LOL. I love the death beep we've all heard at the end.

Actually it's a B5 S4 which are pretty cheap now.

Looked like fun to me. Nobody here has ever gone out to do donuts in the snow?

You have to be a real idiot to blow a tranny doing it. . . .
That thing probably has 140K on it, and I have a feeling this guy has probably done plenty of hard starts on dry pavement with that thing.

One more reason not to get a used B5 S4.;)

It's not his "tranny", he probably just blew out his clutch disk. ANd like someone else said, car probably has 140k on it with each owner trashing it...bound to happen sooner or later.

wait a minute. You mean that blowing a clutch can keep a gear from engaging? That doesn't sound right.

If you screw up the "fingers" that release the clutch you will have a hard time disengaging the clutch.

I had that happen on an old car due to a defective clutch, the fingers just didn't have the strength to actuate the clutch any more.

He could have also broken the shift fork, either way I don't think it is going to be cheap to fix!

I don't see how he could blow up anything, given that there was almost zero load on the drivetrain on the slick surfaces.
