Won't do a "Burn Out"

I have never done a burn out. I have the V8 A6. I feel like I don't want to trash the tires and have an unnecessary feeling that I am going to scratch something or rock chips. I know it sounds stupid.

Anyone else too protective to do a burn out?

PUT DOWN THE WALKER AND LIGHT EM' UP

Just Joking...

Burnouts are overrated this isn't 1970 anymore ... All powerbreaking does is put a ton of wear on all your parts. My friend has an ugly SRT Challenger , he did 3-4 decent light up's and he needed new brembos after 6k miles ... (1200 USD).

Not worth it.

Yea, I feel ya...mine is my DD so I know in another few thousand miles or so I'm gonna need to replace these 20in tires, and I'd rather not hasten the process. Maybe once or twice.

Eventually, you will cave.

But it's normal to be overprotective.

I was suprised at myself for not needing to. Just knowing that you CAN is better than wondering if the car will do it.

That said, I used launch control twice just to experience it, and I think it was rough on the rear axles with the edge-of-traction wheel hop.

I did do one (and only one) hellacious, crowd-pleasing burn-out at full throttle during a Dream Cruise party, no braking needed.

But that was the only one...and only 9K miles since June-09 so I've been easy on the car.

Why does he need new brembos from doing a burnout? I think you mean break job. Break jobs are for cars that don't have enough power to do a real burnout.

As far as overrated, you must have never been in a car while doing a proper burnout.

Other than chewing up the tires a little you should be fine if you gone past your first oil change. Just don't do dounuts, I've heard lots of horror stories about power steering pumps going out.

Not too protective, just grown up.

I know Domino is fast and can light them up. Domino knows she's fast and can light them up.

Just no point in it.

Knowing you can do a burnout is sufficient. If you want to do one, ask yourself these questions before you do a burnout.
Why do I feel the need to do one? Is it peer pressure? Is it a street race? Is there an audience to impress? Is it my emotions or is it my machismo and libido?
What are the consequences of doing one? Are there cops around? Is it safe? Are there any bystanders or innocent motorists around that could be hurt if I lose control and crash? Is there harm to my drivetrain, brakes and tires? Is my warranty void if I break something? Do I really need to expose additional negative Camaro stereotypes and stigma to the general public who would be offended by a smokey burnout?

I have had just about every male acquaintance beg me to burn out for them. My response each time is "Do you plan on buying me new tires?" Good enough. I've got nothing to prove, I know what the SS is capable of...
