Dont increase speed or use the brake when entering corners. Both increase the risk of oversteer.

Slow down before entering the bend, and floor it after exiting(but not in the midst of) the bend

There are four major active causes of oversteer, but what you're likely to encounter depends on the car being driven (for more information on this please skip to the next section). Causes include:
  1. Entering the corner too fast
  2. Accelerating into the corner, too early or too aggressively
  3. Braking into the corner or mid corner
  4. Lifting off the throttle mid-corner.

hahah actually. i think this habit is good. it curbs understeer and guides the car nicely through the driving line of the corner. maintain good speed and also stability through the corner.

best part is, the feeling is dam shiok as you step on the gas once u enter the corner and smoothly take the shortest distance across the corner and exit on the outer lane. upps

Then try to correct your bad habit by increasing speed before curves, and speed up once entering corner.

Works for me

wrong technique la.

1) maintain speed before entering corner,
2) tap brakes before apex then turn,
3) once clear apex drop gear and floor

This is correct.
But drivers who cannot judge or see the apex and racing line will end up wrapping barriers and trees.

well easier said than done on streets if you consider other road users safety in mind. Those techniques are more applicable on track.

However on streets at lower speed it's better to adopt a slow in fast out methodology in general imo.

Feel like a racer and do it on streets, best case scenario, you escape unscathed, not so good case, your car and yourself wrapped around trees (we know which kind of drivers/cars do that often, and more likely than not, it's drivers not knowing the limits) and worst case, you bring along other road users.

So like what Weng say: Drive safely

and if you would like to race, please go track.

I lift off the throttle when near bend.. n depending on the turning circle, i will reduce/increase speed accordingly when in bend..

upon seeing a straight road ahead, lup throttle n exit bend..

SG roads no much bends la.. There's a diff between a turn n a bend.. a turn is something like the filter-left turn.. a bend is something like those roads entering a highway from an opposite direction
