In a spin, both feet in...
yeah, it's el toro marine base in Irvine, Ca... been out of use for awhile so all sorts of car stuff goes on out there... I think they even filmed some segments of Topgear USA out there. Lots of fun with plenty of room to get creative with courses.

i just got some falken azenis rt615's and contrary to that spin they stick great. a little noisy on the road but not anything that i'm concerned with. price was great too, $640 installed.

Did you lift the throttle then yank the steering wheel?

What run group were you in? I was there in a 944. I don't have a video but I got you beat on the spin. I took out an entire corner.... twice. I was not used to boost lag at all and was trying a little to hard for top 10. 4th in BRI wasn't too bad though.

I had a student in a Cayman that did amazingly well but unfortunately failed to get a clean run. Otherwise he would have had a 66 in a bone stock Cayman S.

don't think i lifted but i was so out of whack a twitch of my big toe would've sent me spinning, i was carrying a lot more speed than in other runs and just got all out of whack and was a little too rough on the steering wheel. spins are a lot of fun though.

i was in the green run group, red boxster with a hardtop (972). not sure of my bri. ran a clean 66.7 in practice but for the timed runs could only eek out a 67.8. oh well... it was a fun day.
