"Well...that was fun."
Telemetry says it all...if you pull 1.3 lateral G in a stock NA Miata on street tires, going greater than 60 miles per hour...you're going to have an interesting time. Epic oversteer at the apex there, tried to correct but I did it too fast and didn't really hold it in a drift (didn't fully lift or brake or anything though.) Got it back in line and then the weight snapped back around. Car went from straight to 180º in under 3 seconds. Instantly went from no yaw to 70º per second...went from that 1.3 lateral G where it lost grip to -1 G in under 3 seconds. Fun stuff. Glad nothing and nobody was hurt. Totally my mistake.
Tire de-beaded spectacularly but we limped back to the paddock, re-filled it with air and it popped back on. Cleared everything with the stewards and were back out there the next session.
Loading more stuff…
Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
