    This is not my video, but i figured i'd post it here as an alternative to get this achievement. I used a Smith Thunderbolt (upgraded once), and I got this with a small amount of effort. I'm terrible at drifting and this was the only spot I could get it at.

    JēmusurobātoThanks! I used the Smith Custom 200, & it wasn't that bad. Trial & error was all it took. Upvoted.

    Styles PluralPlease note that you MUST be in a mission to unlock this achievement! There will be a green ticking bonus timer clock in the top right of the screen. This is how you know you're in a mission and you'll be able to earn points while driving a vehicle to earn achievements.

    The person in the video is playing the tutorial mission of the DLC. You get this mission after completing the Witness level of the DLC. After that you'll be in Union Train Station. Walk into the golden T marker and press cn_X to start the mission. Beat up the two guys in the street then the game will tell you to get into a marked car (the one used in the video). Get into it and then you can drive to central park and perform this drift trick in the grass.

    If you go to your map(press select) and go to the upper-left hand corner, you will see an Empire Diner and a road leading down from it( it curves a little and is on the left side). To the left of this road are three gray "nubs" that kind of look like small fingers coming off the side. On the side of them closest to the Empire Diner, there is a large grassy area with trees on it. Drive here, and when you have speed built up, hold the emergency brake and tilt the left stick right and left quickly. This will take a few tries. You can also try to do it after not having much speed, like 20 mph and tilting the left stick side to side. You can also do this while trying to go in circles if you can't get it just going side to side. Remember that you have to be in a mission for the points to count.

    The RamblerFully upgraded cars do ridiculous amounts of wheelspin at low speeds, might help to kick your cars back end out left and right. Also, the tires furthest to the left in the garage make the car more slidey.
    Good solution though, cheers!

    The Fury I84IGood solution. Works like a charm.

    First of all, make sure you have at least one grenade in your armament.

    Second, start a mission at the docks at the South of the map like 'Limo Movin'

    Once the timer starts go out to the long docks car park where you will see a number of trucks. (Trucks dont require to be broken into. Speeds it up a little)

    Hotwire and park at least four of these very close together.

    Stand near to your car and throw a grenade at the parked trucks and you will see at least a 4x Demolition multiplier appear.

    Hop quickly into your car and you will only need to do a 50-60 drift for the achievement to pop.

    Worked first time for me, just do it before the multiplier runs out. You would likely have time for a second go by parking cars again if you don't manage first time.

    I have found a similar way to do the 'Jacked Jumper' achievement which I will post too.

    Hope this helps folks.

    KILLSHOT666Holy crap, that totally worked! I was trying to get this in the park, when I figured id try this method. So I threw a grenade in the street, blew up a couple of cars, hopped in the car, did about 40drift pts. Worked like a charm!

    randy2084GREAT SOLUTION!! Works even better if you can get a 5x Demolition multiplier.
