AMG Driving Academy drift lessonEnlarge Photo
If you haven't been following the AMG Driving Academy Performance Series with Tommy Kendall since we brought you the first episode, you should have been. This is an example of why: TK and and AMG driving instructor Nick Kunewalder walk you through some of the basic how-tos of drifting.
From initiation to transitions to the mechanics of what the car is doing, this brief video does a surprisingly good job of explaining what's going on in a drift.
It also contains some nice blooper footage of what can go wrong, including an SLS AMG mowing the lawn while trailing an Al-Gore-disgruntling cloud of tire smoke. Enjoy.
