I got the Drifter Achievement easy.

I got 98,964 Drift Points on Nurburgring, and in the 'best drifting car' i had
at the time.

CBA with this Acheivement atm.

Comment #8 by LuKeY PooKeY95
Friday, December 31, 2010 @ 06:43:40 AM

Well, I CBA'd... until i used a HKS EVO on fujimi kaido. 2nd attempt 100,000

Manual gear box, remain in 2nd and feather round the turns.

Quite easy, but you may need to rewind every turn to make your drift points more than 2,000 or so.

just go to quick race on fujimi then hit left on the directional pad so you get
drift to appear let all the computers pass you and sit in the back and drift
it will take some time but since your in quick race you will have rewinds to
keep going back and trying until you a decent amount of points my car choice is
a nissan datsun thats what i got it in i hope ive helped

biggest tip is do i offline so you can rewind time did it first time only just tho on fijimi if u lose any points hit the back button didnt score enouth points as u coul on a corner hit the back button anouther tip is find a car you can handle four wheel drive is easer but its up 2 u wot ur prefrence is just practise on a smaller track

Wednesday, March 09, 2011 @ 08:28:41 AM

I got this last night quite easily - had to do it for my gf and me... First took the HKS Evo and got that on the 2nd lap on fujimi kaido. Make sure traction control/stability control is off... ABS is up to you.

The 2nd time I took a custom 4wd VW Scirocco out. This was actually much easier as the HKS Evo loses acceleration too quickly. This one I got on the 1st lap :-D

Sunday, March 13, 2011 @ 08:46:39 AM

I just did this and the best tip I can give to anyone who can't do it... USE REWIND...ALOT!

Whenever you make a drift and you're not satisfied with the points you got.... use the magic button ;-)

Monday, March 14, 2011 @ 02:28:46 AM

I used a 2008 Imprezza and worked like a charm, Took me like 4 laps to temeber the turns and get the right tune setup. But i enjoyed doing it

Comment #23 by slayer2121
Thursday, March 17, 2011 @ 08:23:11 PM

Ok if your looking for an easy way to do this, here is how. From the start menu choose free play, hot lap, and pick the fujimi kaido tracks. The one that is 10.2 miles long. Next pick the bagatti veron, the one with the speed rating of 10.0 Now turn off all of your assist, put it in manual. Now when the race starts leave it in secound gear the whole time and feather the gas around the courners. If you can try and chain multiply drifts together into one big one. If you can do this the points will go up faster then single drifts. After many different cars and tracks, this is what worked for me. I eneded up with 122,561 points. Best of luck and hope this helps.

Comment #24 by Aagame
Saturday, March 19, 2011 @ 04:43:28 PM

THANK YOU slayer!!! The Bagatti Veron on kaido works great! Do exactly what he said and you should be able to pick up enough. Just be sure to have 50,000 by the time you reach the top of the mountain, which marks about the half way point. You can get quite a bit on the way coming down since you have the aid of gravity helping you. I suck at drifting and was able to get 100,145 thanks to an 8000 point drift on the final turn :)

Got this on my second try with a custom Toyota Supra. IMO the Supra is a great car to get this one with, though i've been racing with it since pretty much the start of the game. xD

Comment #27 by Mr Gambino II
Wednesday, April 13, 2011 @ 11:17:03 PM

I completed this with a 09 dodge challenger with all upgrades. What I do is stay in 1st gear and when starting, I just press the hand break when I need it until degree is just right and I press the gas just enough to actually get straight without hitting the wall. after I done that, I just don't hit to wall what so ever and I actually got 109,000 points on Fujimi Kaido. My friend and I were at it for 5 days. all day and all night. Besides going to work and stuff but just getting on when we are anxious to get this achievement done. I got it. my friend is still working with other cars that work.

i completed this with Subaru Impreza WRX 08' on fujimi kaido. On the first lap i got about 118.000 points...

Comment #29 by the kiddmeister
Sunday, April 17, 2011 @ 06:29:14 PM

just wondering, if you get to the end of a lap before you get 100,000, could you just turn around and go back on the same lap untill ytou get enough points?

Comment #30 by xileras
Wednesday, April 20, 2011 @ 09:33:29 AM

Afraid not no kiddmeister. Forza has this tracking system in place that remembers where your position is/was the last time you where travelling in the right direction. So if you turn around, drive back and try again, the game will simply not count any potential drift points. Is a good thing really, saves people from turning around and massing up millions of points on a tiny circuit :-P

Comment #31 by Sbrillo84
Friday, April 29, 2011 @ 11:24:46 AM

done it! second attempt on Fujimi Kaido with HKS EVO, manual gearing, driving
aids off (except for ABS), 2nd gear all the track, hand brake, rewind when i hit
the wall or i knew that i could earn more point. thank you for suggestions :D

Saturday, April 30, 2011 @ 01:52:37 PM

done it get this a ford focus rs standard on the fujimi kaido

Yay baby LOL

Comment #33 by Ragequit
Monday, May 02, 2011 @ 06:50:30 AM

Comment #37 by crackedeggs1
Wednesday, May 11, 2011 @ 08:02:00 PM

It's worth noting that you only get X number of rewinds per lap. So don't use them all on a corner that you keep hitting the side. Move on and save them for later.

I don't know what the max is, but I just hit it about 3/4 through Fujimi Kaido.

Comment #38 by crackedeggs1
Wednesday, May 11, 2011 @ 09:00:21 PM

EDIT: You get unlimited rewinds until the 7th place car passes the finish line.

Comment #55 by DragonusDarque
Thursday, July 28, 2011 @ 08:04:43 PM

I have tried this on several tracks with several cars and can't get it. I suck at drifting, which is why I played this game over the Need For Speed games. It makes no sense that a game that prides itself on technical racing makes you earn that much on a single laps, and only gives you 5G.
This is going to be the only achievement I can't unlock. Everyone keeps saying it's so easy, but I have tried many times. It's frustrating. I even bought drift tunes and spent hundreds of thousands of credits to upgrade the cars to use the tunes, and nothing to show for it.

Comment #56 by DragonusDarque
Thursday, July 28, 2011 @ 11:11:00 PM

I GOT IT!!!! Sorry for the caps, but I have been trying for ages. Used Mine's Skyline, with a tune from a helper on another site, on Fujima Kaido track (normal) and got 109,017! Ding! Achievement Unlocked!
Thanks to the information I found here, so thanks to all.

Comment #57 by Loukakis
Friday, July 29, 2011 @ 11:27:48 AM

Tried loads of different cars and tune setups but i suck horribly at drifting in this game, kept getting around 75-80k, first try in a stock buggati veyron on fujima kaido in 2nd gear and i got 130k (only abs on). Thanks to the guys that suggested it.

Comment #59 by Broski270
Sunday, July 31, 2011 @ 11:19:26 PM

Hardest Forza 3 achievement by far. Took me 9 months to get. Buy the HKS Time Attack Evolution, quick upgrade it to the highest option (I forget I think it was R3 or R2), go to free play, Hot Lap, Fujimi Kido (however its spelled), Full Circuit (not reverse), then try to drift every corner. If you crash or miss a good drift opportunity REWIND. I was racing for 45-60 minutes rewinding and such. Email me a if you need help or message me on XBL gamertag Broski270.

Comment #66 by Guitar LInc0ln
Thursday, August 25, 2011 @ 06:42:05 PM

Broski270's hint worked like a charm. Mitsubishi HKS Evolution, maxed out with quick update on Fujimi Kaido (Full Track, NOT REVERSE) in 2nd gear and all assists turned off made my day and brought me last 5GS of the Game with a very precise score of 100,067 points after my 3rd try :D

I can recommend this car. I've tried so many differnet cars and tuning setups, but my major problem was always, that I have problems to keep the car on the track when they slip to hard (guess that's a problem of many others, too). But with the HKS Evolution you have a very good handling (even after you maxed it out) and you can still drift very controlled without an easy swerving of the vehicle in curves. Just give it a try ;)

Comment #67 by jordandavila88
Friday, August 26, 2011 @ 10:28:34 AM

an easier way to complete this achievement is to turn stability control off. you can leave your car in automatic. select the nourbourgring and stop your car. than stomp on the accelerator and drive back and forth. once the chain stops. stop your car and do it again.

Comment #68 by Earth Djinn
Saturday, August 27, 2011 @ 04:08:47 PM

I just got this, it took me two tries, and it only took two because I tried to do it in a race the first time and lost rewind ability near the end of the race and crossed the finish line at just over 98k.

