Default hmm, just curious

Ok I'm pretty sure this is the right spot to post this, its basically a question about f*ckin around with your Bonneville. Ok my 94 SSEi is FWD right? How do I smoke the tires in a FWD vehicle? All I've ever had was rear wheel drive vehicles so I'm lost.

1. Smoking the tires isn't something that'* considered really good for your differential.
2. Smoking the tires on any SSEi should be very easy.
3. There'* something wrong with yours if you can't.
4. NEVER in a turn. See number 1. Always in a straight line, never a one-wheel wonder.

You should break 'em loose (with traction control off) simply by stabbing the gas, even on dry pavemement. If you can't, stop trying until the car is tuned up/repaired.

Yup, just simply turn off the traction control and pin it. You will get results similar to this -

You're a long way from doing a burnout like you see in my sig, especially on slicks. In case you didn't know, we roll through a water box just before the burnout box to help us break them loose. Slicks and the track are very sticky.

Don't compare what you see at the track to what you should do on the street, HOWEVER, even on street tires in my 95, I can still smoke 'em by skipping the waterbox at the track.

Damn. Too bad this isnt a rear wheel drive vehicle, then I wouldnt be asking these questions :-p. What do you guys think is better all around, front wheel drive or rear wheel drive vehicles?
