When Tires Attack: Burnout competition turns ugly for third-gen Camaro

We're not sure if it's the raw display of power or the smell of burning rubber, but there is just something about a good burnout that puts a smile on our face. Of course, the burnout has to be done right to make us smile. A poorly executed spinning of the rear wheels prompts plenty of indifference, unless the burnout goes so terribly wrong that it proves to be somehow better than even the best burnouts.

Luckily it just so happens that we've found an instance of badder is better. Hit the jump to see what happens when a guy in his third-gen Chevrolet Camaro has the wrong kind of tires to be spinning around on the pavement. We don't want to spoil the climax of this video, but we will tell you that it is absolutely worth watching if you're a big fan of automotive carnage.

I can only assume that someone saw something was wrong since the guy was walking up to the car, I assume to have him stop.

I guess the rim was spinning in the tire... there are black marks on the inside of the rim.

I've seen burnout go back, but there must've been some rust in the fender well for the tire to tear it up like that.

Hope he was planning on putting in wheel tubs!

Probably the funniest thing I've seen all day. He just totalled his toilet of a Camaro by doing a simple burnout; awesome!

I can think of about a hundred far better ways to write off a car than this. I'll never understand what the fascination is with this sort of thing.

+1. I've never seen the appeal of such a stunt. Sitting still, going nowhere, making a lot of smoke and noise and wearing out your tires. Boring.

It's just another way for a Joe Schmuck with a "big ol hankin V8er" to brag to his buddies and co-workers about what a "bad ass mofo" he is and "howmach terk" his "big ol hankin V8er" makes.

It's basically jacking-off with four wheels; you don't know how to really use it so you abuse it.

It's another redneck sport, like Noodling.

This is C&G, we cant call redneck things "redneck" because it offends people. So you should know that only the classiest individuals, with the longest, most flowing mullets who drink their PBR from the finest plastic cups they stole from the Motel 6 drive third gen Camaros and enter burnout competitions.

Because it offends me specifically, right?

Seriously, I'm not here to start anything. For the record, I don't care, you can mention names, my name specifically should you really feel the need to.

It isn't like other members are in the dark about it.

I have an issue with such words being used in a derogatory manner, that's it. Make jokes all you want, but just know there is a line to be crossed. It's the same deal with jokes about other stereotypes. You can make them all you want, you can even make them around a friend of yours who the stereotype may apply to, but you do not go up to that person and start directing derogatory comments towards them.

EDIT: It's almost 5 a.m. I just got off of work and I know I might not be making much sense if any, so if I'm a little incoherent over look it. You'd sound like a crazy asshole too if you worked third shift.

Third shift does bad things to your brain. I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Ok so we can't say Redneck so I'll just say it's one of the games in the Southern Olympics. :deathwatch::deadhorse::rolleyes:

Actually, I was messing with you about it that time.

Like ocnblu said, 3rd shift makes you crazy when you aren't used to it. I'm glad there's a first shift project that's cropped up for me to pull and the rest of the work on the third shift job can be pulled during the day.
