addition

could it be because my differential is going out? when i change between drive and reverse the car shifts really hard. you can hear the knock. and it jumps, like it gots hydraulics. not allot, but it jumps.

Ok, why do you neeeeed to burnout.. after you do some burnouts you will not only be not doing burnouts...you won't be driving, wear and tear. You saying you already have a hurting diff and transmission, obv. you aren't pushing power to easily do a burnout. Strain on the whole driveline.... horrible idea on basing mods specifically so you can burnout.

burnouts are super easy once you convert to a manual.

my 79 never would do a burn out either until i transplanted the magical 5 speed into it. then i did a few and lost interest in doing it.

STP oil treatment on the tires. Works every time.:zzzzz:
In all seriousness though, people will sometimes poke at the new guy, to see if he is man enough to stick around, and learn. Your question is a little vague, and leaves too many variables open. If your experience is extensive, tell us what you have checked so far. If not, search words like "tune up", "compression test", and "transmission slippage", and avoid flaming the senior members.:nono: They are just providing a friendly initiation to the harsh world of a car forum.:thumbsup:

OR........................pull out the flame thrower, and have fun.:new_uklia Whatever.
PS: I have been doing burnouts in Supras since 1982. Never gonna stop. When they break, I fix em.
