Same way the Dukes of Hazard make tires screach on dirt!!!



Come to think of it, next time you are watching one of those police chase scenes, listen for the dubbed in screaching there too. They go a bit overboard.

Actually if the dirt is really hard packed you can still screech the tires. Kinda funny, One night my buddy's and I where out beating the crap outta our winter beaters. Going down a dirt road I went to pull a rally manuever around a corner and grabbed the e-brake. THE TIRES SCREECHED! I stopped and we were just kinda like dam all those year of mocking the Dukes!

One of the worst spliced in engine sounds done in a movie has to be during the entire boat chase with the Glastrons in 007 "Live and Let Die."

Funny thing is, it would have been great if they had used the actual engine sounds. Especially the Big V8 in "Cousin Billy Bob's" ratty looking jet boat.

I really like those commercials with some Econo-box haulin ass and sounding like an F-14 with afterburners lit.

I supplied the boat for that movie and could not believe the before and after. There where two 22Ft Boston Whaler Outrages. One in Italy and another in Hollywood. All of the close shots were done on Green Screen with the Hollywood boat after the Italy shots were finished. It was fun to see a movie I was part of it. I just wish the S.O.B's would finally pay?

69 Charger must be the new RSX cousin...We can make those tires screach on anything, and can get a lot of air underneath those tires...the last time out, new tracks, we had the back end about 2' up, kinda sucky but on older tracks the thing flies!
