Here's what ya do. Completely saturate your tire tread with armor-all, then put the car in neutral, floor it so you're bouncing off the rev limiter, then drop it in drive making sure you keep foot planted on the gas. You should get tons of wheel-spin. But the bad part about that little "burnout technique" is that it will shorten the life expectancy of your transmission.

Or you can install a torque strap and a few good engine power-adders.

Gotta love the flex fuel vulcan. I can light them up right off of idle. Quite invigorating sometimes.

So how come you want to do a burn-out?

BTW, if you do put armor-all on tires, make sure you "burn" it all off before driving away. I wouldn't want to hear about you sliding through a turn and crashing or anything.

I also heard of people using bleach instead of armor-all.

And be careful with those neutral bombs, you're just asking for transmission problems if you do those a lot.

Turn the wheel all way to the right or left. Find some wet leaves on the ground. Floor the gas. You should get some pretty decent wheelspin.

Mobius, I now have an '03 FFV bull, and I haven't yet been able to experience what you speak of (like I used to in the D-TEC) . I removed the silencer, and it now breathes noticeably better. Just wondering if you've done any other mods you didn't list,

Crad,
The GL is a 3.8 correct? Should have PLENTY of torque for a good smoky burnout. Let the big dogs dogs eat! I once performed the neutral slam in my former '98 sable D-TEC car with the park brake locked and 3 grown men in the car. I held it in 1st, and by the end of the burnout I couldn't see my rearview mirror. We couldn't breathe, and the hot tires eventually dragged us about 6 feet with the park brake still locked. When we got out laughing our a$$e$ off, we went back to find about a half-cup of tire shred on the road from BOTH tires! I can neither confirm nor deny the presence of alcohol in anyone's system that night at 3AM, but the experience was unforgettable. I say (although not for the tight budgetted) if you're gonna blow you tranny to China, do it with conviction! Save some smoke for me,
Aaron

I believe bleach on your tires works too, but dont quote me on that.

i am quoting you on that


bleach does work, it works VERY well. provides a slick surface to start on, when it gets hot it produces white smoke, and it will heat up your rubber so it burns a little easier. just get a half gallon or so and pour some puddles in front of your tires, roll into the puddles, and mash the go button

Won't bleach be, you know, detrimental to the car paint?
Well all of these instructions are detrimental in one way or another. But bleach really won't do much to the paint.

A 3,8 on a wet road or a nice, smooth asphalt parking lot will do just fine by itself lol... a vulcan though... you need help. And no matter which method you choose, it's going to take lots of milage off your tires. Now, if you're already planning on replacing your tires, then I say go for it
Otherwise, it's just a waste...

Wierd, I burned out a few times at my school. Usually during rainy days but i've done it when it wasnt raining. There is a stop sign at the exit. People sometimes floor it, so i copy after them and it get spin most of the time.
Im usually loving to the car tho

My vulcan will at least squeal the tires just about anytime - on smoother pavement it will actually burn a little without doing anything. If I brake torque it will light em up pretty well. Wet.... well that gets fun.

I wish I could do burnouts, the tires just don't want to spin, I can get alittle bit of spin by torque braking to 2500, then launching. but even then most of the time they don't even chirp, I can just hear them slip alittle bit then it locks up. Z-rated rubber, it grips
