Sideways through 4 of the 6 gears on the Camaro today. I don't do it too much cuz 20's are 'spensive.

Who cares.

I had one fast car in my life, and it took a long time for my license to recover

I just cruise now, mostly.

Speed it the greatest feeling. But do it legally. Spent the evening at the dragstrip tonight. My 2015 duramax had a best quater mile et of 12.92 . Took the drag car out snapped a yoke so since I only made 2 passes said he'll I'll run the truck. I knew it was quick but damn it really impressed me. First pass of the year in the car and busted out a 6.34 et . Second pass snapped the yoke on the launch. Big Hp heavy car = broken weak link

Had a big block Cordoba (oddly, no corinthian leather) that I street raced back in the early 80's. Gutted all the sound deadening, took out all the rubber between the axle and springs, and between the front subframe and unibody. Buddy of mine raced a big block Cuda back then, and I got a lot of his castoffs.

Best time was a 12.41 @ 92.something mph at Milan- saw somebody lose a driveshaft at the track and decided racing the daily driver was not a great idea.

Car was fun, usually picked on guys with Turbo T/A's and their girlfriend in the car. After one summer though I was in danger of losing my license.

Big part of why I wasn't looking for a V8 Camaro, I beat on the V6 bad enough.

This is why I can't own a gas car. No self control.

I do burnouts in my driveway with my van, one foot behind the TransVan.

Last night, somebody one block over lit em up for the entire block. Usually it's sport bikes though.

I used to enter my old 50cc Honda Elite in burnout contests. It could smoke that tiny tire pretty good, the 3 or 4 people in the crowd that got the joke made it worth it.

What's cooler? Burnouts or mad flex?
