Awesome... Just complete awesome... I love the fact that no one outside the car tried to stop the guy. Not to mention he didn't even realize there was no sound coming from the tires. Srsly... take your foot off the brake dood.

It's even greater when he's like "Well... That was test 1 for the burnout..." and his buddy goes "Uh.... That wasn't the tires..."

Edit: After watching the video over and over and laughing a whole lot I realized where the guy went wrong...

After the intitial first spin listen closely. You can hear him pop the park brake... What a moron.. Yes... Put your $80k Corvette in PARK and then pop the clutch and try to burn out.... That will work out wonderfully... Some people seriously don't need to own fast cars.

how do you even do that? did he just jam the parking brake on, and hold the car wide open, then toast his clutch? I hope that this was just fake and this idiot didn't actually do that. I thought you hold the normal brakes on, pop the clutch and give it until the wheel spin, let off the brakes an WWWWOOOOOOSSSSSHHHHH with alot of smoke, but i could be wrong.

You pop the clutch and as soon as you lurch forward you ease on the brakes to stop the front tires from rolling but not enough to stop the back tires. He just jammed on the parking brake, grinding his clutch probably down to the bolts and ruining it.

How inept must one be to not be able to tell the difference between burning clutch smell and burning tire smell?
