skids and burn-outs
« on: February 13, 2011, 09:29:20 PM »
what are the downsides of doing skids e.g wearing out the clutch etc
Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car
Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall
Torque is how far you take the wall with you

i know the tyre thing but like if you do them maybe once a week what is the damage?

Clutch wear, excessive drive train wear, destroying rotors in standstills, wearing out brake pads, popping tyres off the rims when you slide, alot of stress on pretty much all suspension components..

Skids are for kids.

and what if you replace the suspension components with very strong ones?

Then you're going to end up paying through your a$$ just to destroy tyres.

Wasting your paint, ripping off side skirts, over heating your engine, chewing out your clutch, breaking your diff, smashing into things.
Generally carnage on your car if your doing it properly. Ive done plenty, my car looks like a bag of crap at the moment.

static Burnouts are extremely hard on everything in a car. overheating all the fluids in the car etc. its alot of heat with no air flow and often people just rip in to them while there car is still quite cold..

Try avoid sitting on the limiter etc

I think it would have been better if you asked this question in real life instead of on SDU Sam :p

I have never done a standing burnout, line lock etc... ever. I respect my cars too much and personally, doing them is just very.... *yawn*

Doing them is a great way to ruin a car in the long run..... for all the reasons mentioned above!

Remember the old VHELLL VL commy that was around D1 a couple of years ago? The guy that owned that car posted up on the D1NZ forums a while back about the damage drifting had done to his car, a lot more extreme than the odd sneaky smoky in the street obviously but still, adds up. It was something along the lines of...

Half the boot floor missing due to delaminating tires, no rear inner guards left

Front strut towers had collapsed inwards by some huge amount

Passenger side door gap had closed up almost completely and the drivers side had opened a good 10mm

there were others too that i cant recall. Anything like that puts huge stresses on your car, think about it, when you side-step the clutch its not just your driveline thats being shock-loaded to hell and bearing the brunt of it, but hub bearings overheat due to holding the brakes on, brake wear, rear subframe, gearbox crossmember and diff mounting point bushes letting go due to the sudden twisting forces being applied to them, wear on engine mounts, the strain your motor goes through being raped on the limiter then holding high revs under load at a stand-still, reduced life of your gearbox and diff oils, you could go on forever but when you sit down and think about it its more than just your clutch, gearbox, diff and tires that take a hammering, is it really worth it? Skids are the reason the cars we love are so farken expensive these days and why so many of them are just ****boxes :(

Yep, can definitely attest to that, the last car I done a burnout in was my ute for a Fathers Day car show event at our local pub, good fun but the $500 dent in my wallet to replace tires isn't...

The 30's seen one, the second blew my first diff, never again, plus if i get caught, i dont just lose my licence, i lose my job.
