IDIOTS doing dumb stuff...

It looks kind of like a twin, sounds sort of like a twin and is so under powered it can't do a decent big smokin' donut just like a torque dip twin, BUT... honestly, no twin owner would be so bloody stupid to do this, would they???

Here is the story with video.

"When you see the video, you see stopped traffic all the way around that curve and if cars are coming up and not realizing that they are coming to a dead stop, very easily we could have a very serious and tragic outcome,"


Isn't this an occurrence that happens every minute on the highways through TO?


Dumbass move but saying stopped traffic in TO is dangerous is like saying water is wet.

And that is why Toronto police have a problem with modified cars. Even since the Hot Import Nights shows 20-25 years ago when everyone would be ticketed for having an exhaust. It only takes a few a**holes to screw it up for everyone.
Not to mention that now these cars are coming down in price for earlier ones, they are basic street hooning cars.

He must not be rolling on the Michelin Primacies, anybody should be able to at least do donuts in a stock twin.

And, I hope those idiots are locked up. Stopping or blocking traffic is incredibly dangerous.

86es are just the type of car perfect for this type of scene unfortunately.

And this happens almost every day. At least every week, there are 'street takeovers' and 'sideshows' in Southern California. Not surprising it's happening in Toronto or any other major city.

When riding through NorCal with @Sapphireho I actually commented on the number of doughnut marks in the middle of the highways. The practice is obviously extensive there. Some of them were in the strangest places such as the middle of a curve with a shear drop on one side and a rock face on the other.

This isn't a grip issue, primacies won't help here. They have no control - you can see them spin out with basically every attempt to do a donut.

I moved to socal a year ago and saw my first street takeover in OC. Some idiots shut down a busy street on a Fri night just to do some donuts.

Some people are just desperate for attention I guess. . Reminds me of my neighbor's kid with a loud car who apparently can't drive his car out of the neighborhood without repeatedly revving his engine and redlining 1st and 2nd.

I can't even fathom what goes through their minds...only reason I could see somebody doing that is if the freeway collapsed and they were doing donuts to get people to stop?

It's an affordable sports car, sadly that opens it up to almost anyone being able to get behind the wheel. What an absolutely selfish individual, I hope they get their license revoked.

The sad part is that even if they won't say so there are probably at least a couple of hundred people on this very forum that would be willing participants in such activities!
