To all those that want to smoke tires - go RENT a car for the day! IMO, any car with over 100k miles is not a good candidate to abuse.

well as I predicted my freshly rebuilt tranny is already shifting REALLY hard I mean downshifts are like hitting potholes, I am making my first mod (belive me I have already started a savings for this) a beefed up tranny looking onto a level ten.

I dont know why everyone is concerned with smoking their Legend tires...I guess I was concerned with this when i was younger. But when I drive my car, I do spin/squeel the tires on occasion on a fast launch, especially when I am jumping out into traffic quickly. This is not to proof anything, just the occasional result of hard (possibly overzealous) driving. It is certainly not hard to spin the tires all the way through 1st, and chirp 2nd, even with 17's and brand new tires. This is in my 90 Sedan with 198,000 miles.

CaLM down, dawg. I've done it once. We all know it's bad for the tanny. Not like we do that every time we want to launch our car.

yea ive done it before too..but it was more like dropping at 3K and i still got satisfied results. its just revving till redline isnt good in the first place..and then slapping it to drive also....now that jus kills it.

well as for it being easy too spin tires I disagree, my little stunt maybe got a foot and a half of stripe, now that does not compare with my mothers old elky (yeah I know two different animals) which burned em for about a block, man I loved that car. and I will have you know Acuraguy, this is THE first time I have ever tranny dropped above 4k, on any car specially my baby.
