When burning rubber, doing doughnuts, or drifting, the hardest working element on your car is without a doubt the tire. It spins, it gets hot, and eventually it goes from solid rubber to smelly smoke. And if you spin it long enough, you’ll get a nice, satisfying “pop” when the tire structure lets go and explodes in a most satisfying fashion.
Thanks to modern technology, we now have cameras capable of catching 1,000 frames of action per second or more, or programs that will simulate it. That level of detail was all but unheard of until the past decade, and now this technology allows “amateur” filmmakers to capture an immense amount of action in a very small frame of time.
Watching Vaughn Gittin Jr. do a burnout is definitely entertaining. But watching the amount of explosive energy released from a popping tire? That really makes you take a step back and reevaluate your life. Yup, it really is that cool to watch. Check out how the body work flaps around and little bits of rubber going flying every which way.
Yup, this kind of video is really worth watching more than once. Make sure you watch the whole video and check out the spent tire aftermath at the very end.
