You're right. TWO FEET IN BABY!!! ;-)..anyways, that is what Vahram did that morning in the 1st session RIGHT in front of me at turn 5, and I had the camera pointint RIGHT at him, but it wasn't turned on! That would have just made my was a perfect spin in slow motion, it looked like. He finished pointing right towards me, as I saw the whole thing happen. It was hilarious, but yes, now V's spin was very predictable and didn't panic anyone. Just made laugh (Sorry V, someday we'll all laugh when I eat it at WSIR)..anyways, later on an NSX did same thing as Audi, but shot across the track! Serious over steer, and it looked scary. But he was ok too. WSIR, fun times, ;) CYA>PM3

: He was lost from the start of the clip. Looks like he was drifting, paniced, tapped the brakes and the weight went forward....He whipped around like that cause he tried to correct the spin insted of just slamming on the brakes. Which is what you should do once you know you have lost it totaly. Makes your skid a lot more predictable for anyone behind you to avoid.
