Guy Street Drifts with GoPro under Car and in the Rear Tire
This is what the suspension goes through in extreme conditions.
Thanks to Fast and Furious and others, we know how a car drifting looks and sounds. What we don't know, however, is what happens inside the rear tire and under of a car while drifting, and luckily, this video by YouTube channel Warped Perception and recent technologies have the answer for you.
In a previous video, Warped Perception had mounted a GoPro inside his Toyota Supra's intake manifold to get a perspective on how air and fuel enter a cylinder, doing a few Wide Open Throttle runs under boost, too.
Now, in a new video, he put two GoPro Hero 9s, one under his car and the second in the rear tire, which fit just fine. This way, he was able to capture what was happening with the rear suspension as he drove the car to extreme conditions for as long as he could. Needless to say, the results were interesting.
He wrote that watching the suspension work during drifting was especially impressive since he had never seen anything like this before. He wrote, "... It was interesting to see how the drivetrain components and all of the bushings work together to dampen all of the forces going to the rear tires."
