Slow is fast brother...
The rear "straightaway" was a different surface than the rest of the course, which can be seen in the first of the following pictures. I am the only one who did NOT spin going into that corner seen in the first pic. That back stretch is literallly driving on ice. There was a turn on that stretch...just enough to make you tap the brakes (and change surfaces). It was the fastest part of the track, alot of cars going 70-95 through there.

I have bad lift-throttle oversteer. I got off of it, changed surfaces, and turned back left at the same time. Hence the bad slide. I was at about 65 when I spun, hence the distance. Heres some pics. And yes, it is a standard front bumper, it was explained in my intro pics.
