What is the deal with making the diesels belch smoke? I mean if it was a part of pulling a load tractor pull style, or racing, or pretty much anything other than just sitting in one spot then I could maybe kinda get it. I realize burnout contests are just as cheesy, but at least they are DOING something ha ha. Though the daisy dukes and the 4x4 school bus are both pretty sweet!

Well I do enjoy some motorsports, so I realize that some people just don't get "it" for certain things. But I would think in that case, since there is no clock or whatever to compete against, the "winner" would be based on crowd response. So, be the last guy in the contest, when everyone is totally trashed and has about a 5 second memory, and you will win. See, easy! I like watching a good rally driver, but I never got the competitiveness of drifting for the same reason. Any motorsport that requires the crowds input to pick a winner just makes me think of monster trucks lol.

Ah, that's why DPFs are mandated... so the rest of us can make up for the 'smoke belching' competitions!

What are those big levers in Ken's car? Easy access E-brake?

Also, how does one steer the rear end of these mud crawlers?
