    confused Has your vec ever nearly killed you????

    dunno if this is the rite place to put this but hay!

    Was just out at a rolling road event at extreme in whitburn there and came flying down the bathgate hills on the way home! was doin a good 80 to 90 round a long sweeping right hander then the tc light came on killed the power and the back end started to go luckily there was a banking and my back wheel went on it to my surprise i thought i was dead!
    but managed to regain control by dropping a gear and gettin back on the power! my car aint got the blue plug for the tc switch tho!

    has anyone elses vec done this and nearly had them in an early grave?

    Would have though that the basic Cornering Braking Control would have tucked your back wheel back in by braking one of the others??

    Still, you can't pee around with the laws of physics. Slow down Dude!!!
