Its not as bad to do a burn-out if you DONT use the brakes. That puts incredible stress on the trans components, such as gears, differential, and torque converter, and a mess of other fun stuff! Also, you could pop a CV Joint. Those cost a few dollars and aren't friendly when they break. Chances are you'll blow something else up in the process of blowing a CV. Take it from someone who had that experience (while leaving the shop that had just replaced my CV joint)

Also, stay AWAY from one wheel / turning corner burnouts. That will blow your diff real fast.

If you want to do a burnout, try using the Parking Brake and do it on something you think both tires will slip easily.

Um...we don't have differentials! But, good advice otherwise.
