Question Poll: Do you get thrashes remorse?

Ok, a mate and I were talking tonight about when we give our cars a good workout whether you feel guilty or not. I on the hand always do but he doesn't. For instance, after I left I tried a crap burnout but clutched her a bit too much and now it smells like I've been welding under the car! Oops! So I thought I'd get everyone elses vote on thrashes remorse!

I don't thrash my car.

I drive it hard on occasions, but never thrash it. I don't do burnouts either. Whats the point? Do you really need to know that you are 'the' man by doing a burnout?

Re: Poll: Do you get thrashes remorse?

burnouts are heaps of fun...i normally only do it when my tyres are in need of replacing..just go to archerfield speedway..plus my car is cheap to fix if it breaks down..but hasnt broken down yet..probably only causes $100 of wear and tear to my car if i blow a tyre

Nupe i never thrash my car or any car quite frankly. I do give it abit (when the engine is fully warmed up so no harm is done) and drive very spiritly around a set of nice corners (no use to have XR suspension and sticky SP9000's when one doesn't use it's ability).

I already know that Iím "the man", but once in a while your tribal instincts kick in and you have to mark your territory... hehe. And no I donít get guilty, its good to push the limits once in a while.
