Oppsss, done that many times in my old discoII and it was a blast. We would be flying down hill on a snowy trail, put it in natural, and pull the ebrake and hold on. BTW, if you come across an 03 blue HSE7 with winch, run away, and run away hard.

On my D90 every once a while I would pull the ebrake, unlock the center diff, and lock the front to pivot the front end right or left to get a better line on an obstacle. I know I will blow something sometime soon but so far everything held just fine.

As for doing 360, yes Iíve done it just in front of my house. Lock the rear, put in low range and give it hell.

BTW, I love my truck and I never abuse them

No need for the e-brake, just take it OUT of diff lock, cut the wheel hit the gas and turn the wheel the other way, if theres a few inches of wet snow on the ground it works best. This is a tried and proven way, trust me .

No 360s today, the parking lot at work is too small, I might hit a car, a tree, the building or a phone pole.

Sure Mike. We believe you. Who would ever do something like that in a loaned vehicle??

Hey! I have been nice to Jimmy's 90 and it has been nice to me (no breaking down). My 90 on the other hand, well we go back and forth, sometimes I win, sometimes my 90 wins. Why don't you come up here and I can show you how to do it right in your 90?

Hate to bum everybody out, but technically, you are not doing donuts. E-brake pulls don't count, thats a skid, not a donut. Carry on now, cheaters.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

No donuts for me this Blizzard.

Of all the times to have an incomplete head-gasket job going :-(

At least it's running now, just need to take care of some overheating.

EEEwww, Dave has a point on the donuts vs skids. What I am more impressed though is the number of ways people have of making a D90 spin/skid/donut/hydroplane/fly.
So is Mike the correct one above on a "true donut" making process?
