What to do:
Go to the main menu and select FREE PLAY, HOT LAP
Car: Mitsubishi, HKS Time Attack Evolution
Assists & Difficulty: Turn all OFF. Shifting Manual.
Track: Fujimi Kaido "Full Circuit".
-First things first. Right after you start the race, press left on the Directional to bring up the DRIFT POINT box in the upper right.
-VERY IMPORTANT! The Rewind feature is your friend! Don't forget about it! Use it and abuse it!
-Manual Drive, keep it in SECOND GEAR. As you go into the turn, lift your finger from the right trigger, hit A to start drifting and gently tap the right trigger to keep the drift going. With practice you will get a feel for it. You don't need to be going all that fast to pull off a decent drift.
-Shoot for 1000 points each turn to practice. When I finally started to get the hang of it I was getting anywhere between 1500 to 3000 points per turn. Sometimes more.
-Squeeze the max amount of points you possible can out of each turn. If you feel you could have done better or you hit the side, rewind and retry till you get it right.

Here are the number of drift points I had at the start of each of the stone tunnels. I feel this is good reference for people on about how many drift points you should have. Restart if you need to.
This is for Fujimi Kaido "Full Circuit" NOT "Full Circuit Reverse"!
First tunnel: This is just after first turn in race.
Second tunnel: 26,197
Third and fourth tunnel (they are right after eachother): 72,894
Fifth tunnel (last): 100,019
Finished with 110,142

Good luck!

This is a guide I wrote and posted on back in November 2009. I originally wrote it after purchasing several suggested tuning setup's from the Storefront and having no luck at all. This is the major difference between this guide and others. It requires 0 credits and is done in FREE PLAY! No need to purchase cars, upgrades or tuning setups. It also includes the drift score I had at certain points on this track just for reference.
This guide has helped many people and you are welcome to visit the original post to view the success stories before you start to invest the time.
