its best way to learn car control without the sacrifice of tires.
you are absolutely right and what you said is relatively intuitive. However, counter steering to maintain a slide is much easier to first learn in the rain. The car is much more forgiving. Ive never owned a rwd car b4 so it was how i first practiced. Besides, sliding on a dry surface is retarded and expensivethis would seem to be true but the effect of a miata on rainy ground is much closer to the physics of a 2000lbs vehicle with much more horsepower on donut-narrow tires. it in no way simulates how your car will actually lose and regain traction in a 2000lbs car with 100bhp on dry ground. when your tires regain grip on dry ground from a slide it is very rough and takes a lot of skill to maneuver. if you take all of your experience rain sliding and attempt to apply it to a real life dry road situation you're either going to flip your car or under/oversteer horribly because the vehicle didnt act like you intended.
i love to have rainy fun too! but don't take it for more than its worth. its not like drifting on dry pavement lol. at all.
