Kind of crazy, the percentage of owners over 45. Wow.
NOT on the Civic forums I can assure you of that.

1200 miles.

18 days.

Finally did a donut.



How long did it take you to do a donut from the time you bought your car?
Sounds like fun. When I lived in the DMV area, I loved doing snow donuts in empty parking lots before the plows cleared everything out.

There is something to be said for wearing out the Primacys sooner than later to justify getting a real set of tires on the car.

Let me think... None. Not once have I done donuts on purpose.

Closest one I can think is, I've spun out in Guff's FR-S at 86EXPO autox. Even then, I didn't hit any cone.

it's fun until the cops try to get you for reckless driving in an empty parking lot.

At some age it may become an involuntary reaction and not as joyful. That's when you avoid mesh bottom chairs.

The one time I spun my FR-S was at the first auto-x with new RE-71A's mounted. Convinced they would be ultimate stick, I attempted a hero chicane exit and spun twice before leaving the course in a cloud of rubber dust with a DNF on the first run.

I never intentionally tried a donut but after watching the @Dadhawk video am in the mood for tacos.

Who doesn't love tacos? Also, it seems a ton of folks are into autocrossing here. I might need to pick up a new hobby...

You get old. You get crotchety. I do think everyone should try one on purpose though. (in an totally empty parking lot about the size of a football field with perfect asphalt)

That's why it was one and done. I mean... two of my neighbors are cops and I know they haven't appreciated me starting my obnoxiously loud civic before six in the morning for the last 10 years I've owned this house... so they don't need another reason lol

Another reason I have no qualms about this. I am afraid that I'll actually find some 17x9s that I like and get some 245s or something silly on this car.

I'm hoping NOT to get to stupid when we get snow next year LOL. The DMV area is great for a few things but clearing roads isn't near that top of that list

I wish we had roundabouts that were three lanes wide. I remember where there used to be some but they're gone now and I don't trust myself on a new platform to try to not die lol. An empty parking lot is another issue entirely lol.
