    LoL ok...most fun but easiest to loose control of if you don't know what you are doing (and actually even if you do know what you are doing.)
    Although, handbrake drifting is easy in a fwd car..I mastered the 180 ebrake to paralell parking in the bottom section of my driveway when I had a rental jetta wolfsberg 1.8t. (Don't buy a rental..ever) I smacked the rear bumper off the electrical, phone and cable boxes that were @ the bottom of my driveway a few times...neighbors lost cable once...then everyone got unfiltered cable after that (100 chamnels for the price of basic 30...)

    ^yes. Even if you are seasoned veteran, it's very easy to lose control of a powerful rear driver. You stand a much better chance of regaining it, but it's best to never lose control in the first place.

    Fun was doing it when the snow was gone...I had that rental for a few months when my new truck got ran over by a bigger truck while it was parked. It was over 15 grand damage.
    I had a dodge ram hemi for a week too, I parked it on my front lawn in the winter with 1 tire on the big rock...I remember getting ouf of it and my neighbour was laughing and said "another rental I see"
    I miss my old house...it was awesome.

    Lesson of the day:
    If you want good value for your cable service, smack into your house with a car.

    Hahahahahaba

    Correct, I didn't want all black caps which is why I planned on getting the V caps since they are black background but the emblem is fully colored. Also managed to loose 1-2 of the caps while driving
    So as of now it's still sitting at my grandmas since I went to put the donut on an my tire iron is missing -_-
    Got home by driving my grandpas STS (love driving that thing)
    I'm stuck between 2 choices.
    1. Put the donut on until I can buy new tires.
    2. Get some Slime tire repair an run on the current tire.

    Now I know I didn't run over anything an the air leaked around the bead. The tire was in need of air an I neglected it (stupid mistake) I figure I can just put some slime in it to help seal the bead.
    The tire lost the air as I was making a right turn into my grandmas neighborhood. I figure the low pressure plus the tire flexing allowed the tire to move enough that the remaining air escaped.

    The tire could be ruined if it got that low and you continued to drive on it.
    Another case of neglecting something small & costing more in the long run.
