    One for sri kev: finally kicked the back end out :)

    I recall a conversation with Kev, possibly at last years Kielder run, that I'd never had the back end kick out on my Astra to a response of 'You're not driving it hard enough then!'

    Well, by pure accident this morning, it did kick out with a little front wheel drift too! Going round the A69/Brampton roundabout which is very tight and the BMW behind (other makes and models of car exist) was a touch close so I put a little more weight on the go pedal and whee, bye bye grip

    Seemed to slide rather controllably though which was lucky, so there you go Kev, I am finally driving it hard enough!

    Ive done this twice because i had naff Admiral branded rear tyres.
    Once was on a rounabout where the back end kicked out, i corrected it but braked as well so i ended up facing the correct way but stationary, less embarresing than facing the wrong way on a busy roundabout though.
    Second time was the same night on a different roundabout, but i fully spun out, luckily it was like 1am so no one was around.
    Needless to say i swiftly got new rear Firestone branded tyres, never had that problem since.
