The main thing to remember about Zangief's drive impact is that it's the only way to combo into his grabs. After landing one you can SPD, Russian Suplex, or Level 3 super. If you hit them out of the air (rare, but it does happen), you can even use his level 1 super or EX/OD Borscht Dynamite. These grabs are typically the optimal option for damage, too. The exception is if you only have a level 2 super. In that instance, headbutt into level 2 + EX/OD borscht dynamite is probably optimal...although that uses a lot of resources.

If you hit them with the wall splat version the optimal combo is a slightly delayed hell stab, EX/OD Lariat, and a very, very low to the ground EX/OD Borscht Dynamite. It uses a ton of meter, but it hits for roughly 45% damage. If using that much meter isn't an option, you can hell stab followed by level 1 instead. At the very least you'll want to hell stab into lariat for decent damage with zero resources (or execution) needed.

Looking to be stylish? It isn't optimal, but you can do a cross-up body splash into a level 1 super. It hurts less than doing a normal heavy SPD, but it's a fun way to end a match if you know it will kill. You can also cross-up splash into hell stab/lariat to change sides, but at that point you might as well go for the suplex to add some style points.
