5.mounts
all the more reason why one should perform such stunts on rental cars ...
did a burnout on a rainy day ...couldnt help it was too tempting ..got the needle to hit the limiter in 1st ..

Corsa is a gr8 car..the only issue is the space...aswell as the fact that it is smaller in size compard to rivals...in terms of driving..if you have large feet..the footwell is rather cramped..on the other hand the ride is amazing...

I did it on my pulsar180. The disc brake is really solid. But it really affects the tyres badly.

Dude,
Dont abuse your tyres so much ...
I am not sure about avaibility of new tyres for your bike but back in 1997 when i had a YZF600R Thundercat, Tyres were a rare commodity and we had to spend a bomb to get our hands on one ... So please before doing burnouts work out your tyre option ...
Cheers

well we now have a very good availibility of the tires in india....

the other thing is that htses dunlop tires are really very bad...very less grip...i don't know what the problem is but ask any 12r owner or sbk owner and he'll tell you that these tires are very bad....and i've had first hand experience of these...i was leaning on a left hander and the front tire suddenly lost the grip....my body automatically reacted to it and saved a fall...so now i'm not riding it that hard.....

i'm just wating for the runin period to get over or say another 500 miles ....like i will definately change these tires at 1500 miles....

i'll be going for the bridgstone battleaxe bt014's or the new michlin pilot powers...very good tires.....that is the reason i'm doing the burnouts....

i plan to do a super burnout before changing the tires....
