AVOID doing 1 wheel burnouts. Not good for the differential as a few of us including me have found out. I got pics to show too!

From personal experience, I'd say try and stay away from burnouts. They aren't good for the transmission at all.

I second that, their are many diffrent ways to show that your car has alot of power.
Burnouts are fun but if you get carried away than'll you'll pay for it.

No 1 wheels, which means no nailing it around a corner.
Gunning it at the apex of the turn while both fronts are hooked up, well that'* another story.

The cheap and inexpensive way-when romping on the throttle and you notice a wheel starting to break loose, let off the throttle to allow that wheel to bite the road again.

The expensive way, upgrade your differential.

kmalinich nailed it too. Don't go around a corner and nail the throttle. I think that I was doing before my differential finally bit the dust.
