I can only guess at setting tips..........
Probably a high steering lock number to help catch and hold the slide.
Set the rear brake bias a long way back (?)
Play with the diff settings A LOT; my guess would be start with a very low coast side lock. Then play with the power lock - maybe start with a very low setting there to.

Good cars - the GT350 is quite good, the Cobra is great, but needs more controll and also the Daytona is superb.
A lot of the 65 cars are very good - Alfa is good as well for the tight stuff.
In the 76 class the tires really dont allow you to properly keep your car sideways for longer times. Pantera can do it with power, but is very tricky if you want to do it properly.
Best one here is the Schnitzer BMW - very smooth once in a slide.
Setup - if you want to do it properly you need to use the race setup. That way you go faster when sliding. Making a special setting where you make the rear end less gripy (stiff rear ARB, Springs and dampers, high rear tirepressure) will only make it easier to start and hold the slide, but will reduce the possible speed of the slide a lot.
The changes that are necesary compared to the default are brakes to the back and more diff lock on the power. Most important things are high steering lock (from 30,5 onwards) and using no autoclutch.
Now no autoclutch is ment for the downshifts into the corner as you can get the car sliding that way. You steer in on the braking well before the corner and drop a gear or two without much throttle bliping. This will get the rear end going and you than have to immidiatly go onto the power to start holding the slide. Now carefull throttle input and the right opposite lock will produce the right slide.
Brakes on the rear also help you with the turn in and while you are braking you can stear into the corner, unsettle the rear end and get into a slide.
Next one is using the handbrake to get the slide going - you should mapp the handbrake in your controll menue and than just steer in and pull the handbrake. For more braking effect press the clutch as you do that.
To do handbrake turns quicker you can allready press the handbrake and clutch before turning in.
To extend the slide once you are in it you can alway quickly press the clutch while on full power. That will unsetttle the grip on the rear tires and you will spin the rears more. You have to be carefull though as if you are allready on full lock it will just make you spin. It is handy on the exits of the corners if you are allready out of power to keep you slide going.
You have to set your clutch to about 92% of sensitivity though to get a quick stab of the power that you need.
Basicly all of the real car techniques will work in GTL and you can find those on the net (Drift Bible...). I personally dont use any of the popular names of the techniques or copy them to the exact point - acctually I never read any of their descriptions - I just do it by my own feel (it is all just a play of forces anyway and if you know your physics you can always find a solution of how to deal with a certain situation)

Absolutely fantastic video, thanks for sharing that:up:
It brings back alot of good memories, as I used to have a '69 390GT Mustang with a 4 speed top-loader and around that time Led Zep was a favorite band alongside Hendrex and the Doors...they still are:)
With the weight and power of the big block motor, that car was naturaly tail happy and a lot of fun to drive, you could make a 180° turn just by locking the front brakes, giving it full lock, releasing the brakes and planting the throttle. No handbrake required...in fact they didn't have them, just some foot operated affair on a rachet the yanks called a parking break:)
Wish I never sold it now...:cry: oh well, I'll just have to dig out the plastic wheel n pedals and have another try at it:rolleyes::
