Another way is to use the regular brake with your left foot while applying enough gas with your right foot. The FWD keeps the front wheels turning but the rear wheels brake which leads to oversteer. Rallye drivers use that on gravel, you can tell by looking at their brake lights in a tight corner. Do not try this at home. It's hard on the power train and front brakes even on snow or gravel, and probably much too hard on asphalt. In the context of this thread, I don't think this is doable with antilock brakes, but maybe someone will try and tell us ;) -- Johannes Hyvärinen johannes.hyvarinennopsamfi
