Best thing to do is throw it in neutral. Never throw it in a gear that is going to slow you down quickly. When you throw it in a lower gear the compression is trying to slow you down and will make you slide even worse. Tip for next time.

Or you could of tried to pull the ebrake to try and slide the car around a different way, but that is me talking in front of a computer and not sliding when it all happens in a matter of a couple of sec.

Positive is it is going to get fixed and you didn't get hurt, but if it happens again try the nuetral trick thumbsup

if i had pulled the ebrake then i would have caused more damage thought about that i had the time to there was nothing i could have done it was a sheet of ice and summer tires lite cars and ice dont mix to well i thought ide never have to write bout me fuckin my baby up but shit happens like i said at least i get my body kit painted and i didnt drop the clutch i played with it to try n slow me down. there was nothing i could have done to help that situation except if i had stoped compleatly then turned but i didnt. o well like i said least i get my kit painted

when we got our 6 inches of snow last week, it was only a problem when it started to rain, and all of it turned to ice. i fell at the gas station on about 4 inches of ice. it was hella funny. rofl
