Almost...
« on: October 08, 2020, 12:23:01 am »
Not used to the throttle response of my C10 yet. Geared down to pass on wet pavement and fishtailed it 50mph. Had to pull back to check my pants.

Either REALLY slippery road or really poor rain tyres.
I've given mine full throttle in 2nd at 50Mph in the wet and no slip at all.
Or did you go down one gear too many?  :rotflmao:

Glad you managed to avoid the wipe-out and follow-through :thumbs:

They're Shinko 777's. Not badly worn but starting to square off.
Maybe the tire spin started on line paint. It was certainly unexpected.
