This week’s Tire Shredding Tuesday clip takes a look at a 1978 Lil Red Express Dodge Ram clone doing a big, nasty burnout. Technically, this Ram does two burnouts with the first ending in an embarrassing stall of the engine but the driver makes up for it by finishing the video with a second – even smokier burnout that appears to tear apart at least one of the tires. It you watch carefully around the 55 second mark as the Ram begins to roll forward while smoke billows off of the rear end, there appears to be chunks of rubber flying away from this old school themed Ram pickup.
Sadly, the description for this video explains that the cab rotted out and the guy doing this burnout got rid of it due to the excessive rotting under the driver’s seat – but at least he got great video of an epic burnout before sending his Ram away. Like a real Lil Red Express, this Ram D150 clone is powered by a 360 cubic inch V8 but the lack of exhaust stacks leave this Ram sounding a little under exhausted. Honestly, it sounds like the 360 is laboring to do this nasty burnout but that doesn’t make it any less awesome of a video! Enjoy!