Anyway, I went to Fujimi Kaido, full track, in a Bugatti Veyron. I turned all assists off and put gears to manual. I put it into second and left it there the whole time.

I know that this is what a lot of other people are already said, but I'm just posting this to reinforce that it does work, and it really isn't that hard once you get used to drifting and make sure to use rewind as much as you need to.

Oh, and don't make my mistake; make sure to do it in a free play hot lap to ensure you get as many rewinds as you need.

Can't believe I finally did it. It cost me over two and a half hours but I finally did it. Took the HKS Evo as suggested and it paid off. Had to rewind a lot cause I just don't seem to be able to drift around a corner without hitting something.
Just the Solid Gold achievement left now...

Comment #77 by msfstar13
Friday, September 23, 2011 @ 02:12:45 AM

It's achievements like this that make me hate racing games, as a matter of fact, it's crap like this that made me not buy NFS. What driver would ever act like such a c@nt and pull this shit on a track? Hmmm? None that's who, so why is it in a SIMULATION game? In order to get this you need to damn near break the laws of physics. I've seen people on you tube get like 10-16K per drift, essentially driving their car's sideways for half a mile, and I wanna call bull shit on that. Can't be done in real life, period. MAYBE on a wet surface, but not on dry pavement. And it's bull shit like this that'll make me never buy another Forza. There, now that I've vented, anyone got any tips on how to ACTUALLY drift, because nothing I've read has helped me out whatsoever. It may have worked for them, and c

Comment #78 by msfstar13
Friday, September 23, 2011 @ 02:18:30 AM

countless others, but not for me. I always either hit the wall or stall out. Biggest drift I've gotten was 3K and that was sheer luck on a VERY wide track, not Fujimi or whatever. So if anyone has tips on how to continue the drift they'd be greatly appreciated, I guess I just don't get the whole counter steer garbage. Oh, and all assist, except ABS, are off, so it's not that. I've also tried RWD, FWD, and AWD cars, and end up with the same results. I'm about at my wits end with this cheeve. It's the only one I got left where I actually have to do the driving. After this I can hire drivers and get the rest, well except for the tuning set up, but no one I've asked to buy mine has come through for me so yeah, guess I'll have to let a friend borrow the game. lol

Comment #79 by Comatose77
Saturday, September 24, 2011 @ 05:11:27 PM

Okay.... So I too was VERY frustrated trying to get this Achievement. I was trying everything from the HKS EVO to the Skyline and at least 5 other cars with no success. I swore up and down at my TV and promised if I didn't get it eventually my red controller was going threw my TV.

So the one thing I can say that makes the most sense, BE PATIENT. I use the Bugatti Veyron, Auto Breaking-ON, ABS-ON, Stability-OFF, Traction-OFF, Manual, 2nd gear the whole time, on the MT FUJI 10.2 mile course, regular not reverse. Got it on my first lap and first attempt with the Veyron.

Just take your time use rewind but just don't worry if you mess up, there are a bunch of corners and not all are perfect. When I reached the top of the course, AKA the middle, I had 43,000 and I got 65,000 going down hi

Wednesday, October 26, 2011 @ 12:04:29 PM

Agreed with #81, do what #79 said. I tired about ten times with the
EVO and couldn't get more then 90,000 points. Not having played this in forever,
I tried with the Veyron and my first attempt got 98,000. I just got the
achievement now, with 112,712 points. If you can't get the EVO to work,
try to Veyron!

at nfs underground 2 i could kick almost anyone out of the water on drift but
i think i might have better luck at the lottery than getting even 2k on even
one turn. i think i may have to hang up my gloves of completionist on this
one... and i am being nice, cause i really want to do some damage to
someone or something
or cry in a corner with a snapped disc in my bloody hands....

I really hate this achivement with a burning passion. I can't even get more than
1000 on a turn. Ive tried every car suggested and its still the same.

Might have to give up...

After trying out several cars on Fuji I gave an other chance to the HKS EVO and I'm glad I did because I got this achi on the third try. I've done a 80k, a 85k and a 115k run. This car is very powerful but also easy to control, if you fail a corner usually you can get it in 2-3 tries. Done it with a normal controller.

