We've all been there. Look up one video and, five hours later, it's bed time. I thought this one was just cool. I'm not even sure how I got there!

I think she needs a cigarette! She did good with only dropping a HOLY SH*& one time. I was waiting for a MOTHER F'er!

Having owned a 74 Superbeetle, I cannot imagine what the understeer on this must be like, especially with those skinny ass tires up front.

Understeer? With that kind of horsepower, just a little throttle and you have oversteer LOL

Since Shamora also uses my YouTube account, there are endless garden videos that come up, and along with MCU trailers.

Not to mention Holderness Family vids.

Yes, understeer due to the light front end, but you are correct in that the more difficult problem to deal with is the subsequent oversteer when you correct the understeer with trailing throttle over steer, or transition from understeer to power oversteer coming out of a corner.
I owned a VW square-back sedan (AKA station-wagon) as my first car, a fun car in it's own way, but not over-powered by any stretch of the imagination, not that kind of fun. LOL. For a while, my dad bought a new VW beatle every year.

I'm just very careful to stay away from the edge of the hole. I treat it like a volcano.

Okay I lied. Got sucked in the other day to one where someone was playing the same passage on three different cellos: An everyday model, a high end instrument, and an 18th century treasure (maybe a Stradivarius).
