Winter tires at the back, high pressures, old tires and stuff like that is for children ... It's no fun sliding around at low speeds.
i kinda agree with you. since drifters use throttle to shift the center of gravity of the car to the rear back and forth to adjust the level of grip from the backend. i guess having low grip tires on the back end would just make the car twitchy. i don't know much about drifting but i think initiate oversteer on a car isn't that hard, but to maintain and control the slide is the art.