A few tips to help you out. You can separate the track to two part: the first uphill and the second downhill of course. There is a long straight up to the hill before you reach the top, you need to have roughly 40k points on that part to complete the lap, because on the first half of the track it is harder to chain the drifts together compared to the second part. However, be prepared to rewind a lot on the second part to make good chains and also be aware of the tendency o

you can also back up and do a good corner, for points, again and again

Comment #91 by Auron Surmount
Sunday, January 22, 2012 @ 08:59:48 PM

@91: No you can't. (Not sure about back up, but you can't turn around). When you turn around it wont let you get points for drifts anymore.

I suck really bad at drifting. I found that out when I tried this with many of the cars on here. So I attempted what #23 suggested. I got it first try. Sure I rewinded a bagillion times. Who cares. First try.Like he said around 50k at the top of the mountain. You will know when it comes, even if you haven't raced it before. (cuz i didn't).

The biggest Suggestion i can give you is this: if you hit a corner and think you can get a better score you can. Sometiems you will go around a corner and get 2k, when you could really get 6-10k. Keep tweeking it until you get massive points. ALSO: don't use the gas as much as you think you need to.

bugatti veyron

tuned to keep the back stiff and front end grippy

i was stuck at around 93,000 for a while, then i learned how drift around the hairpins and that made all the difference, finally made it to 101,471

got 102k on my first try at fujimi kaido with the HKS evo. wasnt as hard as i feared but was still frustrating at times since i fail pretty hard at drifting. had to rewind more times than i could count. thanks to you all for the tips :D

Thank you to #79!!! I did exactly as you said and got this very easily on my first try... and I really do not drift well at all. Using the rewind feature really helps and I had over 50,000+ by the time I reached the top of the hill. Going down was so easy to get points... and I was so happy to hear that famous click sound with the little 5G for it as I crossed the finish line! Thank you again! Now time to finish up and get the 1000/1000!!! :)

After four attempts on fujimi kaido, I finally got this. Just use the HKS Evo and you'll be good. I tried twice without any tuning or upgrades, and did pretty bad so then I upgraded my car almost all the way and I tuned it using this Tuning setup. I then got it after the second try.

Nevermind, 2 years ago was the last time I tried to get this achievement and thanks to comment #23 and anyone else who suggested the Veyron in second gear, I was able to do it on my second lap! Got 96,666 on my first lap but bossed the second lap and got 119,823! Now just need to get all gold for 1000!

Comment #111 by McDiesel92
Saturday, June 23, 2012 @ 12:13:54 AM

Just did it. I drove the Mitsubishi HBK Attack Evolution with all assists off and manual transmission and left it in 2nd gear. One thing I found out is to lightly brake before some of the sharper turns before using the emergency brake. I tried it with it earlier today for 2 hrs but to no avail(closet was 97,238). Tried it again and got it on my first lap. i posted to the Storefront. Title is "100000 Drift ac" and description is "100,000 Drift achievement" by Whisper1992.

Just finished this achievement (on Fujimi Kaido, full track, all assists off, manual transmission, 2nd gear, assist line full)...Bugatti Veron worked best for me (tried the HKS, Supra as well)...followed the checklist with approx good...ended up with just over 110,000 points...took me about 3 tries...for 5GS, a lot of work, but 1000/1000 now.

This achievement is very similar to "The Completionist" in Motionsports Adrenaline. The Completionist is the hardest achievement (achievement The Completionist worth 100 points)as also Drift Lap in Forza 3 worth 5G. The hardest achievement which may earn too long playing , need more points than 5G. 5G is a pathetic points for this long, and the one of hardest achievement in the game.

Why achievement "Solid Gold" who is easy, also is longest is worth 80G, when "Drift Lap" - the hardest on the game - 5G? This is not believed !

Comment #117 by fbasque
Thursday, October 04, 2012 @ 05:51:23 PM

This is to reinforce that post #23 works as I was able to get this cheevo on my 3rd try using his method. I had about 42K before I started coming down the mountain (where the radio antenna is)... Once I got 100K I simply finished the track and I had a couple of more turns to do. The last half of the track **is** a lot easier to do drifting! You have gravity by your side and the track itself is wider and more forgiving.

alright guys for still anybody who hasnt gotten this achievement. you dont have to be the best because i certainly am not.

above me ^^^^^ do steps 1-7, the chose the bugatti.

pre-race menu, go to tuning set up, put your tire pressure to 40 for both of them, and step 12 above me. apply changes and go race. take a couple trys at this because i took about 5 tries, 1st= 67k(Mitsubishi) 2nd= 96k(bugatti) 3rd= 94k(bugatti) 4th= 76k(mitsubishi) then finnaly 109k(bugatti) just kepp trying is all i got to say.

