Default Burnout Tips

Hey guys, I am planning to do a burn out on my friend's street (during night of course) and was wondering what is the best way to do one in an automatic. I was thinking of 1) putting the car in neutral, bringing the RPM's up and then shifting it into drive OR 2) I could just powerbrake it in drive. Which one would create the most smoke and longer tire mark down the street? Any help you would be appreciated haha.

I suggest you wait on doing burnouts until you have to pay for your first set of tires out of your own pocket first, then you will think twice about "wanting the most smoke and longest tire mark". That being said....

If you even attempt to put the car in neutral and rev the engine and then drop it into drive, you are doing serious damage to your transmission. You can EASILY destroy your transmission that way.

Powerbraking is your best option.

everyone knows the best way to get a long lasting burnout is to pour buttermilk in front of you tires and lower your tire pressure to 12psi then floor it.

Do you have the v6 pony package? If not, I do believe only one wheel is going to spin, and that v6 auto transmission is not gonna be happy with the stress. My advice, find a spot of sand, put your brake to the floor then try to get your wheel to start spinning from a dead stop.

I read the pony package has a larger front stabilizer bar and the rear rear stabilizer bar of the GT. Not sure about the posi traction, just my assumption.

some early pony package come with tlock, i believe only 06 came standard, in 07, (like my car) tlock was an option, and just because you had ppackage didnt mean you got tloc... im assuming the 08-09 is the same

It was never standard nor was it ever offered as an option on the 4.0
