Opposite lock




Opposite lock is a driving technique used to control oversteer and turn it to driver's advantage.

When a driver entering a turn induces (intentionally or not) rear axle slide and car starts to spin out of the road, experienced driver turns the steering wheel to the opposite direction and controls the trajectory by the gas pedal. More gas more turn, less gas less turn. It sounds pretty easy, and it is easy and fun, after you master it. And if you do, no sudden lose of grip will catch you off guard you will start to steer with gas instinctively.

Mastering this is a tough call. You need a low traction road surface to use more or less reasonable car speeds while you learn, and lots of space around to let your car stop by itself, in case you lose control completely (and you will lose it many times before you start getting a feel). If you do not live in a snowy area and do not have a huge deserted parking lot nearby, your best bet would be an advanced driving school.
