    with a several people asking me to do a burnout in Phoenix, all with their iPhones out, I felt peer pressured into this, but I admit it was fun :smile:

    (Can't seem to get the video to embed, I guess it doesn't work with instagram)

    I have to agree with "tophergram" in the instagram comments.

    What are you going to buy for replacement tires? I went with Michelin Pilot Super Sports.

    I think the peer pressure went something like this: 'Do a burnout, Leilani!' ... 'Okay!'

    :)

    You sure it wasn't:

    "Hey, Leilani (pause to take a breath)"
    "Do a burnout? Will do!"

    :)

    Gotta love that torque!

    I replaced my tires last week. They weren't used up. I guess I should have waited to use them up or done some burnouts.

    That's my only complaint with the video. Instagram has cut off the sides to turn the video into a square. We miss out on seeing more of your Model S at the beginning (compared to a 16:9 format) as a result! Perhaps YouTube might work better next time so that we can see the full width of the video. Then you won't have embed issues either. :wink:

    Other than that.... awesome! :biggrin:
