This is why you practice before going out on roads like that. Practicing in a parking lot is the way to go and developing that feeling which will warn you when you reached the limit on certain things. Now its costing him.
Definitely. Make sure your comfortable first. Get to know the car in and out, and get to know what you can and can't do with it. People get cocky or are just plain stupid and think they can hop in and do whatever they feel like.
Too bad the video has been removed, I would have liked to see it. Ford has said that drift button makes drifting easier, it's going to do everything for someone if they're just a bad driver. If someone blames Ford for their busted up RS, they'll probably fail.
