Drift Racing Veteran Chris Forsberg’s Three Keys To Winning In ‘Need For Speed’

Recently, we’ve been introducing you to some of the icons of the Formula Drift circuit, and getting their takes on the deep, authentic customization options found in the latest entry in the Need for Speed series. Last week, we put a spotlight on Ryan Tuerck, and now we shift gears to focus on another racing champion, Chris Forsberg.

One of the few true iron men on the Formula Drift scene, Chris Forsberg has been customizing and racing cars for nearly 20 years. Forsberg didn’t come from a professional racing background, he started from the ground up, and now has more podium finishes to his name than any other Formula Drift racer.

In the above video, Forsberg takes us through what a drift racer (or Need for Speed player) should focus on to become a champion. You need to keep track of your line (how close you slide around corners), angle (how sideways your car is as you turn) and style (all the other little intangibles). Master those three things and you’re on your way to the podium.

Check in again later this week, as Chris Forsberg will delve into Need for Speed‘s car customization. Need for Speed is currently available for Xbox One and PS4
