I am not smart enough to understand the argument, or if you got it right. I 
do however think you are wrong in your assumption that those of us not 
competing on the byways are immune. I let the back 2 tires on my first Audi Q 
(1989 90) and one day on an entrance ramp something really strange happened 
which resulted in me leaving the roadway. I have played around in snow 
forcing skids etc but I can still recall the confusion I felt that day. I for 
one am not so quick to dismiss the bite of the spider.
