I have a santro zip plus which as you know is a front wheel drive but used to do great stuff whn i had 51K kms run tyres on it.... but now with the new alloys and the Turanzas forget it am not even gonna try... But hey a 270km run Verna CRDI did it with ease, felt sad for its owner eventhough he was the guy who urged me to do it.

Wheelspins?? absolutely useless unless to heatup the tyres for racing purpose. I think shedding the tyres for a couple of chick's entertainment sake is not too sensible... Respect your machines fella's!!!

So heres a classic example of respecting ones machine .
Add one part brand new Swift. One part teenager with raging hormones and 5 friends. Make that 5 rather large built friends. (read FAT)
Stuff Into swift , Start off with some burnouts and then proceed to doing multiple donuts; non stop for about a good 15 mins.
What u get is a nicely baked set of tyres and a broken axle.
The neighbours called the cops , the kids are gone and the cars been sitting out with a broken axel the last 4 days . wonder where they went to. daddy mustave been mighty mad too.

Spider gears in open differentials don't like burnouts. Here is a good example. There are many others -- it can get to be a very expensive habit.

When I got my Mustang 5.0 back after it had been stolen one of the engine mounts was broken -- a classic sign of "hole shots" or burnouts. Also, if you try to slam into 2nd gear to chirp the tires it is not uncommon to bend the shifter forks in the transmission. Playing hard costs lots of money...
