3rd gear wheelspin, Accent CRDi is a likely candidate. That thing will wheelspin in 2nd gear anywhere above 3000rpm. Buckets of torque.

hehe did that, tyres are fine. the Potenza GIII lives up to its repo. Had i been the stock ZVTS i would have been writing about beef instead of cow, plus a heavily damaged indica

burnouts are always stationary or barely moving ...whereby the car is spinning its drive wheels and not going forward ...lesser the forward motion better the burnout ,more the smoke ...i havent seen a car doing a rolling burnout ..

1. revv high
2. dump the clutch(let go really quickly)
3.when the car starts moving, activate the handbrake
4. smell the burnt rubber.
5. celebrate. you have your burnout.

well you guys are enjoying it so much...sorry to damper your spirits but burnouts/wheelspins also cause extreme "wear and tear" on the following:
1.clutch
2.driveshafts
3.timing belt
4.tires..of course
5.mounts
