Are soft or hard tires better for drifting?
Op: for the most part comfort hards break loose smoother and therefore are easier to control drifts. On the other side for a few very high hp cars it can take more throttle control to keep the car from spinning but with a solid setup is no big deal. Overall comfort hards are the way to go.
