How do your correct if you go in to a corner too fast?

I am used to driving FWD cars and motorbikes so I am slowly learning how to drive a RWD car. I know on a FWD car you can just let off the gas and the car will most likely under steer and on my bike I just lay it down some more and slam on the throttle.

I have read that if you let off in a corner the M3's are prone to snap over steer. I had this happen to me once and it scared the sh*t out of me.

Any tips from the pros would be appreciated.


hey whatever you do if u go into a corner to fast do not let off the gas in these cars they will snap out and spin trust me, the car will usually stick, just pick what u want to do and putt he throttle where u want it and let it ride out, dont panic and let off because then ur screwed, go somewhere and practice sometimes, in boith rain and shine, my opinion
