Drifting is best learnt in the dry IMO. Otherwise you'd never properly learn the finer nuances of a controlled breaking of traction.

I personally find it quite a bit easier to drift in the wet; because there's not much chance of the rear easily regaining grip, as there is in the dry. (I'm a firm believer in that beginners should first learn to do things the hard way)

I think we are talking of different things. Preventing the car from spinning out is a bit of a nothing to me - I've never had problems doing that. But it's maintaining a long slide that's the thing.
We're finding different parts ofthe process as the one to study first, that's all.
And it gets sexier if you can drift in a straight line
