We think the blingy red wheels were the giveaway. Video below the fold.

embarrassment punishment enuf?
That’s one long burnout he’s going for! lol Even funnier, that’s my local dragstrip in Englishtown, NJ. It’s 30mins from NYC. Been going there since the 90′s.
I wonder how long it took him to realize that the starlet was just heating up the tires?
if you look real close you can read the GTRs license plate,”IBOUGHTTHISCARBECAUSEIWASHOPINGITWOULDBEPOWERFULENUFTOMAKEUP4MYCOMPLETELACKOFDRIVINGSKILLS”
No matter how much technology or pure awesomeness a car maker puts into there cars, a car is still only as good (or smart) as its driver.
madfaber- I don’t think the driver lacks skills, in fact it looked like he had mad skills, launching that heavy car almost perfectly! No, there’s something else wrong with this guy, something I can’t quite put my finger on…….baybe with a TIME(ing?) I could figure it out.
wow- I really need to go back to grammar school!
bert – gtr has launch control. not rocket science they showed it on top gear….. but seriously that must have been so embarrassing !
Im afraid of starlets too.
I didn’t watch the vid, I bet that Starlet has a Mitsubishi 2.6 Turbo in it.
Komeuppance, very DOUBTFUL. First time I heard of anyone putting a Mitsu engine in a Yota. It more than like has a 1JZ, 2JZ or a 13B rotary.
That GTR driver was a lil ANXIOUS, me thinks. What a clown. lol
