not really surprised. the bike has less angular momentum that it has to counter

Not really a battle was it? The car drifts better as it has four wheels, the bike goes quicker as its power to weight is much better. OK so drifting a bike takes immense skill, but I don't get how the car comparison helped.

Perhaps if the car had a bit more oomph...

Drifting is a joke in the racing arena. Stop drifting and you may had a chance.

Mikeado-
The V-8 may have more torque, but not by much. Not by much at all. Wankels are very powerful for their size. I'd venture that rotary engines are better, however, if you're going with practicality, your typical reciprocating engine is best. Parts are cheaper, more available, easier to work on, proven over the course of 150-odd years, more reliable, etc. Currently, I think it's only Mazda that's mass producing them. At least I know that if I need to, I can easily order a new set of pistons and bearings and have them changed out fairly quickly and easily...I don't think swapping a rotor is as easy. If they're anything like their R/C scale brethren, I *do* know they're nearly impossible to get running properly after being torn down.

Actually I'd say it's just cheaper to buy and easier to maintain than a turbocharged rotary engine. Plus an LS has more power and a smoother engine curve (as there's no turbo lag, of course), making it more predictable during hard and fast driving. Also torque. Rotary units don't have nearly as much torque as a big V8.

As for using an RX-7 over a Corvette? The chassis is probably better suited to driving like this. As tn11 says, it's a well-balanced car. Important when sideways.

This was pure epic. Pissed myself laughing when I saw the R/C car start with the other two vehicles.

@tn11: it's actually quite common for people to drop (especially) engines from chevy's "LS" range into an rx-7. I guess there's something pervertedly appealing about putting a big V8 into not only a japanese car, but a japanese car the initially had a motor already different from the rest of the jap cars. (that would be a rotary, for the people who don't know)

on another note, the motorcycle doesn't seem to really get much of an angle. now if you really wanna see some bikes drifting, look up a motorcross event. (forgive me for not knowing the exact term for this type of motoX event) The one with the old school looking dirt bikes, the ones that appear to be kind of bulky but flat at the rear, going around on a round dirt speedway type track. Those guys really get some angle and do more of what we would call a drift. plus they shoot gravel everywhere with the rear tire and it looks really cool. also if you're in the audience you sometimes get hit with gravel, it's nea

Is that an LS-7 in an RX-7? Why? the RX-7 has great balance, but is underpowered, so I understand the need for a new engine, but why not just go with a stripped corvette gs? During the slalom the bike wasn't really drifting. If a motorcycle lost to a car in a slalom I'd be shocked.

I think that r/c was a Traxxas Jato that was converted to brushless. That was some awesome camera work and drifting!
