Today during lunch break at work I am following someone to lunch and playing catch up. On the road that my office is on there is an S like curve, on the 2nd curve( with trac off) I downshifted my IS into 3rd doing about 50 MPH to get more speed and next thing I know the back end comes sliding around, luckly I was able to steer out of it before completly loosing it. Scared my passanger and friend that I was catching up to half to death. Glad I know somewhat how to drive otherwise I would have hit a high curb and who knows what would have happend to my IS...... Point of story, be carefull with the TRAC off
