Start out soft, with low grip rear tires. You'll transition from one direction to the other slowly, and your speed will be lower. Increase rear grip, and your speed can increase. Increase spring rates, and you can transition quicker. You don't need a whole lot of changes to start drifting.
This ^^^^ is gold. Thank you!!! Made me realize that going too stiff is actually not a very good idea for a beginner. This has to be a part of every newbie drifting guide.
