These R/C Cars Drift So Much Better Than You Ever Will

Video: Drifting R/C cars isn't a completely new pasttime, but there's still something magical about watching a trio of R/C cars go flying off a jump — sideways. It's everything you ever wasted your childhood trying to achieve, but done by grown-ups with far more skill.

The video was filmed by the Kuma Films team at the WARU circuit in Yokohama, Japan. The actual drifting video is great, but the behind-the-scenes footage is what makes this great — I'll never get bored of watching an adult with a Steadicam rig chasing a remote-control car.

    Looks like a cool place to be. Wouldn't mind having a crack in there!!

    Having watched that whole video, not once did they go over a jump.

      have a look at the making-of.

        Having watched both videos I still never saw a car go over a jump.

        Seriously where is that footage? Did I blink and miss it?

    Great video! As a former RC drifter myself, I can see the precision in their driving.
    At one stage I was spending more money on my RC car than my daily driver, of which I made it to be a replica of. Though I didn't drift my road going vehicle!

    Also, does anyone else think these "better than you" headlines have become irritating?
