Something stupid people do with their cars to impress equally stupid people. Its main component, wheelspin, is accomplishable with any automobile, but perhaps it takes a slightly powerful/upgraded machine to sustain it, creating the smoke desired it. No practical purpose other than to waste tire tread and possibly blow the tires. Muscle car enthusiasts strive to achieve this effect at starts of drag races for no real reason.

A person who frequently engages in hilarous, unususal, dangerous or heatbag activities with total disregard for the public's or his/her own safety/well being. People usually act like burnouts to show off when there are many people especially peers watching.
