Semi Rolls Coal Hard With An 8 Wheel Burnout

I have to be honest here, I wasn’t really familiar with the whole “Rolling Coal” thing before I saw this video. According to Wikipedia, Rolling Coal is the practice of intentionally disabling the Clean Burn Programming of a computer controlled diesel engine, so that the vehicle can emit an under-aspirated sooty exhaust that visibly pollutes the air. It also may include the intentional removal of the particulate filter. Practitioners often additionally modify their vehicles by installing smoke switches and smoke stacks.

Most of the time this is reserved for your lifted, piped pickup trucks. Frankly, I don’t see what the big deal is. It all seems a bit dumb. “Let’s make absolute certain our truck won’t pass inspection!” Sounds like a good idea. Usually this practice is accompanied by a gratuitous burnout. Sure, burnouts are cool, but they aren’t exactly special. Okay, so it’s another pickup doing a burn out. Not exactly difficult when you consider how little weight is on the rear wheels.

I say all this to bring you to the below video. It is not just another pickup truck lighting up the rear wheels. No, this is a Semi Truck doing an 8 wheel burnout simply because it can. There is something completely awesome about this. I can’t put my finger on exactly why, it just is.

If rolling coal was a sport, this guy wins the gold.
