    I'd like to know how big JR's circle was, since apparently that's the only difference between his attempt from what he said was an exploitation. I'd like to see this done in a Figure-8 setup. The transition would at least help relate it more to drifting, and it'd also probably help even out the tire wear.

    JR's circle had a diameter of 200 feet, but that's not the point. He is not arguing that this is the actual longest drift. He broke it just to show how easy it is to break. He plans on setting what he feels will be the actual longest drift. And that would be a drift that actually has an apex, since a circle does not.

    I agree with the others. How is his giant drift circle different than the first record? more smoke?

    Its not supposed to be different you guys. Hes just trying to prove that it isnt a hard thing to do/it isnt real drifting. He is going to set a real drift record at some point. Like Brian said, he wants his to have an apex, which to me is a more accurate definition of drifting.
