    I'm not quite certain how they are doing it. People do all sorts of incredibly stupid things on Utube. Just because you see people doing it on utube, does NOT mean it's not really bad for the car. Honestly, performing burnouts in an a basically stock WRX/STi, is simply a big display of ignorance. A brief loss of traction is one thing but repeated continuous and sustained loss of traction, under power, (like the conditions in a smokey burnout) will cause severe damage to a WRX/STi.

    So are you just curious or are you actually wanting do try a burnout in a WRX/STi?

    Drifting? Burn-outs? A lot of these questions lately. Don't people take this into consideration before buying an AWD car? Oh wait, I just answered my own question. Next they will want to know how to "chirp" all the gears. Please take the time to read your owners manual (at least the parts that are important to you). P.S. Usually the videos you see on the internet are done by people who don't care what happens to their ( I use the word "their" loosely) cars. Most are just looking for attention. IMHO.

    when you pull the e brake in the STi it disconnects the center diff. Making it possible to do ebrake 180s with out messing stuff up.(back wheels locked, fronts still spinning would be bad for the center diff) For some reason when you pull the ebrake a bit the back wheels will peel out(i would think the fronts would do it but i dont know why). So dont try this in a wrx, it work work. if you have an STI, it will work but i dont know how bad it is for the car.

    fyi its a ****ing awd car, dont peel out, you will just look like a toolshed

    I am getting really old. I should probably check myself in at Shady Pines.
    I remember when the young people all wanted to know how to make their car go faster. Now they all want to look like some moron on YouTube. What the hell has happened to the world? "Screw performance! We want image and a broken car! That gets the chicks!" (Yeah, all of the high school sophomores! Good luck with them!)

    Here is how you do a burnout in a real car.
    1)Roll through water.
    2)Whack the throttle to get the car up on the tire,
    3)then feather it at your predetermined rpm until you have had enough fun.
    Left hand on the wheel and the right hand on the brake slightly warming the rotors.

    If you really have an interest- my guess is you do not have a tire that will go quicker after a burnout. Most street and performance tires will lose traction and performance after a burnout.

    Wow! Great catch on the other posts of this guy!
    A triple plate clutch? Thanks for the info. Since I am not a real clutch guy, I guess I have to go back to school on the performance stuff. I thought I knew, but I guess I don't.
    No clutch 'disc' would ever in the history of the planet be designated as a clutch 'plate.' However a clutch floater is sometimes considered a clutch plate. So does that mean he will have three floaters in his new clutch, making it a four disc clutch? If so, I tend to misunderstand what he is driving that would make the power to need a four disc clutch. Since there are door cars running 5.73 at 254mph in the quarter mile without a four disc clutch, I would be interested to see what he has.
    And since he has logged on seeming himself to be a shop that can sell parts as well as install/tune- he must be far advanced over any of us in knowledge as well as talent and performance.
    Please- come on and inform us all, oh master of the burnout world!
