i was watching this show on TLC, seeing is believing, and they had this stunt car driver pulling hand break parallel parks in an svt contour...

but he did this other move, where hes going full reverse, and whips the car around in a 180 and starts going forward... the same direction that he was goin in when he had the car in reverse, all without stopping... HOW the **** can you do that without ruining the car??!??! it was a friggin stick too

If I understand the move correctly than this is a basic car trick.

Put the car in reverse, speed upto 15 - 20mph, yank the wheel to the left. The nose of the car will now move HARD to the right ! This should start the 180 turn. When you are about 135 degrees round yank the wheel back to center position and at the same time shift from reverse into 2nd gear. Hit the throttle hard so that the car pulls itself out of the 180 and starts moving in a straight line again.

The great thing about those stuntdrivers is that they can predict where the car will be after a move like this. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> If a normal person would do this he would be all over the place.


Once on the BBC show Top Gear they showed how to do 2 full 360 turns at speed in a TVR Tuscan, that was awsome.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>That trick is called a reverse-flip...you can choose to use the handbrake or to go without it, but practice doing a 180 degree handbrake turn starting from reverse before you try making the car move after the 180. It will take a little time, but it's a good trick to show off with lol

There is NO way to do this trick without ruining your tranny. I am sure these stunt cars are set up a little different then stock too but they also make enough money to do these tricks and pay for new parts. I would not suggest doing this especially with a Hyundai tranny.

<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>Autobot you CAN do that with a Hyundai...you can do that in ANY car, as long as it's a stick shift. The trick is to clutch in before you turn the wheel to start the 180...you have to clutch in and let the revs drop LOW ENOUGH so that after you complete the 180 transition, you can shift into 1st or 2nd(depends on you) without excessice transmission wear...it doesnt crunch gears when I do this, so give it a try!

note:This information pertains to Elantra '97 which was my previous car, not Toyota Levin which is my current car.

Well I am aware that you can do it in any car but without destroying the tranny I would not bet on that. He asked if he could do it with an AUTOMATIC transmission and I definately would not try it with that in a Hyundai. For that matter I would not do it in a manual either unless you are willing to do transmission work often. These types of moves are harder on the transmission then racing and Hyundai is not known for the greatest transmissions especially when it comes to the automatics. You go ahead and keep doing it if you want but I would rather sink the money into fixing up my car instead of just fixing it.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

I did that once. In my first car, an auto 1980 Toyota Corolla. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

Course, it was in an icy parking lot, but it was still DAMN cool! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

<img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>Someone tried that trick today...he came back with a totalled passenger's side and half his fascia missing. Say Syaonara to another ricer's ride...!

So:pLEASE PRACTICE ONLY IN A SKIDPAN OR IN A LARGE, OPEN AREA WITH NO OBSTRUCTIONS OR PERSONS NEARBY.

This is pretty simple and can be done in any car, manual or automatic. I learned it in an anti-terrorist driving course in the Army. It just takes a little practice.
It won't hurt the transmission. The parts of your car that are going to pay are the tires.

If you think it won't hurt a trany jerking the gears around like that then go right ahead and keep doing it but as most of us already know Hyundai tranies (especially automatics) are week and will not hold up to this type of abuse. Hell some of them don't even hold up to normal daily driving.

I seriously doubt your anti-terrorist training used Hyundais.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

i just think that its amazing that he can whip the car that hard and clutch into forward all in one smooth motion without doing any damage to the car... it was a STOCK SVT contour.... the guy is a serious professional, he runs some stunt driving school

Probably most of you are too young for this to make any sense, but this move was made famous by Burt Reynolds in a movie called Hooper about a stuntman back in early 80's. We used to call them hoopers when we did them years ago.
