Getting Started

To begin, head over to the Drifted Arcade, where you can find Madalin Stunt Cars 3 in the “Top rated Drifted games.

First off, if you wish to enjoy the excellent graphics that the game has to offer, we recommend pressing the “PLAY FULL SCREEN” button at the bottom of the game.

Choosing Your Car

First things first, let’s find your ultimate weapon of choice among the generous selection of rides that are waiting in your garage.

Be prepared – with an incredible selection of 40 cars on offer; you’re spoiled for choice!

Unlike most free online games, where earning is essential, Madalin Stunt Cars 3 provides the opportunity to enjoy every car that the game has to offer right away, with no need to worry about earning credits.

To check out the full beauty of these machines, you can tick the “AutoRotate” button in the bottom right corner or left-click the mouse and move to rotate the vehicle.

If you wish to zoom in and admire the details close up, you can move the scroll wheel forwards or back to zoom out again.

There are no options for tuning cars in this game, but you can paint your ride any color you wish by using the sliders in the top left of the screen.

If you’re stuck with finding the perfect look, the ‘Random’ button randomly generates a color, which you can press endless times until you find the perfect look.

Deciding Your Playground

Madalin Stunt Cars 3 provides three maps for you to enjoy, located below the color sliders on the left of the screen.

Map 1 - Stunt Arena

Those looking to defy gravity, pull off the craziest stunts imaginable, and chase down their buddies will love the stunt arena.

If you’re looking to pull off some ridiculously hilarious stunts with your friends, the Stunt Arena is the best choice.

Map 2 - Dockyard


Although there aren’t as many ramps and jumps at the dockyard, it presents new challenges by drifting your way through the machinery and containers.

Make sure you explore and keep your eyes peeled for the ultimate drift spots in the least likely locations in the dockyard!

We feel that the dockyard is the ultimate location to show off your drifting skills in Madalin Stunt Cars 3.

Map 3 - Racetrack


If you’re looking to prove you’re capable of setting the ultimate hot lap, the track provides the perfect location to show off your skills.

With a variety of tight twists and turns, make sure you challenge your friends to a head-to-head race - once you’ve got enough practice, of course!

Start Your Engine!

Once you’ve chosen your favorite car, color, and track, it’s time to push your vehicle to (and often beyond) its limits!

In the top right, you’ll see “Single Player” or “Multiplayer” options.

Single-player mode sends you straight to your chosen map, where you’ll be free to roam and practice as much as you wish.

Multiplayer mode allows you to choose your in-game name before deciding whether you’d like to create a lobby for you and your friends or join thousands of online gamers in the public rooms.

If you wish to play against as many players as possible, choose the lobby with the highest player count with spare space.

Alternatively, if you want to get behind the wheel as soon as possible, you can click “Join Random.”

Once you’re in the lobby, you can talk to other gamers in the bottom left for those who enjoy chatting.

Madalin Stunt Cars 3 Controls

Of course, you’re not going to show your buddies who’s the drift boss if you’ve not yet learned the controls.

Use the following keyboard keys to control your vehicle:

  • Up arrow/W - Accelerate
  • Down arrow/S - Brake
  • Left arrow/A - Turn left
  • Right arrow/D - Turn right
  • Space bar - E-Brake
  • F - Activate nitro
  • C - Change camera
  • T - See position on the map
  • R - Respawn/reset car

Once you learn how to use the E-Brake (Space bar) and nitro (F key) functions, you’ll be nailing some epic drifts and stunts in no time at all.

If you’re trying to find your friends on the map, then the “T” key will zoom out and show you exactly where they are.

We recommend getting familiar with the controls and the handling of your favorite cars in Single Player mode before you head to the Multiplayer lobbies and show off your skills to the masses online!

How To Drift In Madalin Stunt Cars 3

Although Drift Hunters will be the better game for those who enjoy drifting at the track, the Stunt Arena and Dockyard in MSC3 will allow you to pull off some epic drifts.

You can choose your favorite car to get started with drifting, and don’t worry about choosing the perfect one, as they’re all equally capable in MSC3 when it comes to drifting.


Since we’ll be playing with the keyboard, this can take some getting used to if you’re used to playing with a wheel or controller.

If things don’t go to plan right away, then don’t panic. Learning the art of drifting takes time and patience, but we assure you it’s worth the wait.

Firstly, we recommend putting some time into getting to grips with learning how the car is reacting and the movement/weight shift.

Madalin Stunt Cars 3 prefers high-speed drifting to lower speeds, so it’s best to begin throwing the car down at faster speeds right away - but try not to crash!

Begin drifting in the larger areas and gradually attempt some riskier moves - remember you can use the nitro with the “F” key to get yourself out of tricky situations.

Step 1 - Initiation (Starting the drift)

Initiation is where you go from driving straight to throwing the car sideways and can be achieved with either of these methods.


Pressing the “Space” bar on your keyboard allows you to lock up the rear wheels, making weight shifting easy when turning at the same time.

The e-brake method is straightforward, but it will slow the car down, making it ideal for entering low-speed corners.

Power Over (Weight Transfer)

Power over is when you point the car in the direction of the corner you’re entering while applying a significant amount of throttle (Up arrow/W key.)

Once the back end starts to come out, you’ll quickly counter-steer into the opposite direction while holding the throttle.

As the car will begin to slow down, it’s essential to try and keep your foot on the gas as much as possible.

As with everything in drifting, practice makes perfect for the initiation, so spend some time learning these techniques to find out which works best for you.

E-brake is likely to be the easiest solution to get you started, and as you grow with confidence, you can make faster initiations/entries.

It’s completely normal to keep spinning out before you get the hang of it – so don’t panic!

Step 2 - Maintaining the drift (Staying sideways)

Once you’ve learned how to initiate and you’re able to get the car sideways, it’s time to learn how to maintain the drift for as long as possible.

Now that the back end has stepped out, you’re going to want to ‘catch’ the weight shift as soon as possible.

With the car sideways, keep the throttle held down as much as possible to maintain speed, and use the “F” key for nitro when necessary.

Don’t forget – you can always hit the brake pedal (down arrow) or E-Brake (Space) if all else fails!

If it feels as though the car is rotating too far and generating too much angle, then ease off the gas, or tap the e-brake until it returns to the correct position while also counter-steering to correct at the same time if necessary.

Maintaining the drift isn’t too complicated once you get the hang of it, be confident and heavy with the throttle and use the brake/e-brake methods and steering to keep the car at the desired angle.

Step 3 – Transitioning (Switching direction)

As you continue to be confident with the heavy throttle, making corrections when necessary will make the process a lot easier as you juggle the steering to achieve the desired angle when switching sides mid-drift.


You want to “catch” the car’s weight as it transitions, and counter-steering with the correct throttle will enable you to do so.

Lift off the throttle and turn the car in the necessary direction before planting the throttle back down to catch the weight shift once it’s facing the correct angle.

This will often take time to learn but be patient, and you’ll soon reap the rewards.

Step 4 - Exiting the Drift

When you want to come out of the drift, allow the weight shift to bring the back end of the car to its desired position, along with full throttle, and give the e-brake (space) several ‘taps’ if necessary until the vehicle is back driving at the correct angle again.

Although drifting can seem a little frustrating to get the hang of things at first, but your patience and persistence will soon be rewarded as you begin scooping up combos to spend on your favorite drift cars and upgrades.
