With gas and brakes, there’s no way around the fact that you’re going to need to stop and reorientate to get the car moving again.
But you don’t need to wait until you’re in the middle of a twisty stretch to do so.
To make things easier, we’re going take a look at how to stop an engine and then reorient it to get it moving again on a tight twisty road.1.
Turn off the engine with the engine on (hold the button until the car goes off the road)2.
Hold the engine down (in the same spot you started the engine)3.
Turn the engine off4.
Turn on the engine and wait for the car to come to a complete stop (don’t panic if the car keeps going forward!)
The most important thing to remember is to wait for your car to stop before turning the engine back on.
Once the engine is off, you’re ready to get moving.
If your car starts to spin out of control, take a moment to check the engine.
If you see any of the warning lights come on, it means the car’s spinning out of power.
Turn it off.
This will give you the opportunity to reorient the car and avoid spin-out.
Now that you have your car immobilized, you can reorient your car and move it forward to find your way around tricky curves.
If you’re still not sure what to do, look at the diagram below to get an idea of what the different maneuvers are.
