Smile looks like fun Razz

I have to admit I havent tried lifting the back wheels yet...

Still enjoying the drifting Razz
2nd gear, and then accelerate when turning a roundabout Smile
Good fun...

I have found that 3rd you just understeer and if you accelerate before turning the wheel you get the front drivers wheel to go a bit light Razz

By the way, I am a lunatic Very Happy

fair enough Razz

The only emergency stop I have had to do is going up a hill when someone pulled out of a side junction without looking....

Might have to have a play one day though Razz

I think I'd probably have a heart-attack, I've just got to hope that Tony doesn't see it and get any ideas. affraid

Heart attack? No Razz

For me its more of a challenge Smile
A goal if you like...

one of the many:
get the van on 3 wheels - done
lift the back wheels - not done yet
drift the van - done
donut - not done yet
wheel spin into 2nd - done Razz

I do look after the van really, I always let it get warm before playing...

Cant wait to see if it snows this winter Very Happy


And as for letting Tony see it, you had better not let him near youtube then...
there are quite a few mad videos with hijets, rascals, carrys, porters etc Razz

I know it's not a Hijet, but it's still brilliant. Cool

basically, turn the wheels and then drop the clutch with lots of revs Smile

then you need to feather the accelerator and the steering to keep it going...

good fun Smile

I dont know why but since putting proper van tyres on my van, its got more grip, but if you drive like a lunatic, they will let go easier...

which is good fun really Smile

I dont know actually...

I think they are Maxxis budget van tyres (not remoulds/retreads)

And have done 300 miles on them (including being a lunatic...) and you can still just about see the coloured lines on the tread...
