we used to that with bikes when the back tyre was due for replacement - tee hee - there is a very fine line between plumes of smoke and flames or the tyre just delaminating and sending bits of tread everywhere - childish but fun :)

Is that car being held back by it's front brakes during the burnout? It looks like it. I've seen that on drag cars but not anywhere else.

I used to do that kind of thing when I was 17 in an old 3ltr capri.
To hold the front brakes on, you just apply a bit of pressure to the brake pedal with your left foot while flooring the gas pedal with the right foot. :devil: :devil:
