just have to develop a feel for it. but it does cause flatspots on the rear tire. I had a bunch of then on my last set of tires.I try not to do it no more but i got so damn good at it taht people swear I have a rear wheel drive car. But as long as you do it in an open space parkinglot and not in the street, I don't think its anymore reckless then speeding. just be ready to change out the tires

Dude, you're from AZ. Have you even seen ice? The only thing is the flat spots really. You won't get the rotors hot since they instantly lock up. Just make sure you do it in a safe location, which isn't always a parking lot....

Actually, the suspension pieces might get some wear or possibly break if you do something real bad. If you think about it, they aren't designed to work in that direction. I think that for the most part though, you'd be fine.

What I do is swing the car in the opposite direction just a tad then swing it in the direction i am going in while applying the ebrake and give it gas. turn the wheel in the direction of the slide and feather the gas pedal. that swing is called a pendulum (spelling) and that is the way rally racers do it to go into a slide. Bu I caution you that it takes practice and needs to be done in a well open area and not the street. as far as the supension goes, I could not tell you if it was really bad or not. but don't do this every chance you get. after that you need to just get the feel for it.
I had a g2 5 years ago and i use to do it alot and never had a problem with the rotors or suspension, but it was hard on the tires though

I love coming home late at night and doing some empty parking lot pseudo "drifting" ;) Its a blast, and is a good way to get to know how your car reacts in spin situations. I like to try going sideways and continue on straight. Great practice.
