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.

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.

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

A straight line burn out to the "controlled" powerslide/donut is always cool in a hot rod.

Likewise.Growing up in Omaha,a place where you don't see the ground from November through March some years,we had an appreciation for our ice clad environment.We used to go to a large parking lot on the SE corner of 132nd and Center,where the had all of the light poles at the outside edge of the lot.We would come down the hill,whip the wheel,and spin for a couple of city blocks.By college,we got pretty artistic.I wish we would have filmed them.During the summer,it was burnout city.Those were the days.

It all depends on the room available. Streets and alleys=burnouts, but a big vacant lot......

It's cool as hell

That same engine with the 4 2 barrels in Laydrag's garage right now. Old Cabbage will tell you some stories if you see him. Awesome real deal guy.

Laydrag will have to chime in, but I think his Dad drove that car from GA to FLA like that. Damn hoodlum hot rodder

Donuts for the win.

Growing up in the Frozen North of Alberta, it's pretty much how everybody learned to drive. Getting yourself into and out of a controlled ice donut teaches you pretty fast how to steer into a spin, and how to steer with the gas pedal when the fronts have checked out.

As a teenager, I got pretty good at sliding into our drive way after a 540 (1.5 full spins) around the corner into the the cul-de-sac we lived on. The Old Man didn't like it, the neighbours hated it, but me and my Mustang II were having fun!

Poor kids today with their front wheel drive bore-wagons. They don't know what they're missing.

i grew up back in Nova Scotia, pretty much along any road there would be a hill we called burnout hill, by the end of the summer you were lucky to see any pavement at all, some gas stations that were off the beaten track would have black marks leading away in every direction, i think we need a picture thread of burnout hills.

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
