This Is Why You Don't Use Nitrous For Burnouts


We know what this guy asked Santa for Christmas.

We all love a good burnout. They might not accomplish much, and it is a fairly juvenile sort of fun, but you can’t deny the joy of a good gratuitous display of horsepower. Now, you might be thinking that, since a lot of horsepower makes for a good burnout, and nitrous can make for a lot of horsepower, that nitrous would logically make for some good burnouts. Turns out that it does not, and you should never try.

The following video shows what could happen if you do try, your car might explode. Probably not the desired effect.
