Well technically the simplest way would be from a stand still by turning the wheel in one direction, put in first gear, start going in a tight turn, and when you are going close to the limit, lift the throttle...at this point you should start to feel the rear end come loose..., as the rear starts to get loose you would re-apply the throttle, and if there is enough power....or low enough traction...the car should start to "doughnut".

This is theory! Reality will have it's own ideas depending on the pavement, the tires, tire pressure, suspension setup, engine power, throttle response, LSD's (on which axle, and how much they lock), etc....and driver of course.

Don't even bother to try on dry pavement, you would need 250+ HP minimum! It is even difficult on "grippy" wet pavement.
You may also notice that the RS has a tendancy to break loose easier in a left turn. The best place to practice is in snow, or dirt if snow is not an option.

I personally managed to pull one off so far for two complete left turns on wet pavement....and in snow of course. The car really just wants to go straight and understeer as you re-apply power, so it is quite tricky to get the rear out under power. You can also try to dab the breaks lightly if the throttle lift does not give you enough weight transfer to the front...and that is breaking with your left foot.

Yeah, that's why I think my car's magical or something. I can slide it and make donuts in dry pavement whenever I want to. Mind you my car just has I/E. No suspension mods, and still on the RE92's. I guess it's just the ****ty tires, so when i get nice grippy ones I'll just loose that ability. Oh well

BTW, I use the e-brake to get the ass end out and thenlet off it and floor the gas basically. This was done on RE92's too.

Thumbs up

Aaah 8complex, SWEET!!

Why did you not tell us about these mpg's earlier?!
...you probably did, but I missed it...
Once in a while you should keep reminding all the new folks as well!

BTW, did you try doing it turning right, or did you also find the car not as eager to break it's rear loose compared to turning left?

I also know why you only had your parking lights on... ...a "light-house" in the middle of a parking lot would draw plenty of unwanted attention...


Memnoch,
forgive me for being skeptical, but I would pay to see you pull off ON DRY what 8complex did on wet pavement with only I/E mod!
...and 1/4" layer of dust does not count either...
Mind you I never tried any of this with the stock RE92's, only the Toyo Proxies!

Note: it is MUCH harder to get the back end to come around without the rear LSD, so if you've got a 98-99, you'll need to try REAL hard before getting a perfect scoobnut.

No prob ASNG. I can't pull them like 8 does in the second clip, more like the third, where I do one donut and the car then understeers, so I follow then yank again and do another one and so on
It's been harder for me to do it on wet pavement, actually, I haven't been able to do it yet on wet pavement. Loose dirt is fun too

Loose dirt and gravel are nice, but you don't get the speed of the spin. I'll see if I can go out with a buddy of mine and his camcorder and get some on film during the day. Oh and I'm going to attempt to get it going in the dry too.
