OMFG...I got this on video...but honestly i was not trying to show off at all. I was not planning on this at all.
Ok to start so people dont bash me to much....
I was going the usuall speed I go down this mountain road, which is between 35-70. THe turns are nice, no bumbps or anything. All smooth turns. So i was going down this road, Austin had my camera out cause we were checking out if you could see through the windshield at night for a movie(Im buying a camera mount for it thats why we were doing it). So i was taking this slight left handed turn(you can take it pretty fast at like 85, and I was travelling about 70 the last i looked and I just felt something jerk and the car shifts, looses control and I see a dodge truck on the left turning onto the highway. Im like Fuck..so i correct it a little, then i slide the other way, towards a guardrail(Got the clutch in pushing brakes but not slamming them.)I slow it down enough to turn away from the guardrail, and Im back on my way.

OMFg

the cars fine though so thats good. Very scray OMG

Ill post the video later when i upload and edit it.

i have a sand bag in the back...it shifted because i didnt secure it. I felt it move, and the back end just went loose. Then i got a little understeer(i believe is what its called) and bam...I was headed toward a guard rail.


I went back to the location of the "incident"...holy shit....I dont believe i made it in one peace down that hill.


That turn was insane...the end of it had a little "extra" turn to it.



eh..

Drive Safe everyone

ha, that little "extra turn" is called a decreasing radius turn. its where the turn keeps getting tighter as you go through it. those are difficult turn and can mess you up bad. that is where left foot or normal trail braking comes in handy very well.

my friend ran his car off of the road in a decreasing radius turn while trying to follow me....moral of the story, know your raod by heart way before you ever try to push it on it. If you don't know every turn and know exactly which ones are decreasing radius, then you shouldn't be pushing hard.

another little tip...watch the lines on the road, if they keep dipping behind the mountain, don't accelerate. it means the road keeps turning, the second you see them start to straighten out, you can start to accelerate. now this is not better than knowing all the apex's by heart, but for a road that you are new to, it does help out some to still be able to drive quickly

How do you best secure sandbags in the trunk? I put two 60#s back there, one on each side, but I don't want them sliding around.

I put mine inthe spare tire...it takes some work, and like twenty thick garbage bags, i just slip it in the empty space in there...very tight.
Great spot, its centered over hte tires.
