    When spinning a doughnut or doing brodies, do you turn left and spin around counter clockwise? Just one of those things I've noticed from me or others... its usually always counter clockwise.

    (probably cause you can see what you're turing into easier)

    CCW was a whole lot easier with most cars I had...open diff's. Trying to do them CW just made a lot of smoke from the right rear.

    It don't matter. I think that ccw the body rolls away from you makeing it feel more comfortable.
    It is the same when it comes to being out camber.
    I feel safer with me being on the high side rather the low.
    It is just one of those what feels right things.

    I've heard that about you

    Anyways, I do either, but prefer CCW as I feel I have better "visual control".
