Well I'm a very impatient person and decided to take her for a blast down the back lanes (private roads of course) was all fun until I decided to put my foot down properly without thinking what I was doing!
The road was wet, muddy and maybe even a little icy because it's been getting cold at nights, anyway the surface was like ice!
I pulled out from a lane, put my foot down and it just span all fours like no tomorrow and I should of clicked on that the roads were bad at that point! I changed to second and put the car into a left hand bend and it started to slide, next thing I knew it wanted to just do a rapid 180 degree spin in the middle of the road and there wasn't enough room, I would of put my back end into a wall! So I tried to control the spin to the best of my abilitys, I gave it some opposite lock and dabbed the throttle in a hope to get it straight but then it threw me into a spin the other way and my front end was going to the wall! I some how managed to save it, all I did was got a rear wheel covered in grass and mud from the grass verge on the other side of the road
I wasn't going fast enough to hurt myself because it was literally a couple of hundred yards from where I pulled off so I wasn't exactly carrying a lot of speed but if I had hit that wall it would of made a good mess of my car!!
It's probably a good thing it happened because now its made me realise I need to go steady lol, I think ive just been used to driving a FWD auto Astra with zero horspower for so long I just forgot what I was doing in my R
