Re: chirping tires

Didn't know if I told you freaks or not, but yesterday i was cruising in the L and stopped on a straightaway and nailed it. when she slipped into 2nd the tires let out a bad ass bark. Not a little chirp like on the basketball court with new shoes - but a nice sound like the beginning of a burnout.

Thought I'd share my excitment with my 'friends'

Re: chirping tires

Is that posi? ...just be careful, if its more then a bark its a squeal, and the only sound after that is silence as the rubber loses adhesion and either smokes and stutters, or you do some kewl 360-540-720's down the road, blown vehicles like to exaggerate this as well 'so Ive heard'

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.
