Is someone trying to burn out their tyres up by the crematorium? Some racket coming from a wee car.

Apologies... It was me trying to get some heat in my tyres before taking on a Corsa down carnegie avenue.
I've only got a basic Bugatti veyron so I need every advantage I can get.
The Corsa does have white stripes on it so it must be well fast 😏

White stripes on it? That adds at least 200bhp.

I had a wee lad tailgating me the other day and throwing his hands around like a daft wee lassie. He was driving a 3 wheeler. It was one of the greatest moments of my life.

Tailgating. The best way to ensure I obey the speed limit to the letter

The thing is, I was approaching a roundabout to turn right and he’s switched lanes to come up behind me to also turn right and as I was slowing down he was right up my hoop. I looked in the mirror and he was sitting flapping his arms about like a total roaster. It was the highlight of my day. A teenager in a 3 wheeler road raging. Fantastic!

Im up at the crem end and it sounds like its coming from down at the industrial estate or maybe someone trying to drift round the masterton roundabout. Definitely something with a fartbox exhaust and a pop and crackle tune. Bit like what used to happen at the top car park (new tescos) back in the day when I had a real mini,followed by the toon circuit and the occasional blast to Kirkcaldy along the queensferry passage. Plenty of wee heroes kicking about in 1 litre ecoboost fiestas with a fartbox and tune driving like fan dans at the moment. Suppose its the same as back in the day but now they have 140bhp rather than a heady 41bhp and a mcdonalds to park in.

A bunch of them meet outside Scampers in the industrial estate. Mostly guys in their 40s with Astra's 🤦‍♂️

Do 3 wheelers not roll all the time and you just straighten them up and drive off? I remember a Top Gear segment with Jeremy Twatson and that’s pretty much exactly what he did after each corner he came across.

heard this monday as well when walking the dogs before bed. Sounded like was coming from Pitreavie/lloyds bank roundabout, drifting around it. Certainly easy to spot the car going around with no tyre tread.

3 wheelers don't typically topple. The Top Gear segment was an exaggeration.

Ridiculous that the police aren't picking these guys up on their dangerous driving. They must know the common spots. They used to be fairly regular at the old Thomson's car park (now Tesco).

They don't have enough policemen to spare as they are all out in speed trap vans, I drove from Inverkeithing to Ballingry and passed 4.

1st one in the Dales heading towards Crossgates
2nd one on stretch between Crossgates to cowdenbeath
3rd one on A92 between Cowden and Lochgelly
4th one at masonic Hall Glencraig
