That's great Eddy, I did that today. I was trying to get into an icey alley, and I lost momentum. spun the wheels like a mf until I heard the scream.

Turns out I was spraying a pedestrian...  :(

I showered a pedestrian yesterday as well.  :'(  Very unintentional. I slow right down from 80 to 40 to cross the intersection; just in case some stupid things happen. Aiming the right tire to follow the grove. But unfortunately hit a patch of slush just where the guy was walking next to it. Alice say, you just showered the guy.  :-\ I felt sorry.

Yeah, bad karma. And they'd never believe it was an accident. :'(

I thought the traction control forbids spinning the tires. Or did you use a disabler?

No disabler. Its about having the right equipment, being at the right condition, and a bit of practice on precise skill. :D
