Spun out at just under 170
This is a discussion on Why is WRX insurance so expensive? Dorifting accomplishments inside here! within the Comparison: WRX vs World forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; Spun out at just under 170...
Took a offramp at 80kmh (one of those that you know quite well and tend to push a little harder each time) only to find a trunk layed a nice diesel spill for me!
The backside stepped out, natural reaction stepped in and I countersteerd... lucky for me the road was 2 lanes wide. Cars behind me backed way off...

I got the wrx sideways at 50mph on a wet road, it was goofy, I had to look out the passanger window and windshield with the A pillar blocking my view...very scary though lol. Other than that I took a switchback at 45 in my old civic and slid around it perfectly, right before I flipped the car like 5 min later on a hard corner lol

Maybe 60ish when an suv decided that looking before switching lanes was for loosers and hit my rear drivers side causing my backend to slide out upon which I hit a curb and bounced off that and had my drift slowed by a nice brick wall.
Need to say that was in my old rx8 rest it's soul, now I upgraded to the Rex. Not one of my memorable drift momments I must say as any planned drifts I usually took it easy going 30ish to 40ish on dirt roads.
I'm normally looking at the road, not the speedo.
35 on dirt
Havent tried to get sideways on tarmac lol cant find a street big enough and I guess I just dont got the balls to do it right now.
Are we counting stuff like doing a full 2X tete-a-queue and putting a car worth two years' salaries back then through a brick wall backwards as a result? And I'm not cheating on the rotations, I'm being lenient and saying 2. Figure 100 kph or so. It doesn't take much in my hands, that's the advantage of being clueless and having no relation whatsoever to driving.

About 95-100mph on my KLR685 in the dirt, routinely, which is its top speed.
About 120 mph or so in turn two at Jennings on the R6, let the rear step out in that little dip, and about 100 in turn 12 thinking I could keep the throttle pinned all the way to the braking point on turn 13. They told me that was only possible with slicks, not overheated street tires.
In the 2.5 RS, I think about 60-70 in the dirt and about 70-80 on the street.
The worst one was a mistake thinking I could match the cornering speed of my Ninja with .... a Kia. It did alright until the midcorner bump bounced the rear end out at about 85 mph, sending me into a miserable two lane drift which I barley saved.
Lucky no one was coming the other way.
55 I think but my speedo broke so unsure
drifting??.....what's drifting...........you mean when you slide that sum b!tch sideways in a corner lol

(sign said 5mph) and dukes of hazarded right into a ford explorer head on.
If you have everything under control you're going too slow.
