Guys who taught me skid control teach US swat teams about this.

J turn is the 90degree reverse spin. Reverse the car to about 50mph and yank the wheel hard and use the engine weight momentum to shift the car

Y turn the the 180 degree continuation, as for J but slam selector into drive and yank wheel to the oppostie direction to get away. This can only be done smoothly in an automatic car.

Auto cars are best for these situ's as they never stall and your hands can concentrate on steering

Yeah thats what i was talking about.
But 50mph? I doubt our cars can do that much in reverse...
Are you sure its not mph but kph?
I think the max i've done on the accent in reverse is 35-40kph.

K, eyes straight ahead. Speed 120kmph ( 120+ would be great). Scorpio would be nice, another other car would be ok too ( no ABS please )

See those puppy? ( Puppies too ok) . Hard brake ( okok, hand brake too if you like). Now you missed those puppies BUT you didnt miss the tree ( nice strong lamp post too is fine).

YOur hit it, car splits into two ( like in rajanikath movies), one half goes to left side with your gf still in it and to the other side you!

Viola, Y
