FOK - I've had a few squirmy tail - clenched bum moments on the road in the wet myself.

Is racelogic the obvious cure for these "moments"?

I don't think so.....It's just TCS isn't it?

ESP type driver aids are the only failsafe cure for tail out action!

I am just going to buy some sticky treaded road tyres and a large box of driving talent!

I only wrote a will last week, so perhaps impeccable timing for a reality check?

Back to fully treaded tyres for the street I think.
320+ Pony's under your right foot - we all need to remember that we are not racing drivers... and that the MCoupe is not an R8.....

Meh, the R8 no doubt drives itself with the amount of driver aids it has for the permatan premiership playing clientele that buy it. Give me an S50 in Pilot Sports anyday.

I wouldn't call it failsafe at all! It helps to some degree, but if it was trully one of those moments - when something ortogonal happens to what you expect - then probably wouldn't get unnoticed with ESP as well...

Get some proper driving experience. Use it less for commuting, more for dedicated driving. Works for me
