My grandfather, after hearing tires squealing down the road in front of his house:  "So what are they trying to prove? Stanley Steamers used to be able to burn through a set of tires without even trying!"

...best when already in motion.

Call me a child(seriously, I won't be offended. I know I am) but a rolling burnout for 50 or so feet on the 1-2 shift always tickles my fancy. Heck, a little sideways shimmy doing the left onto a freeway onramp immediately kicks a childish giggle from my face.

You just need more power.  AWD burnouts are fun!

Apropos of the "car so fast it scared you" thread, I still recall riding in a BGN that got squirrely-sideways rolling on the throttle at 80mph, because I-480 is asphalt.

On concrete instead of asphalt, it could accelerate in 2nd gear.

Burnouts are fun in a video game, and fun in real life, but significantly cheaper in the video game.

The only cool burnouts are Caddy 500/472 FWD burnouts.

Something I miss about my Tesla.  It is appreciably better in most ways than my V but a hot lap in the V all loose and smokey makes me giggle.

I worked on formulating another one, along these lines:
Powersliding is to drifting as deer hunting is to war

Never been to war, myself

 

EDIT: this is a SUPER motivating video about powerslide vs drifting

Burnouts are how I used to give my back tire a proper sendoff.
