I use to do burnouts in my 2.5L Contour. All I did was pull the e-brake while my tires where in a little water and it would smoke them until I wanted to stop. It was an Auto, I wouldn't of needed the water if it would of been a manual.

i tried doing burnouts with my 03 tec this past weekend and coudnt get any good wheelspin. we wet the ground, put the e-brake on, and then punched the gas. we got some wheelspin, but not enough to get the tire smoking, it just kept dragging the ass end. i was pretty disapointed by the whole affair. i dont know whta the deal was though, because i know i have done better.

Just out of curiousity, did you turn the traction control off? :)

i dont have the optional traction control. unless they built in an undefeatable TC in all 03 SEL's.

i think it may have been the surface i was on. we were doing the burnouts in my friends driveway, which since the concrete driveway isnt asphalt base doesent have the same petroleum derivatives in it. because i know that i have been able to get way more spinning on asphalt. like i said though, the wheel was spinning, just not enough to start smoking, and the rear end just wouldnt stay put. it did leave some good black lines though :)

1994GreenGL: I've done a couple minor burnouts, but I've never gotten pics... and just so ya know, my '93 is @ 315,000km, never been rebuilt... but I'm gonna be switching to a 3.0L SHO engine, if I can figure out the particulars for the ECM... I've got an ATX, and the 3.0L SHO engine was mated to a 5spd MTX...

*pout*

I think I was the first to do a documented burnout with my silver '92 vulcan... (Thanks Jamal for posting that pic!)

I can barely squeal the tires in my '95 SE 3.8L.. DAMN HIGH ALTITUDE!! I'm moving back to Michigan!

Why does everybody keep talking about E-Brake burn outs in ATX's? Have any of you ever heard of a neutral drop?

*cringes* if you want a tranny to last more than 1K you won't do many neutral drops... that's the worst thing you can do to it next to running without any tranny fluid.

1 Neutral drop has the potential to take 10,000 miles of life off your transmission...That ads up, specially on the our ATX's....and the last time i did a burn out i was going in a circle...can we say GOODBYE to my new halfshaft i replaced 3,000 miles ago <_<
