Lift off oversteer

I was out for a spirited drive the other day and entered a roundabout a bit to fast and came off the power which caused the back end to step out. Held it for a few seconds before the VSA kicked in. Actually quite enjoyed it and have done a few move lift offs since. I find it very controllable and the VSA doesnt cut it to early. I never realised how easily the type r will over steer.

even with VSA on you could still ditch it though.

Great fun still

I've done this quite a few times now too mate - I used to get the Focus ST to do it a lot, but the CTR takes a bit more work to do it....good fun though...
