Peeling out

How do you peel out your car like you see it in the movies?
I'm just curious... Do you need to have stick shift to do that??

I am not sure if this link still works. Remove the spaces.

I just tried it. It works. If you have dial-up it will take a long time to download.

Peeling out?

Please post your VIN here so we can all avoid your car when you're done with it.

I have to agree...

But I also have to wonder what tires were on that car. I'm not sure I could break mine loose even if I wanted to, w/ the big, fat, soft, 275/40YR-18 Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3's on the back. I'm sure a 430 could not but wonder about a 500...

Don't believe everything you think

If there is such thing on the W220, put it in dyno mode. This will completely disable the ESP. Not sure if the 4.3 V8 is powerful enough for the big heavy body.

I'm curious as to how its done. Do you just step on gas really hard or rev up the engine in N then put it into gear? How is it done?

Put your big foot on the brake and push hard. Then put your big foot on the gas and push hard, and then call your dealer for a new transmission and engine. Knock yourself out!!! Report back w/ the damages...

You won't (really) damage the engine that badly. It's the tranny I believe.
