When he let off the brake and hit the throttle it broke the tires loose and he immediatley got out of it and braked to a stop. He apologized and said let me try that again. Then he torque-braked it to a lesser rpm, released the brake and hit the throttle. It hooked up without a single squeal and launched forward like a missle. It seemed like my eyelids were being peeled back and I couldn't pull my head off the headrest. Boiling tires is for show but horsepower and hooking it up is what can leave a lasting impression.
Wait, I am confused. "Then he torque freaked it to a lesser rpm, released the brake and then hit the throttle" O.o how do you "torque freak" something without being on the throttle?
