Default Wheel spin

Just wanted to understand how to do a wheel spin. Watched the "Team-Bhp" video posted by GTO & the first shot was Vtech moving with that superb sound. That made me interested to understand and practice wheel spin. Your expert comment please

ps: Searched with few combination & could not find similar thread here.

to a great extent wheel spin will depend on the power of the vehicle in conjunction with the clutch. when the clutch is released in a faster than normal way with RPMs near the redline you can get the wheelspin.

more detailed stuff still coming from our more experienced members.

good to show off to ur babe but bad in all other senses, after all u wud never want to punish ur tyres & engine.

If you have much powerful engine, just leave the clutch faster than normal whilst keeping the revs high. You can see the driving wheels spinning.
Basically you have lost the traction doing do. Less grippy roads like wet road or sandy road will do the trick better.

And of course not good for the car. Tyres, clutch and engine take the beating.
