I know this will sounds horrible, and surely ruin our current sponsorship negotiations with Thrifty Car Rental, but where are all the good rental car abuse videos? It used to be that you found all kinds of them, but in the last year or two they have dwindled horribly. Check out YouTube and you won’t find much new at all. As the guy who religiously, ask Brian, tests the rev limiter in the rental car immediately upon first startup and regularly throughout the rental period, I have come to believe that a certain amount of rage is expected to be directed toward each and every rental car. Daphne swears that I’ve gotten pay back for that on several occasions, but I beg to differ.
I think the poor bastard cleaning cars at the rental car lot is hoping, no begging, for some carnage so he can at least wonder what the hell happened during the rental period. And don’t think that dude hasn’t done an E-Brake slide, burnout, or neutral drop in all the cars you are renting anyway! If they haven’t, then their Professional Rental Car Driver card is being pulled as we speak.

Here are a couple videos of rental car abuse that we approve of.
