Burnouts from Mater the tow truck’s real-life twin

We like burnouts – especially from vehicles like this.  There’s just something inherently badass about burnouts. Maybe it’s the showmanship, the pure ridiculousness, the excess. No one is really quite sure. All we know is, burnouts are fun to watch. Down in Australia, they have competitions dedicated solely to see who does the best burnouts. Nothing else. No drag racing, no road courses… just a giant skidpad and a bunch of burnouts.


This old tow truck is LS1 powered, and it puts on one hell of a show. Uploader Aussie Matt captures all the action as this truck donates its rear tires to the gods of rubber, fire, and tire smoke. Check out the video:

Have you ever wanted to just blow through a set of tires like this? I know I have.

God bless Ameristralia!


I bet the folks who wrote Disney’s Cars had no plans like this for Larry the Cable Guy’s character Tow Mater.

Maybe they should have let him do some burnouts, too.
