Porsche 911 GT3 RS: Learn the Scandinavian flick

Porsche 911 GT3 RS
You don’t need a Porsche 911 GT3 RS for learning how to drift on Scandinavian ice, but it’s definitely the most fun. Enjoy this how-to and improve your driving skills!

The Maneuver (for a right-hand turn):

1. Set up the car in a straight line before the onset of the turn. The car should be just to the left of the road’s centerline, to allow room for the tail to swing out.

2. Flick the steering wheel just slightly in the opposite direction of your intended turn, in this case a faint snap to the left. This will shift the car’s load dramatically, and build up inertial momentum.

3. Quickly move the wheel back in the direction of your intended turn, to the right in this example. The sudden change in direction will upset the chassis just enough to cause the back end of the car to over-react, pointing you in the direction of the turn, or even a little bit past it. To heighten this effect, you can either lift the throttle or provide a bit of left-foot braking just after the initial, opposite-direction flick (Step 2).

4. Once the car starts to rotate, apply just enough countersteering to put the car on its final trajectory.

5. With the car on its new heading, apply enough throttle to pull you through the turn, gradually trimming back the car’s rotation as you pull through the apex of the curve.

6. Exhale, unpucker, and declare to the onlooking moose that you’re the king of the North Country.
