What are your thoughts of people who try to smoke the tires but don’t have a vehicle capable of pulling it off?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26821points) September 11th, 2014

I am sure everyone has seen the attempt at least once in a lifetime; someone tries to bolt from a green light, stop sign, exit a parking lot, etc. with a great display of horsepower by smoking their tires (burning rubber, peeling out, etc.), but their vehicle just doesn’t have the oomph. When you see it what comes to mind?

Idiot. That’s pretty much sums up my thoughts. I think that about anyone smoking their tyres though. $$$ going up in smoke.

Don’t have a vehicle to pull it off? I have vehicles to pull it off and if my husband did it on the steeet I would think he was an idiot. When is it ever ok on a street? Never. I can’t see any reason to try to accelerate out of a stopped position like that, especially while other cars or people are around.

If I see any car attempting to do it, or actually doing it, I think they are an accident waiting to happen. Getting out on a green as soon as it change is fine (deoending on the intersection) but actually trying to peel out at a really high rate of speed? Like I said, idiot, attention seeker, probably careless on the road in general.

I’d figure they forgot to turn off their electronic traction control system.

My Z-28 could get rubber in the first three gears, but those Goodyear Eagles were about $200 a piece. Only a moron would burn those up.

I’ve never seen that. I must not live in California.

They deserve whatever damage they do to their transmission, suspension, and tires.

Everyone has the god given right to be stupid in his own way.

Regardless of the car, I think they are stupid showoffs with more ego than brains.

What everybody above said I guess.

I only answered this to let @Hypocrisy_Central central know that this officially one of my favorite questions of all time.
