You don't need to do this. It is a scourge for all parties involved, including the engine, the transmission and the mess you're leaving behind until the next heavy rainstorm...don't know who told you that it is important to torture YOUR MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION!---- this whole business is very upsetting to us, those that have to put up with this sh**!

Pull the parking brake, pour oil on the front tires and get a hobby.

Well no s***. brakes are more binding than the power to the wheels. I'm happy for you that you can afford tires, wish I could. Rev it up to about 5,000 rpm and drop it in to gear. Just kidding DON'T DO THAT. You can do donuts, just crank the wheel as far as it will go and hit the gas, and wait for the cops to show up

Now I finally used sarcasm..we were all typing at the same time it seems


Do those doughnuts in reverse and next question will be about replacing the power steering pump.

The three of us that answered you answer most of the questions that appear here, we must be doing something right. Seriously, unless you are a rich kid with a trust fund and a 20 acre paved lot, just don't do it. I absolutely cringed when I saw this.


Burnouts are better in a RWD car.

If you are going to make no sense at all, at least be sensible about it, lesson there!


not easy... fwd has lots of torque steer. u could end up smashing the right wheel if not careful.

put oil on the tires then hit the brake and gas then let off the brake
