no. he did not do a donut in a parking lot. he did manage to spin the car 180*, but he didnt do a donut. and who knows.... in a parking lot that small, if it had been a little more wet, he could have slid right back into someone elses car.


not saying I've never done stuff like this in the past, but its come back to bite me more than once. next time, find a bigger parking lot.



preferably an empty one

You didn't stall the car...the effects of the cars rotation will temporarily starve the car for fuel. Same effects as a PIT maneuver used by police.

If you would have done a full donut (insert cop joke here) you wouldn't have stalled the car.

let's just chalk this up to youthful exuberance and the sense of invincibility. nice job with the 180 and it is great that you didn't slide back into the other cars. now, go forth and try to survive until you're >30 and mentally grow into that body.

SWH Rule #7 - It is always better to be silent and thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

OK I'll insert the cop joke...



Hey, take it from Banshee, as a cop he is an expert on donuts!







There you go!

haha It just looks close to the other cars it really wasnt and the parking lot is where I work before hours the people who where filming owned the vans in the back as far as the guy who says he can read the plate thats not true because the car has no plates just a temp sticker i DOUBT you can read with the low resolution. But anyway it was just a one time fun thing that looks cool and was a PERFECT 180'. I just love this thing.
