Too bad it was wet out there, would have been fun to see them playing on a dry track.

Actually I'm glad you brought this up, man. I've always heard the same, never do a burnout with street tires, but haven't you ever noticed after you spin your street tires you hear rocks kicking up off of the tires and hitting your inner wheel well or physically see tiny pebbles stuck on your tires? My question is if they do indeed get stickier when heated they why does everyone say no to street tire burnouts? In all seriousness, I've been pondering this for a few days now.

well for one, he's running DR's, so they are far from pointless and actually needed. Long extravigant burnouts in normal street tires are pointless. But a quick little one is still good because you need to create heat in the tire.


But things like NT555R's, BFG drag radials, etc definately need a burnout to heat up the tires.



I notice a good difference with even my T1R's heated and cold (my car is f'ing scary with cold tires)

Why? He doesn't owe you shit. He doesn't have to go to any trouble if he doesn't want to. If you don't like his threads, stay out of them.

Underground builds some badass cars. A good friend of mine, and former roommate bought a Saleen S351 that he built....google Saleen Flyby and thats the car. The guy he bought it from had replaced it with a viper that was being built by Underground as well.

I really liked the 07 sti limited version with the lip spoiler, the new one just doesn't do it for me, and I am a subaru owner myself!

After personally seeing a brand new white STI last sunday, I have to say the the new subbie is hot. my wife did not like the hatch body style, but I think that for the perormance and clean body lines, the STI is a winner.

i have crazy respect for Benz's AMG cars all of those are Autos. and put down some CRAZY fast times for how heavy they are. your talking like the E63 running 12s with a automatic, street tires and 2 tons of steel. that's impressive to me.

I agree. Cant beat audis styling and sport but you also cant beat lexus quality. Anyone would be lucky to own either car.
