    This is not my ride, though it is the same year/make/model (I'm in Tennessee, not California)

    Cool, but I'm personally not a big fan of burnouts. Sure, I love sliding across parking lots and stuff like that, or maybe a little short burnout to show some power, but a long burnout is really pointless.

    Sure, he doesn't care about the tire since he has a new one, but thats putting a lot of stress on the motor and drivetrain.

    But I know it doesn't hurt to do a few, many racers do this to get their tires ready, but in the long term its not helping.

    But cool vid. It also shows how powerful the front brake is! I don't think my drum would hold the engine back!
