New game, new physics, and new skills to master.


Forza Motorsport 5 has given us a new challenge. We all know that the physics engine has greatly improved and it's as close to reality as any Forza has ever been. That being said, drifting is more difficult than ever. That's where the Drift School comes in.

The Drift School is strictly community run. Out of generosity, our community peers have stepped up to help those in need with the new challenges Turn 10 has given us.

If you are in need of assistance with drifting, look no more.

There are no in game rewards, the instructors aren't getting paid anything, this is strictly for fun.



As an instructor
Instructors, your duty is to teach our scholars the different kind of car builds for drifting, tuning, and techniques.
Each scholar in need will post on the thread, it is your job to claim that player by replying to him.
Once done so, establish a good time to get together online.
Once you feel the new drifter has succeeded at drifting, feel free to post on the thread to congratulate them.

As a scholar
Once you are ready to start drifting start out by saving roughly 120,000cr for a solid drift build if you don't have a car yet.
Post on here with the following form:
Gamertag:
Your drift rating (1-10):
(Optional) Desired Instructor:

Keep in mind, some instructors may take some time to get back to you. Some will also teach you different techniques then others so you are more than welcome to try out different instructors if you feel that you need to.
Once you get very good at drifting, even you can become an instructor.



If you would like to become an instructor, please private message me with your timezone and available days/times you can teach.
Gamertag | Timezone | Days/Times available
JiqSaw Bunqie | EST | 5:20EST 10:20GMT 8:20PST
o RJF | GMT | 5pm on Weekdays and all day on Saturdays

Questions and Suggestions
If you have any questions or suggestions, please private message me so I can make the changes that need to be made.


Please do not message me about drift lessons. I'm not an instructor. Thank you.

I'm pretty decent at drifting I just need some help on cars to build. I have broke the top 600 in the world on some drift rival events but I have been barley sliding by haha I have tried the 2 M3's, which aren't bad, a LS1 swapped S14, which is really squirley, and a 350 and 370. I have plenty of credits so who ever can help that would be great! I'm on mountain time and I'm off work and home by like 10:30-11:00 am. Free almost all day. Thanks in advance for whoever helps!! Happy Drifting everyone!!
