Burnout: Let’s surround your car with concrete and obstacles on 3 sides and give you 100 feet and see how brave you are. Now do it with your buddy's car instead of yours. Obviously this was one of those 'work with what you have' scenarios. A crappy burnout is better than no burnout in R&T’s eyes. For some reason they could not find an open area to do it in? Like an open parking lot instead of that death trap? LOL.
Engine Compartment: Of course it doesn’t look good - this is a test mule / not the production engine compartment.
