You really get to know your car, like practicing emergency lane changes, skids and slide recovery, that sort of thing. Basically Autocross and the wisdom of the pros at those events really helped me understand what I was doing right/wrong.

Haha the yard is a good place to practice that. The hardest vehicle for me to ebrake turn was my nissan pickup. You had to pull the ebrake out of the dash just to the left of the shifter. It was a rachet style that required a 90 deegree rotation to release. It was really tricky to ebrake and get the shift just right(downshift prevented without a proper revmatch when rolling). Theres nothing quite liking driving into the bottoms meeting some high water on the road and ebrake turning right in the edge of it. It always scares your passengers. I lived out in the country by the TN river.

After reading this thread, the theme song from "The Dukes of Hazzard" is suddenly running through my head. Wierd!
