    How can I do a nice donut with an automatic speed car?

    Hi everybody, after many tries, I have never manage to do some nice donuts with my girlfriend's car. That's an automatic speed 528i BMW.
    I have done everything but the car doesn't want to do a nice donut. Is there someone who knows how to burn tires in an automatic speed car ?????

    I want to see the tires smoke, an many noise. I'm a little bit fool, I know but I like this kind of game. Never do that thing in an open road. Just in a closed parking

    Try taking it out of drive and putting into 2nd

    EDIT: If it has traction control, turn it off.

    uea dont put it in OD 2nd should do it, and brake torque it (hold the brake while giving it throttle causing the torque converter to struggle against the brakes and relese while keeping on the gas, kinda like dropping the clutch on a standard)

    by automatic speed, i assume that you mean an automatic transmission. In that case, you need to pop it in nuetral, rev like sh!t, and then dump it into drive and crank the wheel. You need lots of space.

    Put a big-block engine in it, like a 383, 396, 440, 454 or 455.
    Or, buy an old U.S. muscle car... doing donuts will be almost easier than breathing.

    Find a snow covered parking lot and do it there with almost no grip you are set. (see my post in Racing fourms "Handeling")

    Just to elaborate, I don't think I have the heart to do that to a 15 yr old Buick let alone a 5 series BMW

    reving a car in neutral then poping it in drive is a good way to kill the tranny(altho i have a friend that had a 83 tracel and he did this often and it lasted for a few years before it started grinding ging up hills under moderate throttle, it was his beater so he didnt car) this isnt recomended, the "right" way to do it if there is such a thing is to brake torque it as i described above as there is no actuall metal on metal "slamming" contact and it is comparably better on your tranny. but make no mistake doing any such recless activity will do nothing for the longevity of your car or its mechanicals or tires for that matter

    Do them in reverse !! .... but not if you can't drive in the first place, not all cars will do it well ... but something small with some power will get you a nice loop, I've pulled about a 540 spin with my Tiburon ... but the weight of the engine causes it to drift ....still kinda fun though

    Forgot to mention, this works much better on a wet parking lot.
