Default Biggest smoke ever!?

Alright I was coming home from my uncles house when I came apon a construction zone that was 1 lane with 2 ways of traffic .. So one way would go and then the other but I think my way was getting shafted because only like 5 car lengths would move every 10 min.... So after about 20 min I decided to turn around and find some other way to get around... So I back up and turn around and in my aggrevation I slammed the gas. I have never ever done a burn out close to this size in any car.. I left about a 3 car length mark on the ground leaving and getting a huge thumbs up by a guy in a 80'* Flame Jobed Regal, I waved and laughed very hard. Then I see him follow suit with an equally impressive burn out in my rear view. I hate summer cuz the damn construction and I think I have had enough....

That'* sucks with the traffic and construction. That'* like normal in Michigan. But nice job leaving the tread. I'm sure you had a lot of heads turn.

I know. I don't like her either.

But yeah, everywhere I go now, there is some sort of construction. I don't know how close you are to me, but I'm sure its horrible everywhere.

At the end of my street where it meets Main St., which both are pretty busy streets, there'* MAJOR construction and typical huge delays. Let'* just say I have to floor it in anger several times a day. Although there've been no huge burnouts achieved yet. You must have started off on some gravel or something and then kept the RPMs so high it never re-gained traction.

Nice job!

Not necessarily. In the SSEi if we nail the gas from a stop it will spin the tires up to 20+, and the GTP will spin up to ~50. The GTP will spin the tires up to 20 with the traction control on. Really, if you nail the gas hard enough from a stop, even in a stock n/a 3800 you can leave some pretty decent marks. It doesn't take gravel, although I don't doubt that there was any around seeing it was around the construction.

Yeah there was a little gravel but that did add to it much. Where I had reversed I was on a small patch of black top so that let my wheel spin good. Anyways I went by there again today and my marks are there still EUEHEHEHE
