Congrats! I had no idea what my first spin might reveal, then it went as well as yours.

Common trouble at that low of speed? Possible cause?
You are pushing the front tire to one side to turn the rig and your trail is trying to pull it back straight. Mine does the same even though I would not call it "very strong", and my decision about trail will be made in relation to shake at higher speeds.

I drive like an old man because I am one, and that gives me a right to take my time whenever I have to make a hard turn wherever!
