This is the crash that killed the trailing arm. You don't see the spin after this but you can see what happened. It's a splash not smoke on the front btw.

It's a rough transition from outfield to infield. I've never been able to get it in my own car (funny I can do it in others). If you hit it too fast, you spin. Too slow, you don't rotate enough and just straighten out. I need to learn the long slide.

Looks like a good dip. Throttle modulation and handbrake should get you through. Scrub speed with the handbrake and left foot (set your angle), then ease back into the throttle after the bump. You want to make sure your not over-rotated when you hit that transition.

I was going to try that. but I still have a shattered ebrake so my car goes "kachuka kachuka" at low speeds unless I leave the Ebrake up 1 click :)

Oh the list of shit I need to fix.

you should make a list of what you don't need to fix, probably shorter. :)
