ya right...you just wanted to try and top my airplane incident

I had the rear end try to come around on me once in the middle of the slalom...light tap of the break while i eased it around the next cone corrected it for me.

And oh ya you can get the back end to swing around on our cars...it's just a matter of getting the back tires to lose some traction and then wammo, you've done a 180

Or drop a rear tire into the grass coming through a corner. That'll spin you real quick.

Not that I have ever done something so goofy as that, especially near the timing tower at around 50MPH...

I rolled my Trans-Am off of somthing like that. I was taking the turn, one similar to that one, very wide and i was pretty close to the edge, the right tires just went a little too far and dropped off at the same time. Then it all went to hell. Let's just say I'm not gonna trry that in my Focus.

Glad it didn't get worse than what it would've been.
