Hey Sam,

In an auto the Neutral > Drive is REALLY bad for your autobox...... but i guess the choice of whether or not to risk doing it this way depends on the driver.....

Yes it is, I do agree, and it is upto the driver. Thats why i do it with the reverse 1st, coz then the revs are not so high. It is similar to trying to accelerate up hill. The cars momentum is going in reverse and the wheels are powered to go forward, so there is loss of traction.. ie a spin

are we talking about burnouts or wheelspins ?
wheelspins are harmless you are just flooring the gas in D select ...it's like spinning the wheels at 1st gear ...burnouts are rather hard on the tranny ...

i havent driven an auto here but you cant give a car full rev at N ..the rev limiter cuts it off..

This is what I do in my Endy... press brake (with left leg), revv the throttle in D, and leave the brakes, the surge of power gives an excellent burn of rubber

With a manual Fiesta and Ikon though, this used to be a piece of cake
