Lakeville: No, but.. maybe.

I can chirp my tires on command.. but I certainly cannot "liquify" my tires. If your car makes no more power than mine.. then your car is very, very sick.

This is true. I can do a peg leg for 3-4ft.. but I hate those.

I usually won't give it WOT from a light, i'll give just enough to take off good, then at 10mph or so, I will give WOT, then there is nothing but traction. Plus it'* a little easier on my tranny.

Not to mention your tranny takes a beating when doing them, too.
