i just knocked off work and the entrance to the freeway is only 2 turns and less than a mile, there was a truck that entered the on ramp a bit before me and i thought that i could get in frfont of it, well i opened it up a little earlier than i probably feel comfortable only to feel the ass end start drifting out, well surprisingly to me i sytayed calm and just rode the slide out as i felt in control for my first rear end slide under power. I thought i did pretty darn good and would have liked to be the person behind me to see how far it actually did slide.

Its very easy to do on cold tires. You could make a 250 slide if you go WFO and the tires werent in the sun.


And you probably didnt slide as far as you think. I know the feeling makes you think youre way out there but il bet it wasnt noticable unless youre paying attention to the rear.

I try not to do it, but the best is when the rear wheel is spinning a little bit faster than the front and when it grabs, you get a small (6 inch or so) wheelie. I've never done it on purpose, but had it happen a few times both on the streets and on the track.
