BTW, I sold the grizzly before I really got hurt, do miss it sometimes!

The complaint was about the stipulation that the tire marks be removed. I suggest that there are a lot of people who would find them to be a blight on their neighborhoods and strongly object to any future similar events. What's the argument against loud pipes?

I'm going to guess that anyone who WOULD complain about said skid marks, don't notice stuff like that.

For all the petty shit that you start threads about, you don't understand this issue?

Nice response there, and yes I do understand it. You seem to not understand this is a conversation about it. I am responding to the debate over skid marks on pavement. And I'll add that said marks and the caring of the fact that they are present is totally locale driven. in fact I have never been anywhere I have NOT seen skid marks on the roads. What I mean by locale driven is, those skid marks in say Tennessee would be something to brag and talk about fondly, in San Francisco, they might be an eyesore to most of your residents IF they ever noticed them.

Informative video for the people who think this.


it's a race car, and play car all in one. Remove a restrictor, reprogram the engine, change a few suspension bits, and you have an all in one car.

One of the comments at the end of the article "looks like stuck throttle pedals are still a problem".
