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.
DON'T FORGET TO HAVE FUN!
