How did he manage that, he wasn't really going maximum attack. Werd.

Looks like he's in a ford


O snaps, that ecr... That track in crap in the braking zones and if your off sideways your fucked, it's like they designed the track to have ruts running across the track. I never run 10/10 out there as it's a track i don't want to drop a wheel at. There is only 1 turn with run off that will not brake your wallet.

Yeah, you're right. I just soaked in the fact that he didn't own a clue in everything he did up until that point.

Yes, he downshifted too abruptly in a braking zone instead of being gentle with the clutch release or better, heel toeing. I just couldn't believe he flipped because of it. Total bonehead deal.

It wasn't the brakes that did it. He downshifted and abruptly let out the clutch and the rear tires lost traction. He didn't have the sense to push the clutch back in and save his own *** (and car).

It is just like doing an e-brake lock up. But in a rear/mid engined car with all the weight of a big block behind you it would be the worst e-brake lock up you could imagine when it comes to being able to control it. The *** end would want to swap ends with the front end in a big way.

Again, heel & toe downshifting or being more gentle with the clutch re-engagement or both would have helped. And pushing the clutch back in at the first indication it was breaking loose might have completely saved his ***. But you could tell from everything else he did up until that point that he was not a driver, didn't know the course, the car, or car control at all.

I am always amazed when people buy powerful, fast cars with big rubber to learn in. By the time they get one out of shape they are going way too fast with way too few skills and very little time or room to save it. The scariest guys in DE1&2 are not the ones in Civics or Minis, they are the ones in Vipers, etc.

Oh it's clear the For GT owner induced shift-lock. It almost seems like he was doing it in other places before it got the best of him, judging by the sounds of his horrible downshifts and extremely early braking. I used to use shift-lock to initiate drifting. It's VERY hard to control because it's a VERY fast reaction...much faster than using the e-brake because of the weight transfer that happens when one does shift-lock (and it usually means they are already on the brakes taking weight off the rear tires). It's violent.

Well, I know it was the clutch drop he did, but it looked like he was holding the brakes after he lost it, but I did forget about it being a mid engine car, so it could have just been the weight transfer causing the rear to continue to come around like you said. Either way, what a stupid way to total a car.
