It's not that you can't correct it with throttle, it's that you can't correct it with throttle like on a RWD or AWD vehicle. The actual process of correcting oversteer is different. If you try to correct like a RWD you will likely end up inducing snap oversteer in the opposite direction of the original skid.

I know if I try to further delve into the dynamics here I'll either sound like a massive idiot, make zero sense, or more likely, a combination of the two. But I know what you're saying and agree with it to enough of a point. laugh2.gif

An interesting diversion from his normal stuff. Loved the Bebop line at the end.

That will be answered in my AMA thread - hopefully tomorrow, where I can snap a picture of the scene of the crime on my lunch break.

So it's been over a month. You ever gonna tell IDW what happened to your coupe?

Lol. Well, the owner did actually go for the Tofu Shop look, so I cannot say anything.

This car is confused. It has the Project D hood but the original 4 valve engine.

It's not confused, the owner is just one of many who don't have the dosh or reason to swap in a mystical magic engine. Kinda like people who paint their 240Z midnight blue but don't swap in a carbeurated turbo.

Just finished watching both parts. Part 2 had me giggling a little because I've been there. The first RWD vehicle I ever drove was Sideways's Corolla and yeah... that was me. Giggling like a schoolgirl as the car went sideways around corners with its exhaust manifold roaring like an angry beast that wanted desperately to be more powerful than it actually was.

God that was fun. It's still a shitty econobox with stupidly inflated asking price, but it's fun.

Saw one on slicks at a track day once.

Then I saw it again.

And again.

And a couple more times.

All in the same session.

It kept coming up in front of me.

Then disappearing in my rear view

Doesn't have to be the Toyota Atlantic engine, even a regular 5 valve engine like in sideways' would be deemed acceptable.

Engine swaps are a nuisance in general.

From what I understand, you just have to change the head and some wiring, right?

I could be forgetting something, though.

Find somebody with an old MR2 and try not to grin in the corners. The back end is cartoonishly fun to flick around corners with zero effort and total control. God damn I loved that car. The engine is dreadfully underpowered but it will use every bit of that 116 to convince you that it's bigger and badder than it really is.

Best part is that the price did not inflate like the AE86, so you can get them dirt cheap.

And, if I remembered correctly, they used the same engine as the AE86. Didn't Regular reviewed an AW11 before?

EDIT: Here it is, not really interesting though.

Have to admit, feeling alittle deprived having never driven a lightweight RWD car yet after reading through this thread.
