I had a similar experience, luckily it was when I was on Buttonwillow Raceway. First track experience ever, 5th time around the track, sharp 90 degree turn, too much speed, and too much steering input left me in a 180 degree tail spin right off the track into the dirt (thank god there were no walls!). I failed to put both feet in, and so the car stalled when I came to a stop...I was in 2nd gear. But, from that point on, that turn became my best. :-) Gotta learn somehow I guess.

Anyway, I can semi-relate. Good luck, hope the Duck gets its wing fixed soon!
