Slow hands and a tight LSD.
Who else has done this? Talk to me, because I've got experience in this, and not the good kind. Hasn't happened while I was driving, knock on wood, but been passenger in two accidents exactly like this. Hmm, wait, ok, one time I did a little one of these and bumped up over a curb doing and wrecked one rim, Lol. Guess I'm trying to forget that one. Okay 3 times I've experienced this!!
I'll agree, the slow hands part, in one higher speed straight line spin-out in about a 550 hp Corvette C6, early on as the back end kicked out the first time my brain thought 'he's a fraction of a second late (slow)...', and then he over-corrected and the car whipped the opposite way, then there was no stopping the 40-50 mph slide-out, up a curb into a light pole on MY side of the car, and let me tell you, I remember those seconds in s-l-o-w m-o-t-i-o-n as I saw the car sliding towards the pole, I'm calculating, 'looks like that pole is gonna cut this car, and my legs, in half
Lucky for me, the break-away bolts holding the pole to the concrete did their job and the pole broke off and went right over the top of the 'vette. No humans were harmed other than glass shards in my hair and down my shirt, and pants.
Anyhow, when you say 'tight LSD', do you mean it's tight and NOT keeping the weighted outside tire driving (during the slide)? Or do you mean it's tight and NOT allowing the power to transfer to the inside unweighted, or less weighted tire?
Asking because I tried studying up on this, the science behind this, the 'straight-line double or triple fishtail wipeout' and ways to prevent it AGAIN, I like to learn from mine and other people's mistakes, and virtually found nothing to study.
I've driven spooled cars with slicks or solid-axle race carts, and with no differential, cornering, drifting, sliding was easy-peasy, and totally confidence inspiring. On the street with open or LSD's, not so fun sliding. Would a Detroit locker be better? What gives? Or doesn't give...?
