What's that you say? Big powerful rear drive sports car get it's rear out from behind you? Simply countersteer and feather the throttle until you have the slide under control. Then try to clip the apex as sideways as possible, as fast as possible, until the judges scream in delight. Oh wait, that was when I was playing Gran Turismo 3 last night. For those who don't have the dual shock analog controller prowess that I possess, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports that stability control systems that automatically applies brakes to individual wheels when they sense a vehicle is about to lose control have reduced fatal single car accidents by about 56 percent. While they don't necessarily prevent you from plowing into the car in front of you because you're putting on makeup, stability control systems work by keeping drivers from losing control on curves or slippery surfaces.
