Default "The Bonneville"

I'm at Advance the other day and the conversation again turns to my ability to leave dual stripes. There'* speculation about how much rubber can be burned off in one burnout with both roasting. And then he steals the show, one of the guys says.. "remember the bonneville we saw that video of" to the other. Now there'* a long discussion about some car that absolutely slaughtered the tires. We'll call it ... The Bonneville, since that'* how these guys know it.

Black
Bonneville
00+

Both tires smoked off the car in about 30 seconds...hmmmmm

I mentioned that I've driven that car and seen the two marks in front of the dumpster. My car can't compare...lol

Yeah, you didn't mention the fact that any car strapped down could do that, especially easy with an LSD?

But 8-ball is fun, I drove her when she had "only" about 400lb/ft and the first Intense PCM...

I've got my doubts about the C and L27 motors, guess they probably would though.
