I pulled a 20' on semi wet surfaced Lorne Park rd after crossing some tracks. Turned a few heads, it was kinda neat to see how high the tach and speedo go so quickly once traction is broken.

Good times

Can't do that to often tho

When you say "nail the gas" I assume you mean "stomp the sh** out of it" ?

I saw someone do that and something big and heavy broke off from under his Jeep.

Everytime it rains i'm spinning tires off lights... Specially when its just enough to break loosen the oil and stuff on the road..I chirped them once leaving next to a girl i knew from work, didn't mean to, and she thought i was trying to burn out.. Meh. Anyone ever see the shot of the 10-15 F body cars lighting them up at the end of a parking lot next to a forrest? Wow that was huge smoke!

Best burnout i've ever seen was my last day of highschool. A kid parked in the back row (up against a big hill) 2 cars from me lit em up big time. He had a thunderbird or cougar, and did it in the same parking spot for probably a minute, When he pulled out the pavement was worn away, and about 2" deeper where his tires were. Nice HUGE grooves. Later I found out that the fire dept was called in, and ran thru the woods and the hill and stuff. I also think they somehow figured out who it was too. Crazy, gotta love RWD!

dbtk, I've got a 30' stripe in front of the house I layed for Jseabert and his brothers (and parents) a couple months back. Dry pavement, new tires, no brake. I think it was a bit easier for me than your GP because of the added weight. Your car tends to WANT to launch a bit quicker.

I don't wanna do that again until the tire budget looks a bit more promising!
We can't do burnouts in front of our house, because we live in a Subdivision and there are rules about crap like that. My dad accidently chirped the tires driving up the hill in front of our house in our subdivision a week or two ago because it is just really easy to do, and to say the least, our neighbors were not the happiest people. We have to at least exit the subdivision before doing things like that.

As for the burnout I was talking about before, I'm not sure how long it actually was, but through the rear window, after the smoke cleared from us setting still for 10 seconds, it looked to be about that long. We weren't really trying to see how long we could make one, (the traction control was on, so I am sure that didn't help either) we were actually testing out the LSD (the 2nd one, long story), to make sure it worked properly.

As for the tires, my dad is trying to burn up his tires. They are the factory tires and they have 19k on them, and he is trying to kill them so he has a reason to put on the Eagle F1'* he wants to get. The factory tires suck though, everytime he pulls into a parking space the squeal, the squeal almost all the time, it is weird, because they just started doing it, and they aren't low (or high) on pressure or anything. I just personally think he should throw them out and get the new ones now, but the money isn't coming out of my pocket, so I don't really have much say. The tires have about 35k worth of wear on them, because the car is not driven nicely, so even though they only have 19k on them, they are half worn out already.

I understand completely where you are coming from about the tire budget. If I had to pay for tires, I wouldn't be spinning them the least bit, but as I said, my dad wants to kill his tires, and he doesn't seem to have a problem with putting new tires on our cars all the time, so whatever.

So, are you saying the FD was called in because the pavement caught on fire? I guess I don't quite understand the part about the FD. I saw a burnout one time that dug about 1 inch into the ground and caught the pavement on fire, that was AWESOME. It is definately a cool thing to see.

No, the smoke was well over 100 ft fromt he ground, and it kept coming, so either the school faculty, or some kid called in the FD. I was gone well before that. Kinda glad i didn't want to have to give a statement or whatever on my last day of HS..

I had a 78 Delta 88 back when, and I did a power-brake burnout with it in a grocery store parking lot. Dugg some pretty nice grooves in the pavement myself. I think it may have been a bit easier becase of it being such a heavy car, and it was summer in Texas, so the pavement was already kinda soft.

And after pulling thescreen and the initial air box mod on the Bonne, I managed to smoke the tires pretty good pulling out of the parking lot here at work. Not much done to the road, and the resufraced the next week, but when I got back that night, I did have an e-mail from my boss that said management didn't think it was funny.
