Driving down this nice narrow road in the wet about 2 days ago (I'm still paranoid about the wet, esp. with LSD, so I do drive carefully), I was comming up to a tight corner at the bottom of a hill, and the guy infront of me hit the brakes a bit, and ended up simply sliding right along, off the side of the road and onto the gravel there, where he came to a stop. I kinda figured that my car with it's average (g-grid.. they suck) tyres would do the same.. touch the brake, and it's just sliding along... I managed to steer down this dirt-road which is just on the outside of the corner of the road there, and come to a stop, then the other guy got his car around and continued, then I did..
The weirdest part was, it was all very smooth, and I didn't panic at all.. I simply lost control a bit, and put it in the safest place I could... It was almost fun :)
Anyway, if you live in the Mt. Dande area, and you use perins-creek road, the corner just before you turn onto the monbulk-belgrave road (or burwood hwy, not sure what it is), gets huge amounts of oil build-up, and when it rains, it's slippy-slide time :)
TQE, SWB, ATPS, Worst of the E-series.. and I wouldn't have it any other way
I went there on new years eve near the safeway on the road u were talking about. But ****ing thing was closed. Another hill that is a bitch the ferntree gully road wheelers hill part of it, that is shocking the amount of people that speed down that road. Too many people.
