one simpler way to get a 360 / donut simultaneously at low speeds without warning is just fill the air normal PSI in front tyres and the rear double the PSI. Thats what the stupid guy at a petrol bunk here in UAE did to my RWD altima. He filled in 58PSI on rear and i was unaware of it just noticing thud thud coming more of left side and then on a light turn there was water spilt on the road and whoa out of the blue in 2nd and the car just did a 360 and a complete donut to my astonishment. I felt something was wrong with the suspension so went to the mechanic and asked him to check only to realise that it was overfull with air. The mech said u r lucky or the tyre would have blasted at speeds in excess of 80kmph. lucky day. btw i can do wheel spins but never done donuts and 360's this one was a surprise. also lucky no damages no accidents in the middle of the road.
