Default SC400 does burnout until the brakes catch fire

Who is this? SC owner out of TX at TX2K14. Sounds really nice but that was a expensive burnout.



Sorry if this is a 2nd post.

I feel sorry for the car. Look at the kid, Huh! It's time to waste several hundreds or even thousand $. If he did this without anyone watching, he'd potentially blow himself up to pieces due to the fire that's near the fuel lines. Very smart.

Someone smart would have temporarily removed their rear calipers before doing this.

Edit: Although it was funny to get a few texts asking if it was me because my wheels are similar and I live a few hundred miles away.

I knew cross drilled rotors weren't heat resistant!

Looked cool but was a overall pretty dumb thing to do if you ask me, totally agree with what stevechumo said about blowing himself to pieces due to the fuel lines

The kid looks worried and sad. It is sad that SC was getting abused that way.

Judging by how easily he initiated the burnout, he probably had a line lock. Guess it was just too much brake drag?
