    Haven't found a location suitable to try it yet. Where do you recommend?

    Ideally I'd like a nice smooth concrete surface so I don't chew up the tires too badly. Need to do a skid pan day really.

    It works....but don't try it on the open road....track only.
    PS It is easier to induce with Super Sports compared to Cup 2's...

    are you trying to do it from a stand still out of an intersection? cause no matter how hard I try she grips aswell.

    waiting until I track it to try it properly with some speed and a clutch kick

    That's what I have to learn ahaha. Totally different to what I know.

    That's why I'm heading to a track to try

    Find a dirt road or go out when it's raining. I'd say have some fun in the snow, but I don't think that's a common thing around Sydney.
