Just funny that people are telling me what burning rubber down to the cords is all about, when I was probably doing that when they were still in their Playskool pedal cars.

Sheet Dawg, I was blowing the skins off my Big Wheel so often I had an account at the Firestone store.

You mean blowing the skin off, (singular).

Sometimes you had to get rolling just to clear the smoke out of the passenger compartment.

You didn't have an E-brake on your Big Wheel did you?

It's not a burnout until you can't see the gauge lighting through the smoke.

I was already riding my bike when the Big Wheel came out. We did always try to get the longest skid, though.

Ain't it the truth! When I first dropped the 69 WT 400 in my 77 Formula (summer 84) I was going through tires on a monthly basis. Luckily one of my best friend's father & uncle owned a junk yard so I got tires for $2 each! I did burnouts that were so smokey the people behind me would pull over!
