thats a bad idea, atleast down here in Florida...

spinning your tires down here is considered "highway racing" and has an automatic court date, along with large fines, big points, and possible criminal charges(jail time) if it is not your first offence...

i would pay the damn sound ticket and shut my mouth....

dang that sucks.... I would think that spinning your tires in snow would fall under the failure to controll, rather than racing. but it all depends on the cop and his mood at the time.

when i had my wrangler (drag jeep too) a FHP was next to me stopped at a light. he was looking at me when the light turned green i launced it but not to hard and didnt go over the seed limit (55) and he did nothing. not for sound or excessive acceleration.

**** him, im going to court.

It was a citation for 100
Do this BEFORE you go to court if it's not too much work...


- Take a picture of your exhaust...try to make it one long shot so you can see your cat AND muffler in the same shot.

- If you recently had an emissions inspection (with the *new* exhaust on) then bring that.

- Print off the Rusty's add for the exhaust kit you bought, receipt too if you have it.

- Print of the specs of the Flowmaster muffler (from the Flowmaster site).

- Take a few pics of the scene where you "peeled out", or "lost traction" as you should phrase it....(i.e. take pics of the ice/snow by the on ramp...if there is none...well improvise, then take pic). Tell the judge your “vehicle is older and is not equipped with electronic traction control or a mechanical limited slip differential” -- so it is "unpredictable at times in bad weather."

If you show up in court will all of that info and respectfully (i.e. wear a tie) present it to the judge then he will throw it out no prob. If you show up all pissed off and mad at the arse-hole cop that decided to F with you that day, then better bring your check book b/c the judge will stand up for the cop. That’s just how it works.

As of 4/24 the ticket was dismissed.

It was my first ticket so that was the cops excuse for letting it go. I showed him all the flowmaster stuff and he proceded to say that just because they sell it doesn't mean its legal.

whatever, i'm just paranoid whenever i drive by cops now.

When I was 16 and got tickets all the time I had to think that cops were just doing their job. I hear all these stories and Im like wow these cops must not have anything to do ever. In west palm if youre not shooting someone or running people over cops dont care what you do

a couple of nights ago, the cops decided to pull me over because i was "riding the double yellow down the whole street." he then proceeded to illegally search my car after i stated that he should not search it. his reason was, i smell reefer. depending on the judge it would have been thrown out, but lucky for me, he just tossed what i had in the car and gave me a written warning...

as i was walking back to my car, he said to me: "ive seen your jeep around, so watch it."

(i live down the street)

So He didnt find your stash eh?

The only ticket i ever got was for speeding 45 in a 30. I was in a unknown town and there was ALOT of traffic (7 lane road) I was in the wrong lane so i sped up to get were i needed to be....It was my fault.....The cop was a *******, but he only wrote it for 5 over which was good because 15 over is recless driving and a loss of liences. (even tho i was 15 and only had a permit) I just paid it and let it go, There was no point in fighting it, I broke the law and got caught.

Now at almost 18 my insurance is terrable, Like 2 grand a year or maybe a little more. But it will only stay 3 years so it should be off my record soon

he found it, but all that was left at that point was half a bowl pack, so he took the bowl and let me off

edit: which makes him a good guy in my book
