Classroom time is minimal, and after the first day we rarely saw it. After a brief introduction to the concept of the skid cars, we were behind the wheels. The hydraulics lift and unload the front or rear of the car to simulate extreme understeer and oversteer, respectively. Here the Caddy is in full understeer and pushing toward the outside of the skidpad. The correct reaction is to lift off the throttle to transfer weight to the front and lightly apply brakes if necessary to increase traction. The key is to avoid adding steering until traction returns to avoid a snap.
