About the new M5, it's sequential-speed so drifting with it isn't very easy, how do you manage to keep the rev up while drifting and keep your fingers on the sequential pads while steering....

It is'nt hard i think it's easier than the manual gearbox, Because the pad of the sequentiol is sticked to the steering wheel so whie ur steering the pads will be just right behind ur hands..

Thats exactly my point lol!! HOW do you manage to DRIFT if u gotta put ur fingers on the PADS........ whereas in manual transmission u don't have to worry about anything keeping ur fingers busy....... it goes like this: u came to a left turn with the M5 @ 80 mph (2nd gear). you wanna slow down to 40 mph (1st gear) and rev the car up (say, 6500rpm) so that u can drive sideways. you steer widely to the left and then to the right to drift. in the middle of ur drift, u wanna get out of the turn inside-out style, so u gotta steer gently to the left and then stabilize the car. WELL, U HAVE TO SWITCH FROM 2ND TO 1ST AND THEN BACK TO 2ND WHILE DOING ALL THIS. in manual transmission u drift with one hand and gear with the other. but without a lever u have to STEER WITH BOTH HANDS AND GEAR WITH BOTH HANDS.......
