Burnout with a Thermal Camera

In this video we’re checking out a burnout with a Honda S2000 and a Flir T1K thermal camera. It’s pretty mesmerizing to watch, as the tread surface of the tire raises from about 19 degrees Celsius to over 160 degrees in less than five seconds.
You can see the heat the tires lay down onto the ground with perfect lines for the tire grooves. The tires themselves are spitting out bits of melted rubber which coats the ground, rear fender, and inside the wheel wells.
