Unhappy Lost control of my car today.

Coming from college today I come up to this red light. I wait for the green light to make a left turn. So theres like 2 cars in the back of me and I go ahead and make the left turn but as Im turning the car felt like the back of my car starts to slide a little, as soon as a make the complete turn, the car starts to spin the tires and goes from right to left like crazy, I try to take control of the steering wheel but i couldent control it. Finally I push the brake till I had control of the car. I went from one lane to another and almost to the center lane. Luckily their werent any cars to my sides and no oncoming traffic. The road felt like if their was ice or something on it. Me trying to do the burnout wasnt intentional. Gotta admitt that I got a little scared their for a moment.

These cars can do it real quick. One thing that helps is to have some really good tires (for wet road). Soft rubber, too. Sticky. for dry road.

But on icy road, no tire will save you.

You, along with everyone else, need to go play with your car on a Sunday, in an empty giant parking lot.

You can learn how it will handle in vaious situations.

Basically get sum drifting practice in

But make sure its an empty parking lot
Away from any residential areas
Cuz pple tend to call the cops more often now than they used to, ever since tokyo drift came out
