    I know how you feel. A few months ago I spun in a go kart at 45 mph (hopped a fast chicane). It's not a great feeling when the vehicle is not fully in your control.

    Congratulations, now you have made the first step towards becoming a race driver. This is why i keep saying to people that the "simulators" that are available to us....are nothing but videogames. They don't help you in any way because reality is very very different. So stop trying to do on the road, things you do in videogames or you're you'll find out how different it is, the hard way.

    If you ever do end up racing again in wet conditions then you will need to improve your throttle footwork, will make a world of difference between spinning out and keeping your car in control when it's trying to spin. You should practice throttle control in your actual car as it'll help you get the feel for when your car is about to slip and where your tire's peak grip is, once you get it down then you can transfer the skills over to your racing career.

    A couple questions and an observation…. Do you not have radios to call in the ECT issue (and have a spotter)? If a sim had realistic weather (driving blind when following). would you want to play it? On the starter… If that was my street car, I would think the solenoid in the starter was bad, allowing the starter to spin up, but never engaging with the engine.
