why would you want to do that in the celica? that just seems like a really good way to impose damage
It is real fun! I have always been interested in "stunt" driving. In a front wheel drive car, there is really not a lot of stuff we can do...other than hand brake turns... 360 spins.(VERY difficult by the way).
I just love to have fun in my car. If it ends up braking something...then I guess I will pay for it. Oh, and i will video tape myself foing it...I just have NO IDEA how to host it...what format to do it in...blah blah blah.
If you have an automatic, its real badass to go like hell in reverse & then sudenly crank the wheel & hit the throttle. Half way through the spin, crank the wheel back & back into drive & throttle again. I've done it on wet pavement, never dry because the poor Celi would probably bend or break.
Doing a full 360 & catching it just right & having enough forward momentum to keep going in the direction you started is cool. On wet pavement its possible, but very difficult. I landed it once & it took maybe 5 tries & a lot of speed.
Like he said, buy yourself a beater. I had a Pontiac 6000 FWD & mad did that thing take a beating. I had a bet with a buddy that has a Chevy 4X4, who could make it up this big hill faster. It was washed out, big ruts, rocks & all kinds of crap. I went into the hill flying, bouncing & I made it up so fast that I caught air when I hit the edge of the pavement at the road on top. He got stuck twice on the way up & took at least twice as long. That Pontiac cost me $600 & beat on it for 50,000 miles before I sold it for $200.
