an accidental light up...

So I was just waiting to turn onto my street today...finally got a chance to turn, and to my surprise, I accidentally "lit 'em up" around the corner Maybe it's just my new tires breaking in, but man, this car just has to put a smile on your face I'm loving the 60 degree temps.

Hopefully It wasn't a full on burn out or anything, but it did kind of catch me by surprise.

Nope. My friend pealed out making a turn failing to see the officer to his left (it was dark). The officer pulled him over and asked "So who were you trying to impress?" My not always bright friend replied. "I don't know you hopefully!" He ended up with a nice "excessive start from stop" ticket and a good fine. lol Course he was driving a dodge.......

According to his profile, it's a V6. These cold temps do give them some unexpected power and the tires less bite.

The V6 automatics dont have the Posi rear end like the manuals and the V8's... only spinning 1 is normal for them.

that happens to me alot when I am trying to beat traffic before a turn, I'll hit the turn and punch the throttle a little bit then end up going sideways down the street I'm turning onto. lol it's fun but everytime I do it I'm terrified of cops being in the trees waiting for me. I hate VA there are too many places for cops to hide.

you guys that are getting sideways by surprise should at least drive in comp mode. driving around with traction control and stability control completely off can get hairy in traffic. just be careful is all.
