Burnouts.

By i8v84t 22 December 2007 129

Hi to all,

I would like to know peoples views on people in their beloved cars doing burnout.

And if people do not like the tyre smokin craze, would they mind if it was done in an enclosed course.

i am trying to get an idea on the views of the community because i am trying to get a regular even happening in canberra much like the burnout comp that is held every wed or fri night at sydneys eastern creek, i figure that if cars are going to be taken away from people who love to smoke um up, then why not let them do it and destroy their cars at an event where the cops will not take their car and they can have some fun, i know alot of people out there who love a good smoke show and would love to have an event to let them do it.

lets take it off the streets and to a venue.

yes, there will be a fee, but whats a fee when you can loose your car and your license if you do it on the streets.

What’s Your opinion?

What about the tree huggers counting the carbon footprint of each burnout?

Whoever the bogan is, who’s doing burnouts in 2 in the morning in the corner outside my room, can they stop it?

…some of us cant sleep easily at night, asshole.

(nor can some of us speak proper english good.)

I cannot imagine why anyone would want to do burnouts but that’s me. We are all different so I can’t see why an enclosure cannot be organised for enthusiasts, but please keep it out of earshot from the suburbs as it would be unfair to inflict this noise on others.

Danman said :

Oh, my parents used to own a VN Caalais when I was younger, and that was an unreliable peice of shit!

My name is Danman and I ride a recumbent.

Insert assumptions here

PS fighting on a forum is like winnign gold at the paralympics – at the end of teh day you are still a retard…

Go the (burnout laying) recumbent bike riding cage fighting bogans.

dont like it – tell someone who cares.

The negative assumed opinions of strangers on a forum means naught to me

So any one who is disabled, no matter what drive & dedication they have, let alone intelegence is nowt but a “retard”? Want to see a real retard? look in the mirror buddy!

There will always be details that need to be considered, but I think it is all too easy to get into a mindset of automatically trying to stop things.

You see this all the time with children. Often the first and almost instinctive response when a child asks to have or do something is, “No!”

Only later, and after much argument back and forth (while we try and defend the indefensible) does it occur to us that maybe we should have thought about it first and spoken after.

There are times when you do need to say ‘no’ to certain things, but they are much less frequent than we suppose.

As a parent I have learned that it is wise to pick your fights – to take a stand and hold your ground on the truly important issues, and otherwise try and identify the real need and craft a workable solution.

I believe that a mindset that asks, “How can this be done?” will result in a more positive outcome for all concerned. People seem to warm much more to those with a desire to be helpful than those who appear to be obstructive.

hi members, i accidentally came across this site and it made my day when i found this thread! i can help all your opinions on this subject! november 9th at wakefield park you can come along and witness real live burnouts in a controlled atmosphere! thats how it should be done! i have put my money where my mouth is and hired the venue! its NSW/ACT vs VIC/TAS in a state vs state shootout! sort of state of origin styled. we have the biggest names appearing. we have the winners of summernats coming along as well. this topic on modified car forums.com has netted over 20000 views in two months! the time for talk is over! we have a “young guns catergory” in an aim to take burnouts to the off-street events! putting up prizemoney is a good attraction! the aftermarket car industry are happy sponsors of these event, as millions gets spent on cars every year! 61 million last year?

Wow this thread has really dragged on! No ones really agreeing with anyone here but I think we can all agree on one thing, this thread is going nowhere fast, so lets move on shall we? I did, 2 days ago now.

“If you can’t handle the truth (that this is a bad idea of interest to a minority, with unavoidably high costs and at some risk and dislocation to the majority), don’t seek it.”

I’ve given you an example of how such a venue could work a number of times. Near to Canberra, that is Wakefield Park. Then there is Sydney’s Eastern Creek and Oran Park. In Queensland there is Willowbank, Mt Cotton. In Victoria you have Winton, Sandown, Philip Island, Calder Park. South Australia has Mallala … and so it goes.

How may times does it need to be highlighted to you that motorsport venues are able to offer viable options for those members of the general public keen to use such a facility before you will accept the truth. Furthermore if we put a stop to any activity that only tickled the fancy of a minority then what sort of a world would that leave us? You really come out with some pearlers don’t you?!

You first complain that nobody would address your points about viability. Then when examples of a similar nature and context have been provided you just ignore them and make the same claims of “unavoidable high costs” blah, blah, blah.

I do not know the specifics of how these motorsport venues deal with the issues of insurance, safety and scrutineering etc. But I do know that they exist and your world has not come to an abrupt end because of this. Surely if any such venues were the political “unexploded bomb” you claim then the doomsayers would be predicting armageddon is but moments away.

Sadly for you, they are not.

Please understand that simply because you do not endorse these activities that that does not make them unfeasible, unenjoyable and that those who do find such events feasible and enjoyable are neither idiots nor cretins as you have called them.

You may well have raised some issues of merit, it’s just a shame your personal disgust of the topic has got in the way of you making a consistent and clear point.

We’re a free and fair society, if there is a viable market for a burnout venue in Canberra and the safety and insurance issues can be addressed satisfactorily, as is currently the case in numerous other instances around Australia, then why on earth can you not accept that fact/possibility and celebrate the differences among our community?

I just don’t get the level of moral outrage posted on these forums when somebody else does something they do not like. Take a chill pill everyone. If someone wants to do something that is legal and meets the relevant government requirements then just let people be. Moreover, simply because one does not approve of any particular behaviour or activity that does not make the other an idiot, a fool, a cretin, a tool or any other name or insult that may wish to be hurled willy nilly.
