Did you know that it’s actually possible to make a Hot Wheels car drift? Phil Foss figured out a way to make it happen.
Basically you need two things: a low-friction surface that will let the toy car’s wheel slide just a bit (Phil sells a “Driftpad” for $15 that you can use for your Hot Wheels track), and you need to launch your tiny Tokyo drifting car at just the right angle so that it doesn’t stop. Ideally, if everything’s done correctly, you can keep the car drifting in a nearly perpetual loop.
