Man Attempts Corvette Z06 Burnout, Roasts Clutch Instead

There are after-the-fact clues this Corvette Z06's clutch is doomed: the driver doesn't notice the odor of frying clutch when burning rubber should be there, then pops the trunk to look under the hood. There's much pain in the video. » 12/22/09 1:30pm 12/22/09 1:30pm
