    Seems you have good traction on the front, which is what you want. Also means your flicking/sliding/bouncing the rear end around corners? Which I have heard is also want you want in a FWD. This ofcoarse can result in the rear overtaking the front, and is not idea for road use.....

    Too late on the throttle! You should have your foot on the floor well before the tail starts getting away from you there! It looks like you're still braking at that point. She certainly snaps away from you quick!

    didn't touch the brakes and was flat on the throttle. i lifted slightly before turning in then straight on the throttle again. my throttle body takes a while to react so i've gotta be at full throttle on the pedal before the tb will actually open all the way up. I would of continued the session but i had the check engine light on. the code was related to throttle body being fully open when the car stalled.
    I'm fairly positive the issue is rear brake related. there is loads of brake dust on the rear wheels and not as much on the front. I usually get through a full track day up here without much dust on the rears and the fronts covered.
    I had the handbrake on car up higher than i've ever had before when it was on the trailer for the drive down so i just wonder if that had something to do with it.

    also need to remember my car doesn't have much power. so with how fast that went the front wheels just couldn't get anything down to the ground to save it Click here to enlarge

    Rear brakes slightly locked would cause the extra dust and the oversteer you were getting so good chance
