Title goes with the theme of the video.
300 - This is Sparta!
This video captured my two attempts at drifting my s2000 through an on ramp. I challenged myself to see if I could drift a full on ramp.
Visualizing and trying it out little by little when ever I was on the ramp. Making sure that I am not over confident, I worked with mini drifts on the ramp here and there during the rainy days until I got a good feel for it. Practicing and seeing it in my head and playing the scene through my mind to build the muscle-memory in my arms so I get a feel for how I need to counter-steer when I'm really drifting for the whole corner.
Why I did it?
I've spend a lot of seat time in my s2000, and as a result I was confident that I would be all right and was willing to take responsibility for a damaged s2000 should I damage it from a mistake. I choose to do it where no cars would be near me while I'm sideways. So I choose to do this out of the sake of learning. I have confidence in my abilities to bail out when necessary and put the car safely to rest. There aren't many places to drift or that allow it, so I choose the on ramp, because I can't find places where I can get the same drifts around here. So the on ramp was a risk on my own part, but not to anyone around me because I made sure no one was around me. It's an on ramp, so there's not much going on besides driving through a one-way curve to merge.
The stage was set; this was my big leap to test myself. I'm still a student at drifting in real life, as I am still learning how to translate what I'm capable of in Gran Turismo drifting into real life drifting.
I have decided to mix this video accordingly to deliver my feeling in the video. Background music, quotes, and movie referenced quotes are used to deliver the same energy and vindication feeling I had during and after this recording.
I thank you for your comments and ratings.
Driven 3rd gear and it's in MPH.

Audi R8 V10 - Honda S2000..How much faster is the R8..
A friend and I were driving back home and we came up behind an Audi R8. It
indeed was quite a bit faster than
my S2000 haha. (Duhh)..But hey, The R8 is a $110k-$160k Car and the s2000
is only $35k new. This is the V10 Audi R8, which puts out more than twice
as much HP as my S2000.
To all the people who think I'm trying to say the S2000 is as good, or
anywhere close to an Audi R8, you are foolish, and you have completely
missed the point of the video. I am showing how much faster an R8 is than my S2000. That is all.
It you are ranting and raving about how "the R8 barely touched the gas
pedal", watch from 0:50 - 0:55 . He blows me away. I've been around 500+ hp
cars before, and I can tell you, that is pedal down.
