Wow, if I tried that i'd probably launch my axles right through someone's window. And then subsequently crash. Maybe the other way around. Not sure.

So where does one learn / practice these skills, and what kind of strain does that do on a car?

Bah, it's much easier on the tires to do that on a frozen lake.. Not quite as impressive, admittedly, but I did some pretty cool stuff with old beater cars on lakes all the time. I had to change tires a whole lot less too, and my car was the same one I drove to work everyday..

We used to dirve out on lakes an race each other, we'd make up a track and just go at it, great fun!

Never had a single wreck, only one tire pop off a rim when we hit a snow bank once. I bet this guy has thrashed at least one car doing this.

Find us a nicer "real" car with that kind of handling and all wheel drive.

The American car market died in the 80's with teh steel mills.

^^Its not about drifting, thats about precise handling and skill. You need to drift to complete those turns at that speed. And another thing... its kinda hard to ACTUALLY do drift competitions in an AWD vehicle, no?

Bah. A subaru is no Rice burner. Its an AWD beast if you don't get the crappy ones.

That driving... awesome. Had to find my jaw, it was on the floor for about 4 minutes there...

Most drifting cars are AWD, with a few RWD, like the Mustang. FWD cannot drift, what they do is called sliding, and it usually ends badly for the car. Gymkhana is a combination of drifting and autocross, but that video is off the chart, I first saw it about two weeks ago, been in shock ever since.
