I wouldn't call it "power sliding" or "drifting," but I do enjoy using the throttle to turn the car.

Yes. You can either slowly go into a corner and hammer it (in a low enough gear), OR come in braking hard, unsettling the rear in the process, and turn in, which will help you rotate.

Once a week after getting a car wash, there's a big empty parking lot with a smooth brick surface that makes it unbelievably easy to slide the car. Lots of fun!

Perfectly said. I didn't vote. I do it every damn time I drive the car but I've driven it about 200 miles in 2017.
