I just watched again the R promotion movie that came out in 2003 and especially the Flash Green S60R.<p>I wonder how is Tiff Needell rotating the car 360 degree at the end of the movie on the wet track.<p>Does anyone knows how to do that?

Re: Driving the R (doru)

Pull the emergency brake to disengage AWD, bypass ABS and lock the rear wheels... and then hold on?

Re: (Copeland)

I just saw it done on the German clip that was posted a few years ago (the red S60R) and the track was bone dry. <p>This one is actually using the hand brake to initiate teh turn but is doing more than one 360 rotation and is using more than just the brake to do it.<p>The question is what the sequence that you should follow to get the complete turn nice and controlled like a turn not like a slide.

Re: (doru)

After you initiate the turn, you need to clutch in and turn the steering wheel the opposite direction to allow the fronts to bring the car around the last 180 degrees. I imagine if it's wet enough, all you really need to do is yank the steering wheel hard enough and be going fast enough. I've never personally done it but I saw a 5th Gear episode where they explain it.
