How to do a Burnout in a FWD Manual 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: Press The Clutch Pedal
Step 4: Select 1st Gear
Step 5: Floor It! While holding the clutch push the gas pedal to the floor.
Step 6: Dump the clutch and hang on! Make sure your vehicle is pointed in the direction you want to go as there is the possibility of your vehicle launching 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 push the clutch pedal and let off the throttle (gas pedal), then put your foot back on the brake pedal 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.
