View Full Version : J-turn-truck/SUV

Any one have a video of an SUV doing a J turn, where you drive backwards somewhat fast then turn the wheel causing the vehicle to whip around so your pointing forward??
I have a ****** old SUV and can do an E-brake turn and slide around corners but haven't quite worked up the nerve to attempt a J turn, I'm worried I'll roll it if I'm just a little off.

SO any videos, or has anyone here ever performed this maneuver in a truck?

J-Turns require a certain brake bias, and good control of the brake pedal. E-brake locks up the rear, a good 80/20 bias with almost lock up the fronts without grabbing the rears. It's a power slide, in reverse.

I thought you just drove in revers at like 30mph then crank the wheel around, didn't think there was any braking involved.

thats not a J turn, just a hand brake u-turn, don't know the special name.
