Default Baby Burnouts

Last night during the Leafs/Sens game I took a look outside and smelt the faint odor of burnt rubber. I was jealous...

Called my buddy Paul to pull himself away from Coaches Corner during the 1st intermission of a scoreless game to take some pics and vids of the Aurora after a week of mechanical care and some new vanity...see if you can figure out what I am talking about

Bear in mind....if the Leafs are playing in the playoffs. No one dares venture out of the house, its like Green Bay when the Packers are playing....Ghost town...so we took full advantage of the barren cul de sac.

Enjoy!

Comments? Post up if you like what you see

Big shout out to willwren for hosting the video 7 star powah!

That was a very good video.
Laid a decent patch, heard the rumble of that sweet V8 exhaust, the launch and the 1-2 shift.
I was impressed at how much time you got out that video.
We need to see more of those.
Wish I had a Video camera.......hmmm maybe I could borrow one and show you how much rubber I can lay down. :P

I really like how the vid came out, we had to sacrifice vid quality for vid quantity.

Thats the first real indication of any asphalt marks plus I still like the stock ride height on the car...no need to lower

Cool Maggers eh?

That was cool Jim! I haven't done burnouts in a while. I use to do them with my Monte Carlo and my LTD II (which could burn rubber in reverse)

Yup, disable ABS, by pulling the ABS fuse.
