The first thing you're going to need is the BMW M5, which you unlock in Chapter 4. This car will set you back 125,540 at the Drift dealer, but you're going to be needing it anyway for another achievement. During this chapter, you'll also unlock "The Drift King" in the Northeast part of the map. This is really the best option as there are a lot of turns to give you additional score. You can do this with the stock M5, but throwing additional upgrade cards at it won't hurt.

If you've gotten to this part of the game, you've already gotten drifting down well enough. If you haven't, the most important thing is to not hit any walls either during or after your drift. Hitting a wall completely resets your multiplier down to 1, so avoid them even if you have to cut a drift short. This doesn't apply to hitting cars.

The other important thing is to manage your boost. Save as much as you can for straight paths going between curves. When you boost, you 'lock' your multiplier so it can't decrease, which lets you save a x3 multiplier from one curve to the next.

With those two tips, you should see 350k easy. I was able to get over 500k on my first run of the trial. Avoid the walls, and you're solid.

This is definitely easier on Whipsnake Loop on the west of the map. It's a longer route and my speedwall shows top scores of 600K+, whereas the scores on Drift King top out around 460K.

The BMW M5 can be bought after chapter 4 and by completing this chapter you also unlock the drift trial "The Drift King" that is your best choice for the 350,000 drift points.
