After lots of practice, I finally beat the drifting race in the GRID demo. FREAKEN HARD!!!
the idea is to keep your car sliding down the entire track, and you have to get as close as you can to the cones on the insides of the corners. Every two turns or so, you get another number added to your multiplier, and you can get up to 20,000 points for a perfect drift (very close to the cone).
E-brake = Emergency brake = hand brake. Whenever I drift (on the computer of course), i usually turn the direction I want to go, e-brake, let go of the gas, steer the opposite direction, accelerate.

Practice makes perfect.

Uhm I never use ebrake, just let off the gas and steer and accelerate as hard as it could and countersteer/let of gas again if the car drift too much (> 30*).

I very rarely use the handbrake, only need it sometimes. I do what shajbot does.
You really need a gamepad though to be able to play the game properly, or even better, a steering wheel. If you have a spare ps2 controller lieing around, then get this: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.789 $5.63 and free shipping worldwide. Even comes with it's own cute mini cd of drivers, although windows update can install it's own.

yes its difcult to drift.. but its a bit easyer with these options:

steering deadzone: 70%
steering saturation: 90%
steering linairing: 10

that is the correct way
"e"-brake is a misused term for automobiles. It is NOT an "emergency" brake. Nor is it an "engine" brake. The correct term is parking brake as it is supposed to be used, at all times, when parked. Tractors use a "jake" brake which is using the engine to slow down and makes a helluva a racket to boot.
If an automobile is a standard and you use your engine alone to stop, you are going to be replacing you clutch discs a lot sooner than you think. Always clutch/downshift when slowing down/stopping. People in NASCAR very rarely shift because they do not need to.

Uhhh, no. Unless you're too dumb to downshift properly, or your clutch is already so badly worn that it's slipping, you are NOT going to wear out your clutch using the engine to brake.


Simple step to engine braking in a standard car:

1. Clutch in
2. Choose lower gear.
3. Blip throttle to match RPMs to what they will be when the clutch is released, and hold the engine here
4. Release clutch. Should smoothly go in with little or no jerking.
5. Release throttle. Let pumping losses and engine compression slow the car.
Step 6: Return to step 1 to continue through the gears.
