well I was out tonight making up my own course at a fred meyers parking lot between all the posts and stuff since we have some snow on the ground, "practiced" around it for about an hour and a half and also helped an employee get their vehicle started(karma points for the day...).

Anyways, short of messing around more, driving with someone else etc... I'm wondering what I can do to learn about this type of driving while I'm just sitting here at home on the computer.

Any good resources?

i own a book called "Rally Navigation" by martin holmes. Its an awesome book interviewing all sorts of people, from the 80's and 70's. its not a lot of driving technique, such as understanding your co-driver. great pictures, and a great read :)

I have both of those games. Rallysport is a little more realistic. I guess u could search for writeups on line. Ive been playing around with driving styles for a few years now. If u want I can tell u some tips for drifting and sliding cars around. I took 3rd in my first rally x. And bassic car control.

Extremely cheap for what you get out of it. May even get you out of a "Stunting" ticket at Fred's parking lot (do they ticket people for stunting down there?)

It's called reckeless driving, or at least neglegent. Probably cost a license too.

Yep, enroll in the rally school. Everybody I know who took it said it helped them.

Rally video games work too. They'll give you the basic idea of how to set up a car for a turn or drift. They'll teach you about how to pick a line too. The school will let you apply what the game teaches you. (this from a guy who never took the school, but consistantly places on the podium)
