Though it's technically probably the most tenuous aspect I actually see the in-universe reason for 'the drift' - I assume it has to do with reaction times - 'being' the Jaeger rather than just 'piloting' it.
The explanation was the 'neural load' of piloting a jaeger was too much for a single brain - drifting allowed the two pilots to remain in 'neural synch' while sharing the 'load' between two human brains.
Works for me about as well as an underwater portal that spits out monsters does.
