Jeepers, that website really shook me awake.
Maybe I shouldn't save up for that DEV5 kit.
I lost control of my car before, luckely I got away with it without
a scratch on me (and my younger brother).
I took him out one night and told him how perfectly sideways I
could take this corner. When I got up there I floored into this
corner went down the street fully accelerating, into another bend
and that's when I started snakeying and lotst control.
I slided sideways against the kerb, my front wheel was totally
collapsed bottom inwards. I was lucky it was a high kerb, and not
one of those kerbs that are on a diagonal, otherwise I would've
crashed into a stobeypole that was right in front of me.
I hate to picture the consequences of that happening.
Since then I've been taking things a lot easier.
The car I was driving was a ED Falcon (the one I still drive now)
and is really easy to lose control over on high speeds. It handles
like a boat.
All I can say is, try and think of the consequences before you pull
a silly stunt in your car . Accidents can happen to anybody,
anywhere and at any time. Don't consider yourself as an exception.
