That would be what is known as the wrong way to do it. NEVER dump the clutch. Always maintain full control of the position of the clutch.

So? You can still release the clutch fast without dumping it. And if you have to redline to do a burnout, car fail!

I have actually never done a burn out in my car, and don't really intend to.

Why would you want to, it just wastes rubber off those fancy Vredestiens.

lol my car is weak. It can barely keep te wheels spinning. I usually rip the handbrake to start the slide then power over in second to keep it going. But hey its a rmr car so its more efficient at putting the power down.

Cm452, if you wanted torque a 4 banger is a bad base really. the fact that there are no overlapping power strokes makes throttle response and torque quite horrible compared with 6 and 8 cylinder cars.

Yes, you Earthlings are a puny race. Here on my planet, you would play the Munchkins in our local production of "The Wizard of Oz"

Wheelhop all the way through 1st sucks


I get that sometimes... Shitty suspension, shitty tires, and just a tiny bit too much torque for those two shitty component sets to hold it all. *SCRRRRRUM, VOOM, VOOM, VOOM, VOOM, VOOM!* as the tires break loose and hop...
