    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?

    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.

    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.
