I've never heard of this. Must of been Mom/Dad that told you this. Kind of sounds like that saying parents use. "This powder lets us know if you're peeing in the hot tub, the water will turn blue."

The only thing to consider with heavy rain is if you have a CAI that funnels down below your headlight to steer clear of big puddles. I have had no problem personally.

TGIF....

well, looks to me like if it would worp your frame on wet pavement that it would be worse on dry pavement, lol, but i beleive the whole thing is a scary tale anyways.

wet pavement has less friction obviously meaning less strain on the engine to acheive a burnout or whatever, also not as much stress on the frame as a whole with less friction and what not....

...now on dry pavement there would be alot more strain on the engine to acheive a burnout and therefore (some if any) more stress on the frame, but you never hear of anyone worping a frame on dry pavement do you? (i haven't atleast)

conclusion...b.s.

You can bend the frame if your laying down 600+ HP on dry pavement.

(Im actually seeing quite a few 500-600 HP M3s on the boards, so the number maybe actually higher with the E36's)

You will, however, wear out the suspinsion. "Suspinsion" does not mean shocks. "suspinsion" means shocks, and all moving parts. Bushings, ball joints, swaybar endlinks, etc.

It's certainly not as bad in the rain, and it's actually healthy exorcise in the snow (hehehe)


Just don't drop the clutch or drop the transmission into gear. This acheives nothing but causing problems. There are other ways to get the wheels spinning like crazy WITHOUT tearing up the car.

IE: get the wheels rolling and stomp on gas <- requires power and crappy traction
IE: in a parking lot, get moving really good and turn like a motherfuck (don't e-brake unless you have a manual and pop the clutch in) and start drifting... Look, your doing doughnuts now and you didn't hurt the driveline.

NOTE: YOU NEED AN LSD BEFORE YOU CAN BURN OUT. Otherwise you are just going to ruin one tire and tear up the differential.

All the videos you have seen with $200,000+ cars in them dropping the cluch like they do it every day... if they have enough money to burn on a $200,000+ car, they have enough money to replace the clutch, transmission, differential, and practically everything else.
