Just what the world needs! Another L/P plater that thinks doing burnouts is cool. Don't do em on my street!

On the off chance that you are planning to do them only on purpose built pads and off the roads well that's fine, go right ahead and stuff your car.

Dude if ya gonna do em in the streets, tsk tsk tsk for shame.

MY burnout recipe.
If you wanna do a killer burnout, get your car fitted with some Linelock gear from NOS or OzNOS. They sell these things, I dunno if anyone else does, I havn't looked. Basically, it's a giant servo with alot of power. You hook this up to your rear brake line and whammo, no need to crimp your lines. Now, basically, you leave it turned off when driving around the streets, but when you go to your burnout event, you flick it on, and it'll cut off all braking power to the rear of the car. That way you don't damage your rear brakes...I dunno about the rest of your car! :D

Keeping a good burnout rev is important, as is the "constant smoke, instant smoke, noise and crowd approval". These days in proper events, they'll take points off if you take both your hands off the wheel. This is deemed as "not maintaining control". If you'd got a kickass V8 with only hotdogs on, massive tyres and a good sense of direction, you don't need the maintain control points.

Finally in a comp, if you've been black/red flagged, don't muck around, get off the burnout pad. Annoying the judges is the worst thing you can do, not to mention, they are flagging you for a reason. Also, always have a fire extinguister in the car for the unknown.

You get your Learner's License so you can learn to drive, not put other people in danger with silly antics.

Be careful on the road and leave the crazy stuff for the track or a private paddock if you have access to one - for everyone else's sake as well as your's.

Sorry if I sound harsh but I don't want to get taken out by someone who thinks they are invicible.

And now to help with your question.

Move your right foot over so that you can still press the accelerator, but have plenty of room for the left foot to hit the Stop pedal.

Give her some revs, anything over 3000rpm is nice, depending on car I guess.
Let the clutch out relatively quick, and put the accelerator flat out, and at the same time, jump on the brakes.
If your car has enough grunt, it should be sitting at peak revs pretty soon, and the rubber will be frying.

A good friend of mine entered his car in Summer Nats quite a few years ago. He was on his Lís. He entered a burnout comp with a 351, did a burnout in top gear, with a 2.77 diff, now thatís some nice smoke!!!

Even now with the 4.11 gears, she still puts out some crazzzyyyy smoke.

Oh, and Street Burnouts are bad, M'KAY

hmm.. what sorta burnout techniques are we talking about here?

Drift: While approaching a corner, turn late into the bend. When you absolutely have to turn the wheel, dump the accelerator pedal while the engine is in the torque band (2500rpm - 3800rpm). DO NOT clutch dump it, because then you'll upset the handling, and understeer off the road and into a tree or something. If done right, the tail end should snap out well good, leaving a pair of black snakies on the road. Good to practice this on wet roads, it'll take less effort, less power will be needed. Best results are obtained on a road where a right hand turn takes you up a hill. If you stuff it up, dont take your foot off the accelerator or put the clutch in, steer and idle it out of the slide. Otherwise you'll spin too hard, and smack into a curb or something.

Standstills and all that have been covered, just try and keep an eye on the temperature gauge, cooking an OHC motor isn't much fun.. And dont ride the clutch too much, T5 clutches can be a bit exxy at times.
But Do have fun, Do it in a proper area (somewhere where you're supposed to do them, or where cops have no juristiction), and if you do get caught, the penalties can range from dangerous driving (loss of Ps for 1 year min.) to reckless driving (unsure about that). Depends on how the cop feels I suppose..

we really do not need to be teaching him how to do burnouts.... I somehow don't think that this is intended to be done just on the track.. and line lockers and the likes are illegal.
