Your front wheels couldn't get traction because you are turning the wheel too far.
Turn the wheel less and puch it.
Contrary to popular belief, the way to correct both understeer or oversteer is countersteering.

There is a VERY fine line between IN and OUT of control...So chances are once you go over your limit, you wont be able to do anything...So be carefull and keep practicing (where its safe!)...

P.S. if you never puch it past the limit, you would never know what the limit is!!!

Dorifto!!!!111oneeleven

To drift with minimum front grip, steer away from the turn, then turn into the turn slowly, as if you were going to apex it. Then just punch it and you have guaranteed dorito. The rest is up to you. I'm the neighbourhood terrorist, and the industrial parks don't like me either. I left them some donuts

Crashing is part of learning though! I've bounced off a few snowbanks back in the day

Hell a couple years ago i was being super cocky with my friend and Making the Rear end do the "wiggle" back and forth using my e-brake... Totally lost control and smashed into a No Parking sign + got stuck in the snowbank. Had to shovel out. No damage though (gotta love Civic Rubber bumpers) but my friend wasn't too impressed!

Have fun with it and don't be affraid to sustain light body damage to your car.

It happens to the best of us
