right which is putting weight on the left throws so there's nothing crazy going on nothing crazy going on and now i'm starting to turn left you can see my wheels turn very very slightly to the left so I transferred the weight to that side and now I turn it to the right side of the vehicle and as I do that I also apply the parking brake you can see my rear wheels locked there that's going to start to slide and at the same time I'm turning again the opposite way at this point you'll notice my wheels are pointing straight at the apex you always want your wheels to be pointing basically where you're going so now we're just stepping on the gas the same way l or we were doing before and also rocking our steering with that so while we're aiming for the corners we're still rocking we're still rocking the way I stopped the drift I was letting off the throttle and then transferring the weight in the opposite direction you can see again what I'm doing I'm heading towards the next whit like i'm gonna take it for another drip and seriously that's about it for the basics of drifting if you can master that stuff congratulations you can officially drift in this game and put your car on its side after that you can start to focus on your transition so you can get around the left and right corners once you've got the hang of 90 degree corners like that definitely go out into some tighter corners like this one here this one will really make it s very similar tuff for set up the drift, but you'll have to hit the throttle a bit less to get into that corner as it's a bit steeper so that's It's all at the end of the day it's just the balance of your car and throttle and a lot of experimentation like I said a lot of drifting depends on personal preference you will definitely want to play around with different upgrades on your car try with a car that It has a thousand horsepower, try a car that only has 300 horsepower, see. what's the difference and then long story short, spend a few hours learning how to get sideways, keep doing it over and over again, you'll spin, you'll bump into a bunch of stuff, but keep doing it, keep learning and eventually you'll be able to. to put your car on its side like nothing i hope today's video helped you get started drifting in forza horizon 5 if you considered subscribing here to the channel i will be doing many more tutorials on this game so keep an eye out for those if there are Anything you want to see in Forza Horizon 5, let me know in the comments below and I'll do my best to make it happen.
I'll see you later bye
