The washer pump won't move anything more viscous than water overly fast or with any pressure.

I have used one before as a transmission cooler flush pump. At best..it'* poor for pumping oil, and don't think about heading up hill.

i would just use the washer fluid, no need to make a 2nd reservoir... washer fluid will assist in lack of traction and also help add a bit of smoke to the show

Well, tell that to the guy who did it. All I'm saying is that since I've heard of other uses for these, I figured I might think up something as well.

Also, as some here have noted, there'* more smoke to be had. I'm aware that it'* hard on the transmission, but this spray could also be used to wet the pavement for others.

Some of my friends did a burnout video for speech class. It was a terrible idea, but there, truly, is an example of the "others" who would be able to use my burnout compound. Also, I'm not implying illegal street burnouts. It'* funny, though, so at least I want to spray something in front of my tires for how funny it would be.
