    Default Scary moment today

    Had my first scary moment in my new job today. was going down a slip road onto motorway in the sprinter and hit a patch of diesel with surface water on it at 60mph and almost completely lost control. Was going almost sideways and nearly smacked the barrier.

    Totally Sh4t myself

    Merc Sprinter?

    Wobble wobble!!!

    At speed, you can feel the shell and chassis actually trying to twist itself!!

    Iveco Daily - much better all round van!

    Glad you're unscathed bud!

    Sprinter is a better yoke than the Transit now. ESP standard, big hairy 3.2 litre CDi. I got a land speed record in a Renta-Merc Sprinter going down to Dublin of 110 on the tacho.
