Nope, never have. You obviously have it down. I see a lot of flubs on You Tube. I never worry about the guys who are willing to pay to play. But I think that it can be a steep learning curve for a lot of other guys.

I see a lot of videos where guys are getting god rubber in second as well, but it isn't always so easy or smooth. And it always comes back to the weak link, whatever that is. I seem to recall that STIs have limited slip front and rear, and regular WRXs do not. That will also have a big effect on how they hook up, and how smooth. Seems like you would get wheel hop when they start to connect with the road.

Again, feel free to correct me.

Now that's daft too. I can just push the pedal down while rolling and spin my 295 Hoosiers. It's under 500 HP. How do you think you drift without losing traction? I power out of corners and the rear comes around a bit if I'm carrying enough speed.
Sure, not everyone can or should do it. I have racing diffs. I don't do hard launches, I get rolling first, and in road racing, spinning tires is not the objective.
