warneej wiped out like that but instead of dirt, he got a face full of tire..
hah yeah i spun out HARD a few weeks ago and got a mouth full of my own tire smoke

and then this past weekend i did it again...i'm the only FWD car i've seen at any of my events that can manage to spin...a mini cooper S came close but wasn't going fast enough to rotate past 90

i could never drive with my windows up tho, i feel so out of tune with the surroundings if i can't feel the wind and whatnot

nice dirty-ass interior haha

Dcl2049 I'm glad we have a huge landing pad for helicopters at our region rather than a narrow runway to race on. That's insane.

Did you have to change your shorts after that? I know I would have... I would be so worried I'd take the roll after digging my tires into the dirt like that.

jinstall That is why we have big red flags.

I'd rather have that rule, but the local club wants windows down so they can yell to you if something's wrong upcourse. I thought that's what the flags were for :)

Well since I'm planning on selling it, it's high time for a lovely detailing. I'm taking it in tomorrow in fact.
