apparently your 2nd hand rear tyres are better than your fronts.
let the front pressure down a tad and pump the back right up. cheapest bandaid solution i can think of. second to that, learn how to drive, blat strategy, king swings and scandinavian flicks don't equate to drifting.

Not on public roads I hope? If so this is in order Image

If it is on track or drift course, the best thing to learn the course before attempting, figure out what speed you want to attack the corner and alike. The best way to learn how to drift a falcon is to attempt it in a smaller car to better figure out what to do or what not to do.

Said speeding into a corner and trying to slide via tromping on the pedal doesn't come near to a proper drift.

Have a look via google for reliable information not just fast and furious related s**t.

Have you tried doing a simple handbrake turn / drift. Figure that out first and you should overcome this understeer drama.

Unless your tyres are f**k and or rooted you are going to get into this situation.

i'm glad its post ed coz umbrella handbrakes and handbrakis just do NOT go hand in hand. besides for typical low speed street drifting (not that i condone such thing) if you need the handbrake then you need to learn how to drive.
