What If You Put Aircraft Controls In Your Drift Car?

Illustration for article titled What If You Put Aircraft Controls In Your Drift Car?

Things don’t go great, as it turns out.

This is John Wagner of the drift team Bloodmasters (you know he has lots of experience drifting, just look at that beard) testing out what looks like a gaming wheel on his Nissan 240SX.

He manages to hold it together through one corner there at Englishtown, but making the second is too great a task.

I still wanna try, though.

That’s not really aircraft controls. I was expecting like, rudder controls, and throttle on a sliding or pivoting rod.

He just replaced the steering wheel with a yoke.
