Friday FAIL: How to NOT do a Burnout in a Mustang


Bye, bye clutch.

Burnouts can be a really fun and exciting stunt for a power-packed, rear-wheel drive car. They’re even better with American muscle cars as their big V-8s spin those rear tires with ease and create a cloud of smoke.

The first attempt wasn’t so great, so he decided to give it another go, but instead of burning up his rear tires, he smoked his clutch and destroyed it in an incredibly embarrassing public FAIL.