Sunday, December 09, 2012 @ 04:24:00 PM

I got this one using the Bugatti Veyron as mentioned earlier. The first lap I ran was in second gear and I fell short by about 10,000 points. The second lap was in first gear and I was drifting at every possible opportunity since I am not good enough to string together long combos. My largest was 4,800 points. So very glad I got this one out of the way. Was quite aggravating.

Comment #122 by Echrothy
Wednesday, December 19, 2012 @ 11:08:31 AM

Fairly easy, got it on my 2nd try. My recipe for success was a S-class Audi, Fujimi Kaido, no assists, automatic gearbox and loads of handbrake and rewind.

Wednesday, April 10, 2013 @ 02:31:21 PM

Did 65,878 points on my 1st try and 75,049 on 2nd. It's pain in the ass achievement no doubt so Im gona leave it there for while and try again later as for now Im gona concentrate in season play

Thursday, May 30, 2013 @ 07:00:28 PM

FINALLY!!!!!!!!! I used the EVO all assists off and manual transmission. I could def. feel the car getting easier and easier to chain drifts lap after lap, and it took me 4 complete laps to get this achievement after all these years.

Lap 1:68k
Lap 2:82k
Lap 3:97k---aaaarrrrrggggghhhhh
Lap 4:110k!!!!!!!!!!!

Now just one achievement left....yep, all golds. Luckily i've been furiously working on that one for a while, but wanted to make it my last achievement in the game. Only 3% left, and it's looking good.

Turn 10 take note: NEVER make this achievement and the all gold again!

Wednesday, June 05, 2013 @ 05:58:47 PM

Got this on my first try, with rewind though, of course. I think i used it in more than half the drifts. Anyways, I did it with the Mitsubishi HKS, no assists, and got 134,000. Pretty fun I think. My highest combo was around 10,000. I wanted to get this one out of the way because I've been reading that it was the hardest achievement in the game. Turns out it wasn't that hard, in my opinion. Thanks achievement hunters for the advice!

Go to the storefront and search for drift. Sort by Most Downloaded and buy the Fairlady Z '03 tuning setup. Load it up, go to Leaderboards>Drift>AWD>Fujimi Kaido>Fujimi Circuit. Got it on first try with 116K score.

I will never get this achievement. I'm so bad at drifting. I can't even get 10,000 points let alone 100,000!!!! Everytime I tried to drift, I always hit walls. I tried to handbrake but still end up hitting walls/concrete. I think I'm doing something wrong. Oh well I guess I'm going to have to stick with 995/1000 :(

Comment #134 by FunkyKong
Wednesday, December 18, 2013 @ 12:49:24 AM

Got it with #4's approach. First attempt was 93K. Tried the EVO for 2nd attempt which I aborted with only 40K at the top. Third attempt went back to #4 and barely got it...100,241 (whew). All together it took 2 hrs 15 min with all rewinds.

Wished I'd seen comment #23 about the hot lap first. Used quick race which is great until the AI cars crossed the finish line and you can't rewind any more... D'OH!!!!!

Now to finish season 6, buy the last manufacturer car for 1,000,000 in the process, then start the event list "grid grind." Maybe. Will NOT be buying FM4 now, that's for da*n sure...I have way too many other games waiting to be played to spend 100 hours on basically one achievement.

Just got it with the 2nd try :D
Bugatti without any help (abs...etc. turned off) and only driving in the 2nd gear, sometimes 3rd, when there was enough place.

Thanks everyone for posting your settings :)

Not even that hard, used the Evo, stability and traction control off. First try 86k second 114, use lots of rewinds and you'll be golden.

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 @ 09:53:48 AM

Bugatti Veyron, Fujimi Kaido, Hot Lap, Autobrakes and ABS on, rest of settings off - got it in first run. Takes a lot of rewinding and patience.
