+1 on that. Find a freshly paved, wet parking lot to try it out on. I'd hate to see anyone damage their drivetrain right off the bat.

If you try to do a burnout on a AWD you will really mess up your drive train.

It's safe to do it in sand or snow, but don't do it too much. AWD systems are there to help the car grip the road, and they do their job well. The drivetrain will take lots of stress if you try to do a burnout.

IT IS SO MUCH FUN TO DO!!! I went out in my buddy's bronco that he was getting rid of because it was gonna cost way more to fix it than just give it up, so we decided to have a little fun :twisted:

At first we just took it off of some dirt jumps and stuff then we decided to go to an empty parking lot... Lets just say that if you go to a walmart and the ground is chewed up with dark black lines comin away somebody had some fun.

AWD cars shouldn't be doing burnouts anyways.

You'll most likely burn your clutch or something else trying to burnout in an AWD car, but if you have enough power, it's doable, and very beautiful to watch.


Bleach sounds interesting. Wouldn't that make you pass out though?

Ammonia makes you pass out, not bleach. Bleach will make you smell like a swimming pool, though.

Wouldn't bleach do bad things to the paint? I thought chlorine (not the gas stuff, the stuff you put in pools) makes you smell like a swimming pool. Chloroform should make people pass out - I don't recommend doing donuts on that stuff.

theres a vid of a guy burning rubber in his audi TT, I think everyone has seen it pretty much, so I'm not gonna post a link, it would just be a hugely redundant repost, but he actually is moving forward, just his wheels are spinning and generating smoke like crazy. Its really cool to see but not something to be done very often because it can, and WILL kill your car

I just peeled out on my driveway with an automatic PT Cruiser (rental car). It left two 3-foot long skid marks on my driveway. I stamped it out with my shoe.

That's actually my second brain fart today. When I was parking the car earlier, my foot went for the "clutch" and caught the brake pedal. Oops...

I don't know, but it's an old-school burnout trick.

4wd means that all 4 wheels are turning at all time, and usually have locked differentials and locked torque displacement. AWD means that (on some cars) only 2 wheels drivet he car, and when extra traction is needed, power can be transfered to the other drive wheels. Alos, they (the computer) can control how much power is applied to each end, or in some ccases, each wheel.

have you guys ever seen a golf cart do a burnout? It was funny, my friend had one, and parked it up against a wall, and floored the gas. The back wheels just kept spinning and spining. It was quite entertaining.
