Going backwards while flooring it in 2nd?

hey all, i just got back from my weekend in Tahoe, which marked my first 
time ever taking my q up to the snow.  Wow...there wasnt much on the 
ground but my friend and i went to the Squaw Valley parking lot and found 
some snow/ice to play on.  Awesome is all that i can say.  I was only 
able to do maybe 15 mph, but it was a small area and wow...hehe..

I would lock the diff then start going in circles and get the rear to 
kick out, then i would modulate the steering and the gas to get me going 
in circles....sideways

I even got to a point where there was enough momentum to cause my car to 
start going backwards while i was flooring it in 2nd at about 4000 
RPM....needless to say it was fun as hell...andi never hit full steering 
lock for fear of losing my steering pump again...BTDTNDIA

I was even able to get that axis spin at one point...awesome...i gotta do 
it again in a few weeks..

later all,
