    Heard there’s a big risk of damaging your bags when you do burnouts. Who knows the ins outs?

    If you are doing burnouts it doesn't matter, what's a few bags and tyres when you see a fully sik skid and make all those black lines. After you blow your tyres just keep on valve bouncing, panel damage and a blown motor are nothing compared to your reputation as a skid legend.

    If it's on a burnout pad, I can't see a problem....The legitimate burnout scene is actually getting very popular these days...Now if it's on the street, that's another story

    That is the problem with a lot of these 'enquiry' posts, only get 20% of the story first up, then the rest is like pulling teeth until the picture becomes clearer.

    True that, I live in an area where every second commodore is sideways so my opinion is a bit biased by my lack of sleep at night from numpties.

    Unless someone specifically says they are going to a track then I assume it's industrial skids filled with people that should have their car crushed and license removed.

    I'm still yet to see proof of all these claimed "private roads" that all the hoons claim they have access to :p

    I agree, there are idiots out there that go stupid on the streets and to me, they need their heads shoved underneath the back tyres, whilst they are spinning.

    Whether or not a thread is directed at it being done on the street, I don't make that assumption. It's probably due to me having a fair few mates and relatives involved in the burnout scene and them telling me how popular they are becoming, especially with the younger generation

    ive got a mate that is top level in the burnouts and those cars have alot of work done to stop it catching on fire, having air bags in the wheel well area is just not a good idea imo for burnout comps, if ur just doing the odd skid here and there without popping the tyres should be fine

    One of my rellies had problems with his Corty catching fire when doing his burnouts. Unfortunately he sold the car minus motor and box

    I also believe Collie holds comps....Not too sure where that is in relation to Kwinana….

    Collie is a couple of hours south of Perth, east of Bunbury.

    How can you call burnouts a sport? Spose it's much the same as those sound system competitions, bogans doen stuff. :D
    Burnout comps are similar to fringe sports like synconised swimming, just without the skill, talent or intellectual capacity to do anything else that requires an ounce of expertise. Don't get me wrong, I'm not being derogatory if all you can do is skids then I'm sure your folks would be proud of you. :rolleyes:

    A lot of the fires are either from the tyres spinning extremely quick, or blow ups.

    If anything, rear tyre fires are more frequent these days, especially amongst the top guys...Mainly the blown motor brigade. If anything, they have relaxed the rules relating to tyre related fires....Once upon a time, the first sign of fire from them, they were stopped....Now they are let go longer.

    That's your opinion, which you are entitled to....From my prospective, I see it as getting people off the street to do it....I have also seen where it has gotten dole bludgers off their asses and not doing drugs, or knocking peoples stuff off and actually gained employment.

    So yes, it maybe bogan like, but if it prevents some low life knocking stuff off, doing drugs and actually do something constructive with their lives, so be it.

    My niece actually sells stickers and T-shirts at burnout competitions, and puts the majority of her profits back into helping handicapped kids....The buyers are fully aware of why she is doing it....So you be the judge, whether they are using their intelligence, or whether they are bogans

    Is there skill involved?....You have to learn how to throw a car around on a pad, without hitting things.....Some of the top fellas are actually doing close to 100 KPH, wheels smoking, when they throw it around and not hit a wall, or a tyre bundle....You be the judge

    Are the 2 tracks mentioned, close to each other, or a little distance? Sorry for the dumb question, but I've never been to W.A, so I have no idea.....I'm only aware of Collie, because one of my rellies went over there and competed in UBC a couple of years back

    A couple of hours apart.

    Kwinana is a suburb of Perth....Collie is a regional town.
