OT - New Use for Fast Food Trays

Ok, so i agree this is reckless, and kinda stupid, but im young, so bear with me.

Go to an empty parking lot or a court or something. Find a front wheel drive car with rear e-brake (most FWD's). "Borrow" 2 plastic trays from a fast food place. Place the trays under the back wheels and set the emergency brake really tight. Spin donuts! You have almost 0 traction in the rear, so its swings around effortlessly! After a donut or two, check trays if u don't wanna burn up your rear tires.

Got bored and tried it the other friday night, tried to video tape it but my friend missed the part when he was out of the car, so the tape is worthless.

Anyways, just thought i'd share, maybe give someone something to do this friday nite!

Re: OT - New Use for Fast Food Trays

Once again this is not the worlds brightes idea so Im not say you should go out and do this. After closing (I work at the local McD's) we had some tray with chiped corners you are sapposed to through out the broken loby trays. So we decided to stand on them and get pulled along by a car. I know not the brighst idea but it was after 1am and theres not alot going on then.

Re: OT - New Use for Fast Food Trays

doesn't go along with the whole food tray deal. But down at the beach me and my buddies always go skim boardin, for those of you that dont know what that is, i am sorry, yall are missing out. anyway, get a ski rope, hook it on my truck hitch, and drive next to the surf and skimboard along the beach. what sucks is when the board gets sucked into the sand and you faceplant. not a great feeling.

I feel sorry for the damn fool who forgets to let go!

Re: OT - New Use for Fast Food Trays

My parents grew up in sacramento and I rember them mentioning once how they water skied along some of the irrigation ditches. By tying a rope to the back of a truck or car and driving along the levy road.

Re: OT - New Use for Fast Food Trays

Me and my buddies growing up used to steal food trays from a local fast food joint and body surf with them, the worked great. Cool thing to have when we were too drunk to stand up on our surfboards. Ahh man, thanks for bringing back precious memories!

Re: OT - New Use for Fast Food Trays

I've done that before...learned it on CK5. Done it in a Geo Metro rental, and a minivan...really fun, but the trays don't last long...arby's trays seemed to be the best.

Re: OT - New Use for Fast Food Trays

Gravel Skiing, rural iowa, has TONS of gravel roads. We tie a rope the back of a car or truck, and hold onto a stick on the end, and ski with our shoes. Ive only done it once for like 20 feet.
