Brendan Rudack wrote last week suggesting to "make a sharp turn(full lock)
and nail the gas in first gear" for spin thrills.  
This is a sure way to shorten the life of those outer front CV joints.  I
avoid using full lock, and I am especially light on the throttle when in
parking situations requiring full steering lock.
