Looped it a Charlotte Motor Speedway

just a minor spin.. nothing too exciting.

great time running at this track though, by the end of the day I was hitting 150-160mph on the Oval section of the course.

How fast were you going when said spin occurred?

ya its kind of big on my car, worse on some better on others. its a hand built car, so its a lot of adjustment for me to get it back right.

Next time stand on the gas it will push you away from the wall (if you are doing oval), keeps the engine from stalling, and leaves kick ass huge darkies.
