    Hey guys...

    When I'm trying to snake my 1.6 mx5 (60psi) it's not always strictly on a track... of course that means it's on a private road...

    I've never went full on but what's peoples thoughts on snaking these. Usually I'll try to keep it going by throwing left to right foot flat and using the weight to get it sideways each way but usually I get maybe 3 or 4 motions each side. Can't really seem to get more than that as it straightens out.

    Am I maybe not going balls deep enough and making her gag or do I need to start clutch kicking it half way between the transitions from left to right to give it a bit extra encouragement?

    I've had more powerful cars and can snake plenty but of course this is just an everyday 5

    Throttle lift, throttle lift as it swings, otherwise if you just go full throttle it will just pick up more speed and then straighten. ;)
