The first time we see the DeLorean, but before the first time trip, the doctor remotely drives the car to the edge of the parking lot. After flipping some switches, the rear wheels start to spin, but the car does not move. Once the speedometer reaches a certain point, Doc again flips a switch and the car starts to move.
- Is this possible (in RL)? A car with spinning wheels not moving? What's it called?
- Would this technique actually give the result shown? (Going from a standing start to 88 mph in such a short distance)
