ESP / TRACTION CONTROL = DANGEROUS
Previous | 1 | Next


Arrived at icey open car park tonight.

Cue some donuts and lazy drifts before parking. Natchurally. 8)

Came back out - all fluids still warm... so it would be rude to exit without a few more. However - I found some unexpected grip which fired me rather effectively straight towards a kerb. :o Just stopped in time before realising i'd forgot to switch the above systems off. :roll:

Remember kids - safety systems = dangerous! :roll:

I did something similar:

R33 GTR. Brand new NISMO TE37s. Snowy car park. Group of mates stood watching. I blipped the throttle to get the back out, the ATTESSA system shuffled the power forward to the front wheels and powered me the way the front wheels were pointing. I avoided a kerb by less than an inch.

I think a failed drift in your work car park in front of colleagues is obligatory for a petrol head :lol:
I managed a similar one to you Rev, but in the 328i purely due to the rear finding grip on an unevenly icy surface and the front sliding like a good'un!

I can only please one person a day. Today is not your day and tomorrow don't look good either.

Note than none of us actually crashed our cars, but instead used our skillz to rescue the situ. 8)

As I was sliding towards the kerb (which was actually a corner), rh side front wheel first I was actually trying to decide whether to just pay for a new wheel or whether to claim on the insurance.
