I got used to the lack of control you speak of. I have been driving RWD sports cars since I was 14. I had nice older friends. Then I got my own 95 Mustang GT 5 speed at 18. I actually took this thing out in the blizzard of 01 to see if I could get stuck. Well I didnt, but I was in 3rd gear facing about 40 degrees to the left of the road, speedo reading 50mph, but really going 10 and straight down the road. That was fun, also I did take a motorcycle training course when I was 20. It really was $250 WELL spent. I agree be safe and dont take chances. Thats just one of many dumb things I did when I was younger and that I look back on and say "Why the He11 dont I do this anymore?". Then I realize that I actually want to LIVE. Damn getting older sucks, and Im not that much older. I may be having a quarter life crisis.
