You can't drive one of these cars without doing a burnout every once in a while. It's just not natural.

Besides, it embarrasses the hell out of my 11yr old daughter which makes it that much more fun!

At least he is using the car as it is meant to be driven! These cars are meant to be beat on.

Drive it hard and put it away wet once and awhile, it will do you good.

It is better then dropping a $150K on a car and having to trailer it all over the place. That is more sad and a total waste of a car to see then seeing a car being enjoyed.

Thumbup remember to lift you foot after a while

Just remember it is a Mustang. If you sit there for too long laying rubber you are likely to dig through the bitumen and spit road base gravel until you rear end touches the road and your tires are left spinning in the two pits they have dug out of the road, resulting in lots of noise but no more movement.

Thanks, the video credits outline what the car is, but it's just a cheap Shelby side exit system.

Here's some pics.

OMG! I actually did this with the 70 Mustang in my avatar picture. I had some old drag slicks and just sat there for a good minute or two smoking the old dried out slicks. I ended up leaving two deep gouges in the asphalt and tons of melted tar and asphalt gravel all over my rear quarters and in my wheel wells. The slicks were destroyed and had strip of rubber peeling off the face. I was never able to get all of the tar out of my wheel wells. Maybe someday I'll find the video tape I made doing that.
