QUOTE: "While maintaining your speed, pull up or step on the car's emergency brake. This will cause the wheels to lock up suddenly, creating a controlled skid. At the same time, turn the wheel sharply to the left at least a quarter or half-turn."
I reckon it's better to turn the steering wheel a fraction of a second before pulling the handbrake. But indeed make this fraction of a second as short as a blink of an eye.
