I went traysliding this last weekend and went through 4 trays in seconds so we bought 2 metals sheets from lowes and the taurus burned through those 2 and the metal is shaped like the tire tread.

Pics of TIRE SMOKING ACTION are Here
We also video taped it too and i will post that very soon

Ok, I guess I live under a rock, or maybe just too old, or maybe just an overall idiot, but....well, here it goes....what is Traysliding?...

Oh, ok kinda like the "skidpad" or the "caster car" training we did in the academy. "caster car" was a Crown Vic that had 4 independently controled caster wheels that you could raise and lower with hydraulics, that would lift. So you could lift the car's left front wheel off the ground, or lift the front end or the back end, used for slide control training, that was alot of fun.

Nah, we aren't fortunate to have LSD on our Tauruses. My friend has it on his Sentra SE-R, and he actually makes enough power to need it. Arkansho also has a LSD installed in his monster.

I didn't think so, I thought I heard that the only ones that had them had it added on

about as much as I hate barbara streisand (a whole lot!) Hopefully my upcoming chip will help me to like my transmission more. However, my hate for Sreisand will continue to be unending.
