Sometimes, a picture – or a movie – is worth a thousand words. Here’s a little visual vignette to show you what you could do with cars before cars got in the business of countermanding what you wanted them to do.

The “traction control” is countersteering – to compensate for the slip-slide of the rear tires as they lose and regain grip. You don’t “check surroundings for safety.” You look out for cops. And then you do something like this.

Hypothetically, of course.

As OJ used to say!

Look out!

  1. Looks like your Safe-T-Tracks rear end is still in great shape still as both wheels start spinning at the same time. Can you even do this with an EV?

    • Yep. Just not a commercial one. My home built electric trike will easily wheelie, smoke ‘em, and drift. Dangerous as hell of course but fun.

  2. Back when I had a V6 powered station wagon rear drive, I came home by the dirt roads and came to one intersection and i would practice fishtailing around the corner, then twitch the wheel and go from one side of the road to the other by sliding. Great fun.

    • Sought and I found
      A life of makin’ my blood sound
      Do anything for the one I love

      Something profound
      The face of God is in Sensurround
      I’m on the mound
      I make it for my love

      Who you talkin’ to
      Talk to me you
      Sound of music

  3. Got a hill nearby for a set of candy canes? A bit tough on the drivetrain though!

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane! My buddy’s 57 Chev wagon, he put speakers in the back, but via holes that went into the rear wheel wells. Did an awesome burnout with all of us inside then came the choking coughs as the interior filled up with tire smoke via the unsealed speaker holes.
