WHEN STARTING A BURNOUT, MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT GEAR.
Place your car in first gear, push the clutch in all the way, and give that baby some gas. As long as you have your clutch in all the way you shouldn’t move until you release it. Rev those RPM’s to ensure your tires are hot so when you release the clutch you should burn a lot of rubber. When you are ready to stop the burnout, take your foot off the accelerator.
BE STRATEGIC ABOUT THE CAR YOU CHOOSE TO DO A BURNOUT IN.
Pick the right car for the perfect burnout. A car with a lot of horsepower will make the burnout process easier to obtain. It is definitely easier to perform a burnout with a manual transmission but it is possible with an automatic.
USE STREET TIRES FOR MORE OF A DRAMATIC EFFECT.
You can definitely do a burnout with regular tires, but if you want to excite a crowd with a lot of smoke and rubber all over the road then street tires are what you want on your car. Street tires are smoother than regular tires and will leave way more smoke in the air than a regular tire.
