So youre giving it power and the tires burn and when you feel them getting traction press the clutch again and then let it out and slam the gas....at least I tihnk thats how its done. Anyway you just keep doing that to keep the tires spinning but the car not moving. Maybe engaging the e-brake might help.

That is still a ridiculous answer.

If you want to burn out in a stick shift, you simply rev it up, and drop the clutch. It couldn't get any simpler. The burnout itself will depend on the power of the car, how high you revved it, and how quickly you dropped the clutch.

I thought he meant if you want to burn out continiously. Ive seen a vid of the srt-4 burning out for 2 minutes straight....its powerful...but not THAT powerful.

Unless it's got 600bhp going through the front wheels...he aint gonna burn out for 2 minutes!......It's gonna either run out of revs, grip the road or blow something up before that time aproaches!.....please correct me if you know something I dont lol

And no car can burn out 'continuously'...unless it's a RWD and you're going round in circles!

I can burn out for 2 minutes straight in a fvcking camry. It requires keeping the RPMs up, having bald tires, and the use of an E-brake. It has nothing to do with power.

And 2 minutes would mean a blown tire. Perhaps you mean 200 feet?

Also, that is what you do if you want to burn out continuously, Floor it, and drop the clutch. No other procedures to go through...
------------
1) On a scale of 1-50, how good is a '98 nissan altima? New transmition, new ignition, basically new everything.
-Decent

2) How do you do burn outs on a fwd car without killing the transmition? (I dont want to do one, just to know )
-Simple hold on the brake, lightly press the gas, and load up the torque converter. This'll lead to a burnout. DO NOT rev it in neutral and drop the clutch, this leads to blown synchros, and an expensive rebuild.

3) What other cool tricks can you do with your car?
-Anything you want to!

4) Perhaps the stupidest question: How do you make the engine roar without speeding across the intersection. I always thought it was in neutral, but am I wrong?
-Neutral/Clutch in

5) Is the parking break good for anything other than parking?
-Breaking traction on the rear tires

To keep your burnout going:

FWD - use the e-brake before starting burnout.

RWD - lightly put your foot on the brake after commencing initial burnout via a heel-n-toe action.

AWD - lol you better have a lot of power.


The amount of time that the burnout lasts depends on the cars power, tyres, and how long the engine can take it.

What difference does it make how much weight the tire can carry? lol
