Default My mom just laid four foot of rubber!

Mom hasn't driven the car since the first day I got it, and she just left for a "Quick" run to Walmart, She backed out of the drive, Straightened it on the road, did a rolling shift and lit'em up! I got to see out my window, and I already got a call from a neighbor who thought it was me, but I don't have the balls to do it right in front of the house.... I get to give her hell now

You Mom feels the need to burn rubber. It is exciting! I once had a 1977 Ford LTDII that could burn rubber in reverse. That car had big balls!! One night it was running rough and my friend looked over at the guy next to us and he kept motioning to race when the light turned green and I left him in my dust. We got to the next red light and he wanted another go at it and history repeated itself. He just smiled and gave me the thumbs up.

I dont see why it would be illegal. If your car is made with lots of power and chirps oh well.

Police dont give tickets to ppl who squeal there tires while turning do they?

Have fun and screw the neighbours. Bonnytrek has lit them up for a good 5 seconds while leaving my house a few times.

um yeah.. that'* how I got my one and only ticket. $90 fine for "excessive tire noise" and a warning for "wreckless driving," because my tires squealed when I took a turn 'fast' at 18 MPH at a 4-way...right.. (this was in my old 88 LeSabre which had granny suspension and would squeal the tires around just about any turn.. it was pitiful!) The riv handles a 100x better and it'* hard to get them to squeal in that car, it takes turns smoothly.
