    I posted a youtube link now that should work. It's a U turn yes, but no traction on the rear wheels so I wouldn't say it's just making a turn

    You're right. It's really just a combat u turn cause I realized I left my phone at your mom's house unlocked. So I needed a speedy turn around before she found it.

    I'm confused. Isn't that a vid of a half donut, or am I missing something.

    It's not a powerslide, stop calling it one!!!

    You did half a donut from a standing start on a junction . . . . . seriously, what reaction were you expecting!?!?!?

    Upon watching the video i really hoped it was a wee joke but then i made the mistake of seeing if there were any other uploads and im alot more intrigued as to what exactly this is all about. . . . . .

    Proof that when the clutch drops, the bullshit in fact doesn't stop.

    You did ask for advice though. My advice is stop panicking about the steering wheel so much. Arms were flailing about quite a bit.


    This is a Formula Drift run... note hand movements

    I love the internet! lol Sure, you can call it a half doughnut. A half doughnut would be 180 degrees too so my bad calling it a power slide. Those are easier imo. I guess I need to impress some of you that feel your life was wasted lol. I'll be at the track this weekend.
    Keep the views coming on my nutella review! hahahha!

    Also, at CBRParr. After watching it back, I did realize my hands cranking the wheel very fast. I'm not used to starting from a standstill. Still getting used to the r32 from my 180sx. Not too much difference tho!

    I wouldnt say empty backroads are good, why not practicing on the track and asking someone to sit in with you?
    great advice can be given ande more progress can be made !
