    Look how easy he lost the 993!

    Slightest movement on the stering wheel sent him into a spin. I knew people said the back end was lethal but jeez.

    UTube

    Re: Look how easy he lost the 993!

    I think he let off the gas, resulting in some snap oversteer

    Re: Look how easy he lost the 993!

    That didn't look like letting off the gas nor any other sort of normal behavior. The track was straight there. I think he lost air pressure in a tire or hit some oil or something. 993's are very easy to drive - very forgiving - that didn't look normal for a 993 to me...

    the more i watched it, the more i disagree with myself & i think something like that happened

    Re: Look how easy he lost the 993!

    Yes, something definitely went wrong. Either a tyre deflated or he drove over some oil. A car doesn't just go out of control like that.

    If you take a look at the description of the video by the poster it reads "What happens when shift linkage works itself loose, and all of a sudden 1st gear is where 3rd gear is supposed to be?
    BTW:I know is missed my apex by a mile.... "


    Re: Look how easy he lost the 993!

    Off the gas or on the clutch. Did the same in a Caterham the other week. Nice driver apart from that though - very smooth.

    Re: Look how easy he lost the 993!

    i saw it on google video and the comment was that it was a blow out,

    Re: Look how easy he lost the 993!

    things that may happend:
    -blow up
    -error in downshifting
    -oil in the rtack
    -garebox broken

    no 993 in normal conditions do like that..for sure....

    Re: Look how easy he lost the 993!

    yeah not normal, thats not like a soinout.. something went wrong. suspension maybe?? i dont know.

    Re: Look how easy he lost the 993!

    Looking at the track, a dark spot is noticeable at the exact place he spins. Probably oil (RMS failure someone?)

    Re: Look how easy he lost the 993!

    Looks like he hit a patch of oil... you can see it on the track.

    Re: Look how easy he lost the 993!

    LOL, I dont think any car in the world behaves like that. I'm with the majority on this one...something wasnt right mechanically.

    Re: Look how easy he lost the 993!

    agree with loranTW, you can see a black patch on the track right before the spin, but there also was a bump in the cabin that might indicate blow out as well

    Re: Look how easy he lost the 993!

    its very simple. the guy downshifted and released the clutch a just a bit sooner than he had to. Back wheels locked up and car ends spinning. You can do that on purpose if you want to enter a curve sideways and then step on the gas and drift forever...

    Re: Look how easy he lost the 993!

    Guys guys GUYS! camon now .. has anyone even read the description of the video?!?!

    Re: Look how easy he lost the 993!

    it looks like he downshifted too soon and the back wheels locked.you can do this and enter a curve sideways and then step on the gas and drift forever...
