Funny you say that, because we got dumped on in the Toronto area and yesterday we were told not to come in to work today because the general contractor supers would not be coming in. They drive from way up HWY 400 which is a write off in blizzards. So here I am home fron work
Speaking of messed up e-brakes; a week ago or so we had an ice storm and my e-brake was on before the storm hit. The next day when I tried to drive the car the e-brake was frozen on!
I was going like 25 or 30 but the left rear tire was turning. It sure made donuts in the parking lot easier though. Hopefully this doesn´t happen again, but if it does do any of u know what I could do to fix it quickly?
BTW, as of this morning Towanda, PA has gone from 0 to 11 inches of snow!
now that i think of it, it might be possible to do donuts going foward in a front wheel drive, but it would be under unusual circumstances. First you would have to have the e-brake on. Next your left rear wheel would need to be on something dry (if you were turning left). Also your right side e-brake cable would have to be unhooked (or broken). Finally the front of the car would have to be on something slippery (ice or snow , duh) I think then maybe you could get the car to spin around. Still I prefer reverse donuts because I love to hear that reverse gear WHINE! (180´s are good too)
i can kinda do donuts if it´s slippery enough, all you gotta try and do is real quick 180´s, give it gas right before you reach the 180 mark and take the brake off, but you gotta be real quick and near perfectly timed. they´re not real donuts persay, but close enough
