How to do a Burnout in a FWD Automatic Transmission Vehicle

Step 1: COMPLETELY disable your traction control if your vehicle has it. Traction control is designed to reduce power to wheels that are slipping or losing traction, if you try to do a burnout with your traction control on your vehicle will simply cut the power to the wheels and that means no burnout for you. If you don't know how to disable your traction control just check the forums for your vehicle or do a google search, you'll find the answer in no time!
Step 2: Set your emergency brake: The emergency brake (e-brake, handbrake, etc.) will lock your REAR wheels in place, because this is a front wheel drive vehicle we want to make sure that the rear wheels are holding us in place while we spin the front tires.
Step 3: Shift the vehicle into Drive (you may also select 1st gear if you wish). Now that the rear wheels are locked in place, with your foot on the brake pedal go ahead and put the vehicle in D (drive).
Step 4: Floor it and ENJOY! At this point you're ready to begin your burnout, with the emergency brake still locked in place go ahead and remove your foot from the brake pedal and QUICKLY push the throttle (the gas pedal) all the way to the floor. Make sure that your steering wheel is pointed in the direction you want to go as it's possible for your vehicle to grab traction and launch forward. At this point your tires should be spinning freely and you should officially be doing a BURNOUT! Congratulations!
When you've finished your burnout simply let off the gas pedal, give the tires a second to slow down, then put your foot back on the brake pedal to bring them safely to a stop. Then shift the vehicle back into Park (P) and release the emergency brake.
That's all there is to it, welcome to the tire fryers society!
What If My Vehicle Didn't Do A Burnout?
- Trick: Try putting water on your tires, it will help them lose traction much easier!
- DO NOT USE BLEACH for burnouts! It creates a dangerous gas and actually warms up  your tires and makes them stick!
If the water trick doesn't work then one of two things are going on: Either your vehicle doesn't have enough power to do a burnout, or your traction control is not COMPLETELY disabled.
If your vehicle is under-powered and can't do a burnout then it's time for some bolt-ons! Take a look at our automotive accessories, mufflers and nitrous kits at the top of the page.
