    Oh they're quite durable. When I was in high school, I would spin all four tires leaving the parking lot with some regularity. I also once spun it 180 degrees on a wet road. That truck lasted to 180k miles with zero problems.

    I was kinda an idiot.

    Losing traction while accelerating in my Discovery has never been a worry. Is that even possible?! I see this guy has the front end disconnected (the all wheel drive isn't working), but even then I'm not sure my trucks squirrels are big enough.

    While trying to pull our stuck U-haul off the driveway I had 3 wheels spinning (locked rear and open front) before the front passenger shaft let go. That was in low but also on dry pavement. I have been tempted to drop my front shaft and go play in the snow.

    Having a drag sled is cheating, pal. And you don't know fun until you've done drifts in a FWD! That's fun!

    When I was in HS, a friend had an old 80's Ford Escort. We would steal trays from Taco Bell, park the rear wheels on them and lock the e-brake. That was some fun burnout (until the time my idiot friend left his headlights on and the "searchlight effect" attracted a few police officers)

    Hands down though, I'd say this is the worlds best burnout!
