Almost had that first slide haha, just need to let go of the wheel on "initiation" like you see in mad drifto videos.

I did a $50 drift event in my track Miata and learned a ton about car control and recovering from scenarios like that. It used to be where if I started sliding, it was like a 25% chance I was able to save it. Now I can usually just ride it out about 90% of the time. Has saved me from having more than a couple time trials sessions DQ'd.

If you watch it slowly, I caught it, thought I had it, corrected back, then realized I didn't have it, and lost it completely.

I had just started using 3rd gear there and was able to combat the understeer with throttle, but that time i used too much.

As much as track drivers may not like drifters I can see and appreciate the ability to pull our of a big slide. Being in sub zero roads for 5 months it's a skill everyone up here should learn.

Automotive cross-training. (but not Cross-Fit)

Part of my drivers training course in Indiana included spin recovery in a full-size truck.
The instructors wet down a section of the school parking lot and made you get up to speed before they locked up the brakes and spun you out.
You had to be able to recover before you could pass the course.
I have no idea if that is standard or not, but it was a really good idea.
That skill has saved my *** many times.

Here's some idiot in a Miata trying too hard to outrun a 991 GT3:



Oh wait, that's me. We were both grinning like fools at the end of the session.

That car is RHD, no arm rest, and I believe in Canada, so aren't those stock Recaro Type R Seats?

Holy ****, is that corner just really bad? like is a small patch really slick? Or are people just going too fast?

What a ******* free-for-all! I can't believe they don't need helmets! And they all get out!

I dunno what car that is, but as soon as I watched the video I knew what was going to happen. They look like flimsy dick ebay seats.

nope, factory recaro. stocks seats don't like to be crashed at anything over 35mph.

Video of my dad getting hit by a Civic last Saturday during his main race. Dumb.

Driver of the Civic just bought that car and that was his first weekend out in it.
