Yet another reason why FWD burnouts are lame.

Because this can happen:

http://videos.streetfire.net/video/C...how_698897.htm

Seriously, an organized burnout competition and no fire extinguishers nearby? Dumb!

oh and I just noticed that some of these guys are dumping BEER on the car to put out the fire, instead of water. Gimme a break here...

I have poured beer on a grille I was cooking burgers on that was flaming up and the flame got bigger. It was the only thing I had handy, but I had to go get water anyway. IIRC it was mike hard lemonade. It seemed to work for them, but they might as well let that piece burn.

The real irony is; if the car hadn't been chained to the concrete block, he could have just dropped the e-brake and driven away from the fire, since it started from the rubber he left on the pavement.
