Icon6 Oh.....Yeah.....

When i pass by those digital speed limit signs that police put out
so you can see if you're speeding or not, i always floor it to see how high i can get it.

today i say one on my way to work.....since there was no one around at 5 am ...i downshifted to second and took off towards it

just before i passed the sign i shifted again into third.....I SQUEEKED MY TIRES IN THIRD GEAR!!!!

my little carbed and tuned 2.3 actually squeeked the tires in 3rd gear at 63MPH

i couldn't believe it.
you guys probably won't either.....


i know speeding is wrong on public roads so don't be too hard on me

but this totally made my day

Dumping the clutch on any car at that speed should squeak a tire . . .

Probably just your belt squealing.

Chirping tires means you are a poor shifter...in any vehicle, especially one with such low power.
