Yes I have, but it has been here on the Muddy Frontiers of my driveway and dirt/mud road to the blacktop highway. I haven't tried to chirp them on pavement yet. Should I?

Garage
I have on gravel but not on pavement. It's hard on the esp on the 4 wheel drive when it locks up. I have done donuts and a little drifting to see where my slip points are.

Everyday as a child i used to pray to God to give me a jeep. After a couple of years i realized that God did not work that way. So i stole a jeep and asked for HIS forgiveness

I managed to do it on dry pavement once. I even have the CVT. I did it from a stop and putit into first using the slap stick and managed to get a decent squeel out of the front tires before shooting off. And yeah, the electronic stability stuff was all off. I'd just gotten back onto the pavement.

Run from me if you want to live.

Well I'd say realisticly, the 5 speed, a steep grade, and no traction control.

I roast my tires all the time. I have a five speed. Just turn the esp off and get on it and they spin with no problems.

That's probably because the CVT is going from a very low ratio when you are spinning to a higher ratio than needed to keep from spinning. When you are out of your spin you are stuck in a ratio that is to high for the car to have enough power to move until the CVT moves back to a lower ratio. That is why I stick with a good old 5 speed. you know what gear you are in at all times and what kind of throttle and power is needed to move at what speed. In plus they are way more enjoyable and give you way more acceleration than any automatic ever will.
