That is when you add more throttle and let the LSD dig you straight.

If you lift you will see where you were coming from.

Ecopia EP100's are very quiet in high slip angles

which is kinda counter intuitive, but true. The fwd bonneville cars need to keep it in mind too, getting slideways? neutral ok, engine brake, ruh roh.

If they'd experienced all of it at a more appropriate venue, the same might be true. I don't mean to excuse their actions (although it does seem like they took pains to get away from traffic and pedestrians before starting to stretch the car's legs).

As for the pickup, there was nothing nefarious. The guy was just making a turn after a stop sign. A pickup truck, slick road, some off-camber to the turn, and he was toast. It's probably not exactly the same loss of control as the Porsche incident, which more than likely began with snap oversteer.

But still completely misses the cause: lack of control. Can't see that it matters whether that lack is from speed, acceleration, or yakking on your cell phone.

Cool

Youtube is fullof videos of people turning into another road and spinning out.

One winter the parking lot was iced over where I use to work. A co worker asked I wait til they got going before leaving. I drove to that side of the parking lot and did figure 8s while the skid control light flickered constantly. I did this for 3 minutes then something quit working or Ihit too much slickness and did a 360. Boy that was fun.
