driving into work today i make a right hand turn a little uphill into the main road and then into a parking lot, there was no one around and the road i'm turning into is really wide, so i was driving about 25 mph, i believe, and i turned really hard into the turn expecting something to happen. by something i mean me sliding because of my soft 14 inch tires or the back end coming out. but since i have FWD nothing happened. but the handling was amazing! it was like the front of my car had a huge magnet in it and was stuck to the road in front of me, i took the turn with grace and put it in 2nd, and parked my car. i wonder if there's anything i could do to powerslide, maybe try it on gravel??

it words great with RWD, cause you can be turning, and just turn REALLY hard, and floor it, itll drift....try it in a empty parking lot, let off the gas, and turn as hard as you can

yea... 25 mph and a hard turn wont do much. With my integra, I had to at least go about 35 to slide a little bit. You need awd or rwd.

maybe if i pull up on the ebrake and step on the gas halfway thru the turn i can kick out the back end.
