Okay, first off, for those that will doubt me completely, this is 100% true.

I was driving my normal decker routine today for fun, and on the way down was behind some lsow ass explorer, and they finally pulled over, so I passed and was taking these 4 turns pretty quickly, sliding nicely(you know the rest), and so I am coming around this turn real hot and back end starts coming out(what I planned) and then I lok 25 ft ahead of me and there is this cop making a U turn to go down the hill in his car and im like "SHIT" and slam on the brakes and he just comes to a stop, and I like screech to a stop and my heart is just pounding, I try and act like he was the one that caused me to slam on my brakes so I waved him to go ahead, he rolled down his window and said to me "I hope you know what your doing" and I said "uhh, yeah, I got it under control" "thats good, be careful, dont let me catch you doing that again" "I understand" and then hejust drove in front of me and pulled over just waitin for speedies to come down(like me).

so today was a pretty close encounter Id say, Dragon was almost caught, but wasnt. so lets drink to this

I am one lucky mother fucker. pardon my language, but damn.

I was even planning on camera mounting this one, could you imagine that? camera mount on the outside of my car, then the cop asking to view the fottage? then I would have been fucked.

thats when I'd "drop" (read: SLAM) the camera down on the ground if he glances away or craftfully drop it on the LCD viewfinder. Rather do that than have points on liscence, or paying a lawyer to fix the ticket.

OK let me get this straight...you were drifting down a mtn road.

You are drifting as you see this cop ahead.

You slam on the brakes (in the middle of a drift) and kept control enough to stop normally.

Either you are full of shiot, very lucky or very good.

I'll leave it up for debate.

Not calling BS, just calling.....

Glad you got away !

I drifted through intersections before (un-purposefully). Honestly, I wasnt looking if cops were around. Just looking at how not to hit anything.

I hate trying to sound big-headed or anything, but I am actually pretty good. I drive that road all the time, and I know how to control the car the way I want. you just need to know where to put the wheel after you brake, cuz I was turning right, so back end was left, and wheel was straight, slam the brakes, turn wheel left for like .5 seconds, then back right till its straight, and then you can handle it from there if you know what your doing(like I do), I drive that road all the time, and know all the turns, and I have been in that situation before(sliding then brakes), so I had it undercontrol, the cop just startled me.

and no, it isnt BS, I wish I had my cam rolling, but imagine what the cop would say if he saw the cam mounted on the outside of the car, 'son, Ima have ta take a look at that there camruh....wow, looks like a lot of 'wreckless driving' to me, thatll be 1500$ plus your car, thanks'

I'd take that anyday over my 84 in a 55. (ok I was doing my nominal 100 mph highway cruise speed, but he dosn't know that.)
