Default How to drive?

I know how to drive, but thres a couple of things I'm working on, and would like to know the techically way to do it, instea dof half assing it as I am...

Launching- I've been reving it to 3500ish and feathering the clutch
Sideways- pop the clutch and turn the wheel
Drifting- go 3/4 throttle midway through turn
Powerbrake- heel on brake toes of gas, rev to 4000, pop clutch

If I'm missing anything let me know...
Any advice will be appriciated...
Again, these are the ways I've been doing it, idk if they're right or if I'm going to end up blowing my rear, destroy my clutch etc...

Thanks,
Adam

Drifting there is more then that, Apex the turn still, clutch kick and let the wheel go all the way to lock stay WOT then clutch kick again and snap the wheel back the other way and then you have done a basic drift, start in 1 gear till u get the hang of it then work up to 2nd then 3rd. You will notice the wheel will turn on its on and the car will straighten back up on it own when you slow down. Practice and be safe.

Just curious, but why are you trying to power brake in a car with a clutch? Seems pointless to me.

Yes, if all else fails, rev to the moon and pop the clutch!

Another comment about drifting: Make sure your power steering pump is up to task especially if you are going to opposite lock. LS1 cars with the reservior on the pump tend to overheat.
Also a good pointer for someone who is just learning; start out slow, learn controlling steering angle and throttle modulation with doing doughnuts of different circumfrences. Fun and educational!
