Not that I am recommending such activity but....

It helps if you have a tach but not necessary. Hold down the brake to lock up all the wheels. Slowly press the accelerator to get the RPM up. When the motor is revving where you want it, get off the brake and nail the gas. If you RPM was too low, you'll "hook" and not break the tires loose. You'll have to experiment to find the right RPM that will break them loose. If you don't have a tach, listen to the engine and feel how the car lifts.

Of course if you are racing, you would want to get your motor to just below that RPM point so that maximum energy is getting to the road and not spinning the tires.

That RPM point is determined by lots of factors like motor, trans, rear end (gears and open vs. posi), tires and road conditions.

With all that being said, take it easy. Play around like that at the track, not on the road.

put it in first gear(while on the brake).....give it gas to get the tires spinning......after about 5-10sec in first then shift to second gear(while still holding brake)....when you have some good white smoke going(about 30 sec)then let off the brake(still in second gear).....and floor that mother.....should end up with lottts of smoke and a lot of rubber on the road(and qt.panels too)....that is if you don't break anything

I do not understand this. I thought all automotive destruction methods were in the genetic code of all young american males. Cmon man all you have to do is hold the brakes enough to keep the car from rolling and depress the accelerator to the floor. The tires will break loose and the car will/should not moove unless you take your foot out of the gas, or let up on the brake.
You will have to experiment with it all to get it just right. Dont try to do your first burnout in a crowded parking lot or a playground. This is not a thing to experiment with on cruise night. You never know how a certain car will react.

Let us know how the car destruction/tiresmoking goes

Hey you never know! I suppose I should have put in a two-page disclaimer. Don't you just love the car commercials where they show a car zooming around a windy road or skidding sidways for half a mile but with the small print that says "Do not attempt this. Professional diver, closed course."

Or what about the truck commercials that show literally TONS of stuff (even other trucks!) being hauled around but the tiny lettering at the bottom says that you shouldn't (can't) do this.

So...I highly discourage such roudy behavior in today's youth....

....but if your are going to do, follow the valuable suggestions made here.



Have a nice day.

I showed my wife how to do that in my 73 Vega wagon which had a 327. She took it to the store one day, called me a couple hours later that she had a flat tire. I noticed a bunch of rubber on the rear quarter panel and asked about it. She claimed to know nothing about it. She said she spun the tires just a little when she gave it slightly too much gas leaving the the store driveway then things felt funny. I found a black stripe a little ways down the road exiting the store driveway and it was a good 50 feet long

Glad she didnt floor it!
I love that girl!

I knew a Ford owner that poured old trans fluid in front of his rear tires, rolled into it and punched it. Acted just like a Chevy then.

Hi Dave, Nice shot of your car at Fudd's


No, my car was suppose to be Mulsanne blue but that wasnt what I got. Lets say I went on vacation for 2 weeks, left my car with the guy who was doing the paint. Apparently he didnt verify the paint he got and didnt notice the color was different. I dont believe its a GM color.
It's got some pearl in it and kinda changes colors from light to dark depending on the angle and light. I like it tho. Bizilllllion times better then the old paint
