It shouldn’t be tough to do a burnout. Well, you just press that pedal, hit the brakes and go for it, but if you think a bit about it, there is actually a bit of science involved in there. Now, we are not fond of those crazy ass American burnouts that thrash the car to pieces, kill the tires and eventually wreck the driving layout of the car. Yea, some of you like them probably, but there is not real application to it in the real life at all. Ok, if you go to a track and want to heat up your tires a bit before kicking it up on the track, than OK, you can give it a go a bit, but to show off with such an appalling action is just “rednecky-over-the-top”.
In the video we bring to you, you can see what it looks to have a burnout filmed with infrared and thermal camera. Everything is filmed in Australia and here we can really see how exhausting this is to the car.
That yellow color obviously shows the hot things on the car during the burnout. While we know that the tires are in the first line of defence, it is clear that the engine, exhaust, propshaft, differentials and every other part of the car are equally under stress as the tires themselves. This particular burnout had been done in an Chevrolet overpowered pick-up truck with blown V8 stuck in it. Plumes of smoke shows how dangerous this is, but people love it obviously. We have shown you before that the Australians actually made the biggest burnout in the world just a day before the new year 2015.
