Question Have you ever done a Top Gear like powerslide/counter steer in your D90?

Thanks to this mornings rain, I did a Tokyo drift slide while making a right turn to get to work that required countersteer to keep straight. I had a little speed going because I was trying to make the light. The people on the other side of the double yellow line looked terrified but I felt like I had control throughout the drift. First time I've ever done that on a D90, bet it looked awesome.

It's a fairly common sensation on dirt roads.

I always thought it would be difficult to do it in a D90 thanks to fulltime 4wheel drive.

For some reason, it seems to make it worse. Darn thing seems like it's never going to turn.
