Wow, those guys were doing rolling burnouts just like fuel cars. Then they called up funny cars. First pair Force totally whited out the first 1/8th mile in smoke. I couldn't see the fence, guardrail, ANYTHING. Next thing I did see parting the clouds was John backing the Oldsmobile up at what looked like about 80 MPH. After that I have little excitement over burnouts.
    So what your saying is you got burn out on burnouts .

    Plus I also discovered drifting where they do it while more or less racing.....

    Sitting in one place and just roasting them is stupid . Roasting them while going down the road ......that's a different story .

    I think the fascination with burning rubber CAN be gotten over. Just watch some video of the Australian Summernationals and you really gotta wonder WHY? They bolt on skinny tires. They bolt on tires that burn in COLORS. WHY?

    I think that's the latest edit I've ever seen . Longest one I've done was 1/8 of a mile with a 350 / turbo 400 S10 . I would say coincidentally I'm building another one but with a 5 speed but since I've been slowly working one it for 3 years , it was bound to over lap with someone good story .

    Yep..100 feet.Its quite easy too..just 1 or 2 sec on the brake,and then stand on it..i switch to sec gear after 10 feet or so..with 2,73 gears,the rear tires will have a long time waiting for traction...that feeling,when you lay rubber on asphalt so easy,is a good one.

    Also,doing 40mph at the highway,and shift down in first gear..20 feet there too.

    Yep..i have had plans of cycling,but its too fun driving..
    I cant belive i wrote 100 feet..it was actually 600 feet,or 204 meters.

    Its a 4L80,so an auto..And a healthy bigblock and 2,73 gears make lots of smoke.

    think we can all relate to that last sentence about all of the times we didn't get caught! If you say no, you're lying!

    True, In my 20's I think they had a tracking device on my car! I got in trouble all the time, Ugh. So that's one benefit of getting older ;)
