      Pure, dumb luck!

      The "amazing" driver was the other guy - he managed to keep his going in a straight line!

      Did everyone at the track, including the maintenance guy on the lawnmower, come to the driver's aid?

      Might of had an idea of what he was doing. He didnt hit the brakes until the end of the 360, least he knows you have a better chance of finessing the skinny pedal with a awd car. Still some luck in there...either way

      We drove down from Ohio with a couple guys trailering a MKIV Supra and a Corvette ... we were constantly on the lookout for the Hennessy guys trying to scavenge some parts off the cars

      I watch that and think... AMAZING CAR! Driver had something going on, but still, that car is almost too good.


      On a side note, not trying to derail thread, but any GT-R vids that were not so lucky?
      ZZ Top is cool.

      I have been really wanting to pick up a Viper for the weekends and going into town but the shop is just over an hour away. A little too close for comfort.

      There goes the "GTR drives itself" theory. This was in a straight line the car couldn't drive itself.

      I think when the tail came out he became a passenger and got very lucky.

      Edit, watched the video a few times. He does correct one way, then the other. If it was all skill he would have saved it from the spin all together.

      1/2 luck 1/2 skill.
