Default More M.net retardation.

Maybe I'm getting old or something, but I think this behavior is completely retarded.

rainy day drifting?

I'm really surprised the ModNazi's haven't squashed this yet.

Jason's probably screwing around. He's a pretty knowledgable dude.

YES! ! ! Hell we could start one and transfer about 20 recent threads over to get it going. But then the BS forum would come to a schreeeeeching hault.

I'll admit that I was doing that exact thing yesterday (with a couple other people). Seeing my friend's 240sx go sideways at 60 is pretty entertaining (he saved it). 300hp + 195s = :gay:

I love getting to work in the morning when the parking lot is wet. I do a slow-motion drift 180 degrees and slide into my parking spot. It's totally controllable and effortless and without the squealing tires (which can be heard on the dry days).

No because I drive on public roads.

I'll take the WRX into this one area when it's rained though. There's a housing developement that never got developed beyond grading the dirt for the streets. Actually I think it was supposed to be a main street because it's wide as can be. Anyways, it's graded perfectly so you can drive all over it at decent speeds without fear of massive irregularities to destroy your suspension.
