    When I wanted to slow down, I would throw it into neutral so that I'm not trying to make the brakes fight the engine. I would also wear a seatbelt.

          You can downshift an automatic.

            Apparently the one in comet drivers comet was some fancy ass drag shifter that locks out downshifting unless you do some secret handshake, which he forgot how to do

      Veer quickly right to left until it flips so I can use the roof brake.

      No but morons with no driving training need to learn the concept of turning brake. You lose speed during turns, so he can veer rapidly and will lose speed as well as let everyone else know something is wrong. Ideally, you want to slow enough to get to a point where you can get the car driving in a small circle, cut the engine, and wait until it stops. Cutting the engine will stop it from further accelerating but not you'll lose your power steering and likely any ability to use turn braking. There's a reason for emergency brakes, not sure why he went on a public road in a car not equipped with them...

      Use throttle to break traction, do a 180 to come to a stop, kill ignition before it regains grip and accelerates again.

      This. As soon as I notice the brake fade, I'd limp it back to the garage.

      >waiting for brake fade
      >sticky throttle in 1300hp car on public roads is fine
      You are just as moronic as the boomer.

      How did he drive it at all?

      Poorly, as was made evident.

    I've been in this situation before. Manual so downshifted and threw it into the lane withe the fewest cars. Pulled the e-brake just enough to not lock up the back, stopped a few inches just behind the front car. Always check your shitboxes, lads.

    1.) shift into first gear
    2.) cut the ignition and slow down via engine compression

      Start cranking the wheel left and right aggressively, using the friction of the skidding tires to slow me down

      >American car
      >turn

      Unless this was a complete restomod, it has so much slop in the suspension that there'd be a 5 second delay between turning the wheel and the car doing anything.

    >immediately put it in neutral so I don't accelerate into the cars at the light
    >ride the failing brakes to slow as much as possible before reaching the intersection
    >hop a curb where there are no pedestrians and round the corner onto a clear street
    >kill the engine and let it slow and pull to the side
    >attempt to pull into a parking lot but without power steering wind up putting it into a bush
    Literally happened to me as a teen delivering pizzas in a shitbox pickup my dad got me. Engine was fine despite over-revving for a bit. Throttle cable was cheap and easy part to replace. Nothing but a bush was permanently damaged. No one wound up in a hospital.

    I would have installed functional brakes for the amount of power the engine makes so the car couldn't cook the brakes until the faded, and the NHRA mandated return springs so the throttle couldn't get jammed open in the first place, then I wouldn't have ridden the car around on the brakes the entire fricking time and caused the brakes to fade and instead shifted into neutral at lights like I do with my car when it's loping too hard.
