With enough imagination, a Hot Wheels or Matchbox die-cast car can do almost anything. But in real life, their abilities are limited to pretty much just rolling forward. Unless they're in the hands of Phil Foss who's actually found a way to get Hot Wheels and other toy cars to drift around corners like Ken Block was at the wheel.

So what's the secret to getting your Hot Wheels cars to drift? There's two parts to this recipe. The first is a low-friction surface that's slick enough to let the plastic wheels on your die-cast cars slide. You're free to experiment with a variety of materials until you find the right one, or you can simply buy Phil's Driftpad for $15 which features an adhesive backing so you can stick it to whatever material you use for your Hot Wheels setups.
