so essentially all burnouts with either kill your tranny, your tires, or your breaks....burnouts sound cool

what about donuts? Is that any safer than a burnout or are they the same thing?

You made reference to a torque converter, which implies Automatic Transmission, and dropping the clutch, which implies Manual Transmission. Hate to tell you this, but a car only has one or the other.

Is there not a difference between peeling out and burning out? I thought burning out was standstill with gas and brake in use, and peel out was what you just described?
