I had a great time smashing cones. I could never get used to the width of the car and kept catching cones on the passengers side (rear?) by getting too close to them. Only turned it backwards once. My Pirelli Scorpions were skins and I put on the Avid Touring tires today. Not quite the same feel, but should be a good riding tire.

Great way to end the season. The datalog shows 78 MPH when I was sideways and backwards. Mainly wheelspin. FWD habits don't work very well when the tail wags out too far. I'll have to work on that habit. I got along quite a ways (about like a drift video) until I met full lock on the steering.
