I liked the burnout video. The title says 94 mph burnout, but the car never moved :) LOL

Burnout contest are judged in two ways:
1. Duration of burnout (rarely anyone uses this since people leave their cars on first gear and go on forever)
or
2. The Speed of the speedometer since it moves even though the car is at full stop (this shows the power of the cars and does not kill the tires as much)

I got first place thanks to the 2800 torque converter

I don't understand the fascination with burnouts in the first place. It takes virtually no skill to do them. Not even the standstill 94 mph burnout requires any special skill. In most of the burnout contests I've seen the winner is the one who blows out one of his tires. That's not really a winner, IMO.

True, that's why I said it was because of the torque converter. Most stock SRT8s were doing around 65mph. Also I didn't use my nittos, had the stock tires laying around, and the prizes were temping

Prizes? That changes my opinion. What kind of prizes were offered? I hope the prize is worth at least what a new set of tires would cost. :) LOL
