Nice burnout but the LSD didn't look like it was working too well if you look carefully at the wheels turning direction.

Optical illusion, wheels were never spinning backwards.

That was done for a reason. In order to warm the tyres up for a 1/4 mile run. And it worked. As the car was going sideways deep into 3rd gear prior to that.

I was hoping you were going to say that the rears were already wore out and you were just wanting a good burnout video.

Only a a real quick burnout is necessary for street radials at a drag strip. Also going sideways deep into third is bad thing. All you want to hear is tire chirp when going down the track.

True 'dat. The thing is it didn't really take much life out of the tyres. Maybe the water has something to do with that.

I know the burnout was too long. The driver was deliberatelty over-doing it for the camera. Was a bit of a special occasion Still suprised no-one noticed, but I guess that may be a good thing.
