Default grand prix gxp can this car do a burnout?

cross post from another forum, but i thought you folks might be interested.....

oh yeah, these things have traction control dont they?

but yeah, i got some new tires that in my opinion put those potenzas to shame, they are federal ss595 drift tires and cost a little more than half the oems.
i had to plus size the rears from 225/50/18 to 235/50/18 but other than that, smooth sailing.

i showed up at the tire place and they jokingly asked if id want to eliminate the rest of tires behind their shop, i happily agreed and asked if they would film

bouncing off rev limiter = bad, but other than that, pretty damn sweet

ohhhhhh, ok... I was wondering why it was cutting off so early... Those new tires look awesome. Drift tires, eh? Ever consider Mashimoto ZX tires?

That was an awesome burnout! Be safe and keep it to a minimum, though.
