Re: 101

so, you call travelling around corners experiencing controlled understeer, and
other corners experiencing controlled oversteer, adjusting cornering attitude
with the throttle are statistical non-events to your (of course) true blue,
gods-truth event?


gravel road today.  entry fast, lift off, oversteer, hit apex, power applied,
and here we go, corner exit, awd drift, rear tucks, and we're off...

another data point.

so you can't tell me how to get a spider bite on my cars.  good.  neither can
i.  neither could walter rohrl (in my ur-q).  you can.  fine.  i guess you get
to keep your cars...

we agree on something.

that wasn't so hard was it?
