Default Donuts or Burn Outs?



It's hard to say which one is more fun to do, and neither of them are exactly "smart" things to perform with your car, but which maneuver is more your style? Laying a straight patch of rubber and a white smokey cloud, or pitching your front wheels to...

cool vid thanks for posting. if you tryed to do anything like that here and now you'd not only lose your car and licence but also get a massive fine and possibly jail time.

and hangin' nuts is definately more fun than just a static burnout. if you wanna see some vids of some awesome burnouts, youtube gary myers or clint ogilvie. i won't post a link cos the cars arent exactly on topic.

Icy dough nuts are always fun.
Empty parking lots are fair game for icy maneuvers.

Best burn out I've accomplished was solid 350 feet long with three small breaks 1-2, 2-3, & 3-4 with more smoke than I thought possible


Hardest is a perfect motorcycle circle doughnut with a burnout thru the center.

You California guys can't enjoy the fun of icy donuts. The hard part today is finding a big enough parking with no light poles. One of the most fun times for me was a parking lot on a construction job that filled up with melted snow. When it froze over night it was like a skating rink, smooth as class...360 degrees? 720 was more like it. A free carnival ride. The GEM store parking lot was always a great place to play. No poles and no curbs inside the perimeter and a nice down grade too for a longer ride.

PS I was driving a 63 327 340HP Corvette. big fun

We California guys have to inflate our tires to 80 PSI to have any fun. Darned logistics!

1959, when Spartan Stadium was first built (San Jose State's football stadium) they had a huge parking lot, blacktopped with gravel...no light poles yet, just a fresh flat lot, 1 acre.

Guys were turning donuts, (1st gear, slow, controlled...) I drove up in my channelled 'A' Coupe with the 5/16 X 14 flattie, 3.54 rear...some guys said, "Hey, spin the hot rod..."

I took off in low, grabbed second, and side stepped the clutch...Man, what a ride...but nearly at the apex of the 'hooker', I high-sided it, man the Coupe was up at the balance point...(on the left wheels) and I got the sense to lean hard to the right, barely saved it...It crashed down, on the wheels, still going, maybe 30 MPH...
shared the skit outa me... LOL

I think 6:11 in the video was a split moment before folding over a stop sign. hahahaaa Man, straight up hooliganism. Do-nuts and beer! Love the little Renault 4cv getting in on the action. That big ol' flatbed was bitchin', although I was fearing for the front of the building....

Since I was in to drag racing, it's a straight line burnout for me. But only if there's money on the line. I'm not rich so I hate to break things.

Man I'd love to do that!
I'd even have a special car for parking lots *with* poles!

That intersection in the first series of video must have had a solid coating of rubber on it.

The second gear sashay is where it's at. Pull off in first, nail second, and hang on for the side step. I'm probably a bad influence but my 6 yr old begs me to "squeak the tires" in the truck (chirp in second).

Awesome video.

That's why I always caveat:

"Iím pretty darn sure this old 8mm (video) film has appeared on here somewhere before..."

Trust me, it's hard to find original stuff to post 104 times a year!
