How to Earn Easy Drift Points

Turn off stability control for your vehicle to make drifting easier. When you come upon a sharp turn while tailgating another vehicle, release the throttle and turn into the curve.

Practice drifting on a figure-eight track to rack up style points.

How to Perform Donuts

To perform donuts, hold Gas + Brake + a directional button while drifting, then release the brake.

How to Flip Cars

Touch the bumper of the car in front of you while drifting, then hit the nitrous boost to flip the vehicle over.
