    I like how my S goes where I put the wheel, even if I try to force it to spin..


    not so much for these guys!

    I think some of the fears of my passengers when I punch it, is they expect to spin out and die... even in a S85 or P100D, the car just goes where you put it.

    obviously nothing can take a 90 turn at 100, but it's 1,000x more controllable than these things!

    Nothing makes me happier than idiots getting what they deserve.

    Nothing pisses me off more than idiots putting other people at risk for loss, injury, or death.

    I think a lot of those issues in he video are due to inability to control oversteer and/or torque steer in RWD config

    In motorsport we call it running out of talent! Agree it's much harder to do with AWD and decent stability control.

    I’ve spun a couple high hp rwd cars in the distant past (hence ‘sillydriver’). It is amazing how forgiving my p85d is. I know from experience it’s harder to skid than 4wd ICE sports cars like a Carrera 4s or an Audi R8 (saved all those skids). It would be fun to discover where the limit is on a skid pad, but I’m not going to try it on the road.
