When I end up too hot in a corner, I blip the brakes and counter-steer like a motherfuxer. Do a few drift days to learn how to control the car in case of an emergency and you will feel much safer.

I need to figure out how I'm going to get back there. Every time I've looked at that water temp gauge, oil temp gauge, AFR gauge, oil pressure gauge, and whatever else, everything has been fine. Time to stop pretending it won't be.
I was the same way. Then I installed a bunch of LED/alarms to go off it something goes outside my parameters, now I never look at gauges other than RPM once in a while.

I'm actually working on getting to this point now. A single 16x2 LCD connected to the Megasquirt that turns red and lets me know what is out of range, otherwise it doesn't show anything. Computer can check gauges a lot more often than I can.
