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 :)

I am actually more weary with a single wheeler.. I find the lsd's more predictable... especially if your drifting with 140km/h on the speedo... not that I do that...

thanks

My single spinner got some good LSD action last night, I need to go back and get some pics.
this rain is crazy to drive in, I hate not being able to move from a set of lights when they are green.

Is that just near Jells Park? Or am I thinking of another part of FT. Gully Road?
