Sarcasm? No?


Fine.

In a WRX, just abruptly lift off the gas and you'll snap from understeer to oversteer so your ass end hits a tree first ^^
Yes, it's happened to me, just not the tree part.

There have been 7 or 8 redundant/repost threads in the last couple of days, started by complete noobs who couldn't be bothered to search. So I figured that if I was going to respond negatively to badly behaving noobs, I should do something nice for noobs that do things right (ie. not starting a whole new thread about it).
