Anyone get video of the ones I did Saturday night? Red vrt corrado.... Want some from outside the car...
Huh, All I know is that I saw a truck do a burnout at a stop sign and immediately get pulled over. Along with quite a few other people.
All I know is that stuff like that, to me, reflects poorly on the Vw community and scene. Along with all the stuff being stolen.
I just wanna know who the girl in that lifted silverado was LOL
And people take the burnout thing way too seriously.... Why would the town kick us out for it when every citation is $700?? ****, they probably bank off of the retards doing burnouts and such. Atleast nobody was out street racing or anything like that...
Basically, as long as nobody is damaging any cars but their own I don't see the harm. If they get pulled they'll have to pay for it, if they don't they just cook down their tires... The rubber wears off the pavement with time and the city makes a ton of money at a time of year they're probably not too busy.. So people should chill the f out and post burnout videos lol
i myself participated in the burning of tires. it was the black mk2 coupe. i left a mark all the way down the street! btw your corrado sounds sick.
on that note did anyone get any photos of my coupe? it's nothing special but i would love to see some rolling shots, parked, just anything. it may not be bagged and on a set of rotiform or bbs, but i built it all myself minus the widening of the steelies...
Here you go man, it was taken with an ipod but it's better than nothing
Pretty sick Corrado
The cops were kind of passive until a bottle was thrown at a truck driving by. I don't really care for them, but there really is no way to avoid them. The cops did what they had to. If getting some ridiculous $$$ ticket for doing one isn't deterrent enough I'm not sure what would keep people from doing them.
What disgusted me was all the trash that was left when the cops finally broke things up. I cleaned up what I could, since I was staying in one of the condo's on the street where all the burnouts were occurring. The city of Helen was kind to allow us to use their city for our event, yet we repay them by trashing it...
My friend and I were staying in the same condo and noticed the thrash. I think that I saw you picking it up but they city needs to provide more trash cans around town for events like this. Not excuse for people littering though.
It was fun and don't mind the burnouts at all as long as people are aware and cautious. It's part of the show and happens everywhere, no need to get purist about it. Why would someone spend thousands of dollars upgrading their engines if you're not going to run them? Against the law? yeah but what's not. We're all playing our cards and that's human behavior... I think.
Anyway, this thread was about burnout videos, anymore videos?
Feel free to do burnouts all you want on private property, but downtown Helen is probably one of the worst possible places I think you could pick. It is indeed all in good fun but still, use your ****ing head. Go find a place not completely packed with people to do it if you must do it on the road.
Or god forbid, go to a track day and actually use the tires.
I'm honestly surprised other members/the organizers let you guys get away with it. Most every other show/motor sports event... this kind of shenanigans gets you kicked out and banned.
Besides, its not like there wasn't a huge rural mountain drive where you could have pulled off on a side road and burned your tires to your hearts content. In a context like this you'd probably have a whole boatload more badass pictures and videos of said shenanigans, while keeping it as safe as possible on a public road.
*I do find it amusing that people will complain about others stealing their valve stem caps and centercaps while still turning a totally blind eye to people doing burnouts in a crowded downtown area with people and families walking around. THAT, my friend, is being a hypocrite.
1. If you're going to do burnouts, do it on your own time, in secluded areas, so if you fail, you're the only one hurt or *gasp* at a track where *gasp* it's encouraged or *gasp* at a car show with burnout competitions.
2. After seeing that video of a VRT and its weak ass burnout, I'm shocked the cops weren't laughing at you kids more than trying to give you tickets. I've done better burnouts in a 4 speed 1990 Nissan Sentra.
Sad thing is, I didn't make it this year, but I do keep track of what happens at these events because well... I like to know where ****'s going down. So glad the crew I roll with absolutely refuse to stay near the... what I would compare to "white trash" part of the VW community. Because in all essence that's how the children doing burnouts, stealing, and vandalizing are acting.
Still looking forward to coming next year though. Missed my Dragon fix this year
to many people bitching and whining in here like a bunch of small children who didnt get their ****ing mcdonalds toy. Anyone get any more videos or pictures from that epic night, i was the guy on the razor scooter and the loudmouth who was screaming at people to do burnouts or show tits hahahaha
