Default Little fun in our 253whp 91T (video)

What can I say, I had a set of tires I'd never actually DRIVE on, and a perfectly good parking lot... why not?

I try , and the guys and AutoFab Motorsports a couple doors down help out a good bit too. My rings are still pretty much ruling the lot though, nearly a month later. Hopefully the landlord doesn't come by...

LOL, just blame it on AutoFab. I'm pretty sure they did it. Friggin hooligans.

Oh, I forgot, my "donut spot" is behind the Circuit City off Steve Reynolds. Haven't been up there in the turbo miata yet, but need to soon...

Just donuts :(

I could do that in my car with 150 less hp. Take this thing out on the highway and lets see it run.

Btw. I like your mounting location for the mspnp, but its so uneventful. Have you guys thought of maybe incorporating some red LED's into it so the letters light up.

Donuts are irresponsible and unsafe. Think of all the wooden steering wheels and genuine mazda accessories you could purchase. I'm pretty sure the megasquirt upset the "balance" of your collector car.

Have you looked at one in the dark yet? We weren't overly intentional about it, but they do glow a bit....

I'll take a video request... what would be good, that won't get me in too much trouble

As for donuts with n/a power, these cars do awesome donuts period, but n/a, you're not going to get close to this as you'll be stuck in 1st gear which doesn't get the tire temps up and doesn't produce anywhere near as much smoke. I was launching in 2nd from a stop at several points in that vid and immediately lighting them up .

My 96 (NA w/ torsenII) would do donuts, but not like that. Had to start in 1st, and could shift to 2nd when swinging about. Wouldn't make that kind of smoke either.

The PNP glows red in the dark.

I'm liking Sam's request. Maybe some on-ramps, speedo shot, driving shot, passing cars (not TOO fast but to give a good indication of acceleration). I-85 might make a nice setting.

lol, don't get the man in trouble. too much construction on 85. Local patrol and GSP is everywhere, as the speed limit was lowered and fines were doubled. I'm sure there will be no shortage of videos this spring, when AtlantaDragway and autox open back up.
