THAT was cool! [sm=gears.gif]

Gotta wonder if that car had a limited-slip - observe the first burnout - you don't see the rear wheel moving and the smoke is clearly coming from the other side of the car. Hopefully you won't have to upgrade to an SRT to get a limited-slip, I hope they at least offer it as an option on the R/T.

Otherwise, VERY cool. The addition of the Viper and Charger SRT8 was a nice touch - they should have done more with those.

Yes, I noted that single tire burn.... concerning.

When the car shifted from clockwise to counterclockwise, I really like how balanced and smooth it shifter over....not a lot of body roll. Very nice!

I'm sorry, but "drifting" or its vile cousin, the "burnout," are the two STUPIDEST things ever done with cars. I never even heard of "drifting" till the late Dale Earnhardt (the NASCAR driver I hated the worst in the 1980s -- I was always a Bill Elliott fan, when NASCAR was still semi-realistic) started doing it to carve a cursive, lower-case "e" into the infield after he'd occasionally win a race). And "burnouts" used to be called "brake-stands" and were used ONLY when you were using something like a 440 Magnum with autotrans to go off the line in a race for MONEY. Why anybody would subject ANY sort of car to that abuse unnecessarily should have their license revoked immediately, because it's obvious they're too stupid to drive. OK. End of rant.

RoswellGrey, while I know you don't like drifting, the one thing this technique does teach is how to recover a car if you lose control when hitting the breaks hard. I know, I know, the new break technology is supposed to take care of that but is doen't and having some good driving skills is always a good thing to prevent an accident.

THat challenger had to be a 5.7 car not a 6.1 and there should be some sorta rule about all v8s haveing a sure grip grip .I will have to see how well the 6.1 lanches or I will be changeing gears right away.I already plan some sort of upgrades I want at least 500 plus horse .I have drove several 500 shelbys are there a pretty fun car and easy to turn 600 hp .My shelby 350 is superchargerd and had a whole list of other things done and trust me 425 hp isnt enough .I dont abuse my cars but I do plan on enjoying them to the fullest .
