The roads down here suck. It's normal to see at least an inch of water and sometimes the curb sides get completely flooded

Why are all GT owners such d-bags? Almost every post I see you guys just putting people down. Are you still in high school or what?

I can break tires loose in the rain easy with my 3.8, even without the rain I can manage to drift a bit on turns and scare the crap out of the passenger when they her the tires squealing lol. You don't have to give it much gas and you need crappy tires. I don't have TC to rely on. Of course I do it intentionally to have fun (on lonely roads) op was probably giving it a bit too much gas for that kind of action cause I've never spun out that bad and I gas it

All depends on road conditions and tires. My tires do good but if I mash it it'll break loose.

I managed to completely lose control once

It was raining super hard, I had stock 215s and I had to turn off advancetrac
I had to foot brake to get the wheels spin ing
Turned the wheel all the way and I let go of the brakes
I spun 3 times :p
Probably the worst thing I've done to my cr.
I felt bad afterwards XD

It's obvious that you can't multi-task. Next time plug the phone in first, then you can drive and breathe at the same time.

So me accidentally bumping the TC button is an inability to multitask?

I could break the tires loose in my truck, that was a slow *** truck that no matter how hard i tried i could not get it to 100mph. And it had pretty good all season tires. Its not that hard to spin a car out in the rain.

Why don't y'all stop giving OP a hard time, don't come on here and criticize him like you have never done anything of that sort before. I'm one of the younger people on here, do i really have to be the adult in this case?

Took a turn a bit too fast after a recent downpour on a fairly new paved road. Long story short, fishtailed it a good ways, and kept it out of oncoming traffic. Just one of those things that happens to everyone. Those who've never done it, are obviously gods gift to the earth, and we should praise them all. Amen.

I believe it's called torque, and it takes torque to spin the tires. Trucks have a crapload more torque than regular cars soooooooooo....

I actually did hit the gas trying to make it slide a little bit. But ya know, the first time for everything... I faced the cars behind me.

Several of us have probably done the same thing or worse. But with WISDOM one doesn't post his own error's. One keeps Quiet.....Hush.........

+1. Give the OP a break, I spun my camaro in the rain back in 1998 trying to keep up with a vette around a fish hook. Since then I've graduated from 2 driving schools in the top of my group, and can confidently say I'm a pretty decent driver now. But with that said, I had to get a reality check in the form of almost crashing to make me realize I had a long way to go before I could call myself a good driver. OP will only learn from his mistakes as I did.

That is what counts. It's alright to make mistakes as long as you learn from them
