Burnouts must be done POSTHASTE!

So you want to take your 9-5, rev the bollox out of it, slip the clutch, trash a set of front boots by polluting the atmosphere with a whole heap of smoke, and potentially do god knows what other damage!!.

Way to go fella ...

burnouts are very bad for your cv joints:nono; , especially when there is any type of turning because it creates a lot of stress when the wheel is turned. if your are going to burn out, keep it in a straight line.;) I am too poor to burn out, i cant afford new joints. i mean cv joints.

From my experience with FWD burnouts... you're more likely to snap a halfshaft then break the CV joints.
And you really only break halfshafts if you try do roll through the burnout when you are done...

I'm so used to hanging out with VW punks :)

I tried to do this with my last set of tires on the way to get new ones, but people kept getting in my way. :(

Oh yes.

Well, that should be, used to compete, in the good old days when it was offordable:roll:

As has been said, a burnout is just so.........err........pointless.

Unless, you've got very sticky drag slicks and your'e setting yourself up for pre-staging at the strip.......and even then you need a proper car for that.....V8, rwd, 4-figure horsepower....you know what I mean;)

Entirely pointless
It's like farting really loudly in the company of friends. It's rude, it's immature, it's smelly and it's funny, but it serves no purpose.
