Richard Rawlings Teaches Millennials How To Do Donuts In A Dodge Challenger

Video / Comments

This was the first time they had ever attempted to do donuts in a car.

As we've seen many times, a lot can go wrong at Cars and Coffee events. All too often, drivers who want to show off their car in front of a cheering crowd don't have the necessary skills to handle a performance car at high speed, resulting in disaster. Case in point: just a few weeks ago, a driver lost control of a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat while pulling out of a Cars and Coffee event and slammed into a Silverado pickup, causing it to flip onto its roof.

Clearly, someone needs to teach these millennials how to drive. Enter Fast N' Loud's Richard Rawlings, who challenged his millennial camera crew to do some donuts in a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. None of them have ever done a donut in a car before - what could possibly go wrong?

If you need a recap, the Challenger Hellcat's 6.2-liter supercharged V8 produces 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. All that power is sent to the rear wheels, which is the perfect setup to get the car spinning but keeping it under control takes skill and practice. First up is Domenic, who has only done donuts in the snow. At first, he looks nervous and struggles to keep the car under control. But after learning how to feather the throttle and brake, he puts on an impressive tire-smoking donut display.

Next up is Austin, who seems more confident after burning some rubber in a burnout, but nearly hits a wall when attempting his first donut. His second attempt is more successful.

Sinjin is the third and final millennial to try the donut challenge. Despite having never done it before, he pulls off a very dramatic donut on his first attempt, producing copious amounts of smoke from the tortured tires. For the impressive display, Sinjin was crowned the winner of the challenge. To show how it's done, Rawlings then gets behind the wheel and does multiple donuts, covering the road in burnt rubber and destroying the left-rear tire in the process.
