Question Anyone performed J or Y turn?

Have anyone of you ever performed J or Y turn in your car? (as seen on TV)
I wonder if our Indian cars can do it at all?

Lol... jaggu, i think this guy is talking of turns that you can do _intentionally_ and not accidentally!

Dont know abt the Y turn...
but J turn yes...
The car follows the pattern of the letter 'J'
Go in full reverse, flick the wheel and tap the brake (dont use the handbrake) as you flick...momentum and timing of the flick along with the brakes are the key to a successful J turn.

Once the you get the right speed, the flick will make the front end of the car come around, while the car comes around, centre the steering, slot into 1st and floor it. Slotting the car into 1st can while going backwards can result in damage to the gearbox. So its not recommended unless you have a spare box lying in the garage.

And being on a slippery surface helps...not to mention bald tyres.

Yeah this one worked...if guinness says its a J turn then i stand corrected...i always thought this was a reverse 180 flick...whereas a J turn was similar but done only till 90 degrees.

maybe a 90 also has a technical name and can be used to get out of a dangerous situation in an intersection. hit a 90 in reverse and get out of an intersection you have just passed.

Y turn = your car reverses very quickly backward (using left hand path of Y) and then within seconds moves forward (using right hand path of Y)

These are often performed in stunt driving.
