Rotor Burns Until It Explodes – Watch more Funny Videos

Where do I even start with this video? There are so many things that could have ended badly, but fortunately for the guys in the video, nothing went seriously wrong. Until the cast iron rotor exploded, that is, sending red hot shrapnel in all directions and very nearly beheading the cameraman. How would you like to explain to your boss, who owns the garage, why there are chunks of scorched brake rotor embedded in the walls?

Also, you may want to check for a fire extinguisher before you start a “Jackass” style stunt like this. Let me clue you in, Einstein: a hose and water won’t put out flaming liquids such as gasoline, oil or hydraulic fluid. You want a Class B fire extinguisher on hand for the next time you try and burn your place of employment to the ground.

    As the owner of a Deep Cranberry Stratus that recently received an expensive brake job, I’m just glad to see hard evidence in the video that that’s not my car…

    69SportFury: yeah, I think that’s a little more than “bedding in the new pads”.
