Wink Glad to be alive...

I have had my Legend for 3+years this happend two months after I bought her.
After a night out I jumped on the highway to head home, it started to sprinkle. while going up the onramp I decided to gas it and have a little fun. I had just bought this car and I wanted to see what it could do.
What happen next happend in three seconds- the car flipped completely around and continued off the road backwards and sideways. I thought for sure I was going to flip so my instinct was not to brake but keep the enursha. I hit the gas and sent a shower of dirt and grass well over the top of my car spun my ass around and ended up doing a complete "donut" off the road and back onto the onramp and onto the highway like nothing happend. I was so scared all I could do was laugh, strange I know.
The next day It looked like I had planted sod all over my car it was covered in grass (wish i took a pic) Took her to the doctors and I had broke a front axle. My tires had to be removed. I had hit the curb sideways. my mechanic found a pound of dirt, rocks and grass in the two drivers side tires and said they actually came off the rims partially and went back on during the slide. He said I was lucky they werent both ripped off. My car saved my life and got me home safe with a broken axle to boot (no pun intended).
One Love. Legends.
Bald tires and the rain was the culprit. oh yeah, riiight....and speed.

I really didnt understand the turning radius on the legend. Ive owned all big cars, Newyorker, Regal, Taurus. In those cars you accelerate before the corner and kinda float around the corner and you def have more play in the wheel. In these cars you accelerate while in the corner, and have minimal play. You move it and you turn, and I turned to hard man! I do think you have to experience something like that once to have respect for your vehicles capabilities. Im 27 with a perfect driving record. This was my one "get out of jail free" card. This was me looking around for cops after blowing off the road.
