Added in: Lexus

We have seen burnouts in movies and also in real life sometimes. Speaking in petrolhead terms, a burnout is the practice of keeping a vehicle stationary while spinning its wheels. A burnout causes the tires to heat up too much and also emit smoke due to the friction with the ground.

If the burnout is continued for an extended duration, the brakes may also overheat and turn red. This can be avoided by the usage of a line lock, which locks the front brakes independently of the rear ones.

But here, in  this video, you can see the brakes of a Lexus SC catch fire due continuous burnout.

Here is the video footage:
