And how to master it ?, i suppose that a bike I used today has this, because when I drift is harder to control , and with a kart I never had problem drifting.

When you drift with a kart, it drifts outwards/away from the point you start drifting. Inward drift is the opposite, although the one here starts going out for a split second before coming in. Inward is more natural, for me.

So a normal vehicle is outward drifting--the center of gravity is toward the back wheels, which causes the kart, ATV, or bike to swing outward. A special type of vehicles (the sport bikes) are inward drifting start drifting outward but immediately switch their center of gravity toward the front wheels, meaning that the bike swings inward.

If you want to see the difference in practice, try a round with the Varmint and then try a round with the Jet Bike. There's a huge difference when you try to turn.

I've noticed certain turns (Rainbow Road N64's first turn) that are near impossible to drift with inward.

Conversely, there are some sharp turns (Donut Plains) where are bike can make a near full 180 beautifully.

I hear a lot of people saying that inward drifting is OP, but actually, imo outward drifting is better. With those 180 turns, you simply have to start drifting earlier and learn how to control it, while will inward, you have to drift closer to the bend. Outward drifting is more versatile.

Outward drifting is a lot better for grabbing arcs of coins too, as well as Building up Mini Turbos above Blue Sparks.

Doesn't inward drifting build up yellow turbo's quicker since it makes sharper turns?

Inward drifting is definitely an advantage for those sharp 180 turns. There have been multiple times where my biker was able to overtake a four-wheeler easily while skimming on the edge of the track.

Then again it boils down to the skill of the driver and certain vehicle setups.
