I've re-typed a response three times now and backed over it. I don't want to be condescending, but I gotta say, this is one trick you should leave to your friend. It can only cost you a boatload of money to correct when you screw up your brakes, tires and possibly your suspension.

This guys other posts are just as nuts...troll?

If not...sell the Porsche and purchase a late model Camaro to do what you want to do.

Dude, just roll the corner wide and the last second turn in and mash the gas, then let off a slight bit and hold it, the car will drift around the corner nicely in full control (if you can handle it) without using the e brake at all. It's a RWD car, common you can DO IT!!

alright, first of all im not a troll..my style of driving is not the same as all of yours i guess. thanks 986jim for kinda helping, as for the rest of you, the reason i am asking these "crazy" questions is so that i can learn about my car and get real world answers. im not a car expert by any means, thats why im asking you guys, the ones that should know..i guese some of you people are not the type of people to help a less knowledgable driver, and more the type to cut them down.
