Some of you have already left the track in track day?

It seems kind of rare it happens

That's some hefty prejudice, glad everyone is ok!










Manuals are still better than automatics though. Just saying.

hey look at that! An automatic sti... Kind of unfortunate...

You counter-steered WAY to much and you lifted when it started to slide... Should have either done nothing and kept in it or a slight flick of the wheel. The car went exactly where you told it to go.

Outcome resulted in very little damage so it's a good learning experience. Live and learn...

It happens.

Looks like you cranked the wheel way too far to the left mid skid instead of just riding it out. When it caught from turning too far left, it ripped the wheel right out of your hands.

Maybe it would be worthwhile to visit the local skidpad/wet pad.

Really lacked experience, but've seen the video a 300 x, I think if it happens the next time I will do better

hope

Ride it out next time and feather the throttle to control your skid. My 02 bugeye looses it in the rear occasionally. You just gotta control it and not panic. Keep off the brakes when you are skidding.

QFT. Subtle inputs = subtle outcomes and vise-versa.

If you had race gloves on this would not have happened.

If OP lifted weights he would have enough strength to man handle the wheel too, right?

You were very close to hitting that wall. Wow.

Reason why it happened? Too much speed, too high of a rear tire pressure possibly, too much reaction with the wheel (although I would have done the same thing).

It happens. I've done it in autocross through slaloms with too much speed. Rear end just gets light and there you go. Although at autocross, speeds are 50-60 MPH max, with cones.

Countersteer + AWD: Use with EXTREME caution. It is one habit a person really needs to limit when running this platform as this type of drivetrain will bite you exactly like this. Countersteer will drive you right off the road.

Everyone learns somewhere. Spend more time sliding the car around. The best, cheap place would be local rally-x events. It's low speed, loose dirt/gravel surfaces, and cheap as...well...dirt. You can have a lot of fun tossing your car around and getting used to the thing sliding. Then at higher speeds you will have a better understanding of what to feel for and how you should adjust your inputs.

You got lucky! I learned the hard way and it cost much more to fix.
