Burnout resistant bitumen?

johnboy 11 February 2007 24

The Canberra Times has a story on the installation of “burnout-resistant bitumen” in Braddon.

Would any of our hoonish readers (we know you’re out there) like to comment on the difference to your burnouts on this stuff?

And since when were people calling burnouts “wheelies” anyway?

I’m in the snootier area of Logan, but get the occasional anthropological adventure of experiencing Logan Central.

It’s too freakin’ cold, this freakin’ state is addicted to air conditioning!

Ah enjoying it there already hey Jey? Well can’t say we didn’t warn you…

“Boganville is in fact in Tuggeranong.”

Obviously never been to Logan Central, QLD.

Well… That too….

thumper, charnie is quiet because they have ran out of cars to burn.

Charnie has become reasonably quiet these days. It would seem PJs in Tuggeranong is the new bogan capital…

Not just Tuggeranong. The AIS is considering putting up fences because of increased vandalism, and linking that to the increased housing in Bruce.

i resent that. i say it would be closer to Charnie.

I could use some in my street. Many people think Bougainville is in PNG. Boganville is in fact in Tuggeranong.

Hope they install it on the roads inside EPIC!

I think ‘wheelies’ is a much older word than ‘burnouts’. Until fairly recently ‘wheelies’ was by far the preferred word in the UK & Ireland. Don’t know how long burnouts has been in use here but wheelies used to be used here as well… only it was less common when there were fewer people and even fewer cars.

I don’t do burnouts, but I doubt this approach will stop those who do.

This same stuff was laid down two years ago. Many cars are unable to do burnouts, and those that can have there tyres eaten alive. The fact that it has been there for a couple of years shows how effective it is. People who are cashed up enough to pour tens of thousands into a car, don’t care about spending eighty bucks and buying a pair of dodgy tyres to put on the back. You’ll often see cars with sparkling rims on the front, and steel wheels on the back, it justmeans they’ve changed their wheels for the night, putting on the so called “shi**ers”

I went to school with the guy who made the wheelies comment. He often had a way with words…

More tyre damage = more expensive burnout rate which therefore = less burnouts in the future.

Nothing like bringing the cost back to the bogan – I like it.
