Note I also mentioned to not slam the brakes in my post.

At the exteme these techniques can be used to "rotate" the car and point it into a turn. The clutch should only be depressed when you are changing gears and then only for a very short time. You want to minimize the amount of time that the engine is not coupled to the drive wheels.

Skip Barber racing ( has a book and a video called "Going Faster" that explains these techniques very clearly.
