    Not a save, but a rather stupid off. So much Buttonwillow dust the screen goes dark. Skip to 3:05, stay till the end.

    Lots of 'saves' driving an S2000, but this is a pretty funny one that comes to mind. Good save by Dustin to not punt me off T1 at ~100 mph, then my slide to the edge of the track.

    well the first two videos, I had a tire going flat and found the right front control arm pivot bolt had backed out. Giving variable toe. Next 2 were old worn tires. But still they are a handful.
    That's not a Typo, I just can't spell no so well.

    It was an experiment. I was working on my "stick" angle.
    To the right of The Sheriff. Isn't everyone?

    Entry speed is far different than cornering speed

    Touchy touchy man. Comment was directed at AWD, not you specifically.

    BUT since I mentioned it. I am doing about those times in a car with 2 less drive wheels and half the HP.

    Isn't the purpose of this thread to celebrate how bad we are at driving?

    Here are a few more documented instances where I soiled me knickers.

    hehe. You probably just tape the accelerator down and just turn that wheel thingy and know it will stick. That's cute.

    I actually have to gas/brake/trail brake, downshift going into corners, and shed tons of speed, but not too much to overbrake, but just enough to make it into a corner.

    2 diff animals. For example, WSIR T5 to T9, you probably don't need to brake ever. Just flat out and turn the wheel thingy. Try that in the evo. Or from Cotton corner to Lost hills, some miatas never brake ever, but flat out and just turn the wheel thingy. Evo you can't do that...You actually have to do more than just turn the wheel thingy.

    This one day in the rain taught me sooooo much about driving. Especially since the conditions went from wet to progressively dryer to dirt.
