You should have lowered the fronts to 18 too, then pumped up the backs when
you got to the station :)

I've had a Corvair oversteer really bad. Back in the late '70s, I was 16
years old, going about double the recommended speed on a switchback gravel
road that hugged the side of a mountain. The road was barely wide enough to
fit two cars on it side-by-side. I was using the whole road in a rhythm,
left, right, left, right, etc., when all of a sudden: ONCOMING CAR!!!! I was
in the middle of a left-hand turn, I cut the wheel right to get the car onto
the outside part of the road and around the oncoming car, and when I cut it
back left, it just kept on going. I saved it form spinning or going off the
edge on the right, but I really don't know how. I don't even know how the
other driver reacted to it, he was already past when all the drama occurred.

Man, those were the days :)
