ok so yesterday i let my dad drive us to Santa Rosa(25 miles of canyon). So its wet outside and i am telling him my car doesnt do very good in the rain(stiff suspension, light rear end and enough power to loose it if you floor it) so where going, he passes 3 cars on the normal highway and we ge to the canyons. Hes going about 45-50 and barely not sliding around corners. He takes one turn and gasses it a little-bit. Boom were sliding sideways in our lane. hes like "haha i got it to slide" Im like shit hes gonna kill us. He continues going about 45-50 and we get through the first canyon. Then theres a stop sign were u have to take a left. Here he drifts until about 40 mph redlining first for a coupla seconds. At this point i am certain hes nuts. So we get 3/4 of the way over the other canyon road and there is a 1 mile steep downhill part with switchbacks all the way down. While we are descending down the hill he pushes the brake to slow down for a turn, and once again, we are sliding sideways. He corrects it perfectly, and says "wow, this thing has a very light rear end"....he doesnt freak out at all..lol. I drove home, no questions asked.

Sounds to me like your old man knew exactly what he was doing, and showed you where the limits of your car really are.

hahaha... sounds like something I'd do. I always test the limits of my car, successfully scaring all passengers and oncoming traffic. And apparently, on icy roads, the limiting speed on a 90 degree turn is less than 25 mph...

its tight driving with my dad on the track, because he seriously owns it up so well. Just passing other very high performance cars in his basically stock audi 1.8t wagon(quattro).

We were test driving some other cars, and i was thoroughly astonished by his ability to heal and toe a downshift in under 1 second...
