Oh wow, if you're driving that and perpindicular to the direction of the road through that..... well, I don't believe you're doing it correctly.

But probably Michelins, not Pirelli (and probably wider that you'd think, 15/65-15 for Michelins while Dmacks would be 205/65-R15 )

His forward motion, I would think, should be viewed through his side windows.

Some of the French Andros Trophy ice racers have wiper arms on the driver's side windows. Nothing wrong with that at all!

OH SNAP!!! Gorram geometry and a fried brain!!

He should be perpindicular to the direction of the road, and should be looking out his side windows while in forward motion. Long story short, He should be hangin out the ass end of that car all the way through that S turn complex.

I love how you can see where they're on/off the gas throughout these turns....on the gas drifting through the turn, HARD on the gas out of the turn, then off the gas for a split second (no tracks in the road) to get the car rotated in the other direction, then back on the gas just before the turn....wash, rinse, repeat.
