CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.

I once spent some time with a Shelby GT500 on some very worn tires. The traction control remained, at all times, very on. I did burnouts for days.

There was nothing the car’s electronic brain could do to combat the violence of 662 horsepower directed at the rear rubber.

I’ve had similar experiences with a 2014 Corvette one cold day.

I wonder, in light of a recent GT500 burnout-related mishap, if the Shelby is the most burnout-prone vehicle a person can buy stock. You may, however, know a car with a more hammered power/traction ratio.
