The lightweight McLaren Senna supercar made a run up the Goodwood hill this weekend with Bruno Senna at the wheel. The nephew of Formula One’s perhaps most iconic driver, former F1 driver in his own right, and 2017 FIA WEC LMP2 world champion, the 34-year-old Senna is also a McLaren factory development driver and…
Yesterday we saw what must be the world’s most used Dodge Viper, with 190,000 well-worn miles on the clock. I think it is fair to say that at least 70 percent of those miles have been burnouts.
Barbie Jeep Racing is perhaps the most pure, good form of four-wheel racing on the planet. Put adults on de-powered kids’ toys, and let gravity do the rest. It usually leads to epic off-road downhill wipe-outs, but at this year’s Hyperfest, Barbie Jeep racers had to stay on Virginia International Raceway’s pavement.
If you thought your Ford Mustang was going to turn heads at the car show, I’m sorry. You brought the wrong car. Don’t even try to to a burnout or you’ll get completely dwarfed by the cloud of tire smoke coming from your great aunt’s Cadillac Fleetwood.
I am trying to be as forthcoming as I can when I say that I don’t know much about what the hell insanity led to this moment. But what I can say with certainty is that someone turned a little Fiat 126 into some sort of raging supermutant that now belches fire and beautiful, beautiful tire smoke.
An Oakland, Maine high school resource officer had to educate a student about identifying satirical news articles after the teen claimed it was perfectly legal for him to stare the officer in the eyes while ripping a burnout after reading about it online.
This little front-wheel-drive Honda isn’t the usual fare you’d see at wild burnout competitions, but it’s capable of making an entire yard disappear into thick, smoky burnout-cloud air! Wow!
Y’all got some of that LSD? The limited-slip differential is perhaps the best drug known to hoon-kind. It’s the trick tech that keeps your burnouts from being sad one-tire fires. Once you drive one, you’re hooked. The Hoonigans released this absurd, nearly 45-minute megacut of their best burnouts, donuts and stunts,…
Try as we might, we just can’t seem to out-hoon the continent that gave us the word “hoon.” Australia opens every year with perhaps the most glorious spectacle in roasted tires: Summernats. This year’s burnout contest winner is pure Jalop bait, too. It’s a Holden ute that’s even louder than it is brown—and it is…
Whether you obsessively follow NASCAR’s every move or not, you have to admit: the post-race burnouts are glorious. There’s just something about the way the V8 engine note reverberates off the grandstands of an oval track that gives me goosebumps every time.
Is there anything nicer than a sweet older gentleman who still has his Porsche 914-6 after 45 years? Well, if that man is Pikes Peak legend, filmmaker and Porsche nut Jeff Zwart, you can bet there’s some burnouts and donuts involved—and we’re not talking about a run out to Krispy Kreme, either.
If this was on an empty road, out in the middle of nowhere somewhere, this would be a comically bonkers thing to do—dangerous, sure, not a good idea, absolutely, but not horrible, because on an empty road, no other people are in real jeopardy. But to do a burnout on a trailer on a busy highway, that’s no longer fun…
At a burnout competition in Alice Springs, Australia, on Sunday, things went very, very wrong, after the car of a driver doing burnouts spewed flaming fuel into the crowd, injuring 14, including one man who was left in critical condition.
The new Honda Civic Type R is a masterpiece of track-ready hot-hatch insanity, but when it comes to simple burnouts, it’s not the best. Even with 2016 Indianapolis 500 winner and ex-Formula One driver Alexander Rossi behind the wheel, the new Civic Type R just didn’t want to smoke the meats.
Meet one of the most insane diesel truck builds we’ve ever seen: Old Smokey F1. In its tastefully patina’d 1949 Ford engine bay lies a beautifully built twin-turbo diesel engine good for 1,233 horsepower at the wheels and 2,000 ft-lbs of torque. Holy crap, that’s a lot of tire-killing insanity.
Let’s face it: the great American V8 engine note is practically our other national anthem. Here’s a classic 1981 Chevrolet Silverado pick-up that’s singing the song of our people and roasting red and blue tires into smoke.
On this day of our Dodge 7/07, we gather here today to celebrate all 707 horsepower of the mighty Hellcat engine along with its V10 friend in the Viper. Let us turn to the book of Toby, verse Keith: “This burnout shall be brought to you courtesy of the red, white and blue.” Amen.
Up until now, if you’ve wanted to smoke your Ford Mustang’s rear tires without roasting your rear brakes, your best bet has been the V8 GT. But now for 2018, Ford is making the Line Lock (“Burnout Mode”) feature standard across the Mustang range. Which is kind of absurd, if you think about it. But in a good way.
There’s no arguing your way out of this one when your friend was live-streaming the evidence. But dude! Sick three-block-long burnout!
