amazing driver or just lucky?
Classicmotoringllc.com - my new brokerage and consulting business based out of a lavishly converted first floor bedroom in Allentown, PA. I am always looking for quality enthusiast cars to consign, research projects or consultation opportunities. Keep an eye on my page as you can see my blabberings about cars and other such junk in the blog section!
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
01 GLS 1.8t 42 Draft 3"DP, RC Coils, EuroSport FMIC, blah, blah....who mods a jetta anyway.
99' Cherokee Lifted and such.
93' Notch Built 302 Carbed.
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.

I'm still trying to figure out how he lost it in the first place..
Current VAG collection- 08 TT coupe 3.2 MT | 06 Phaeton 4-seater 6.0 W12 | 04 VW R32 | 03 GTI VR6 - all of them 24v VR6 based!
Current other- 00 M Roadster | 12 Kia Soul 1.6 stick |01 ZRX1200R | 03 KLX400R
Past- too much too list. I need bigger garages & driveway.
The same rule applies for cars that aren't low/fast/stanced/new/old enough.
Lately I have been testing "tip-in events". Just the tip-in. Just to see how it feels. Response time is typically on the order of 2-3 seconds. Sometimes the injection timing is a little off...
If it was just a picture of the girl (and not is some "look at this hot babe" angle/composition)- I am sure dude would have no issue.
But when being posed like a hot bikini model for an "artistic" car shot, you become fair game for some criticism.

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
Warranty is really only voided if the data shows you broke the car on a launch. The transmissions aren't fragile, the 09s had issues with first gear because the launches were so agressive with VDC off that they wheel hopped badly which will blow any gearbox. The transmissions are finicky though, and when stupid things like pressure sensors, or clutch seals break, instead of replacing the 50 dollar part, a whole new transmission gets installed
