How to do a burnout?

I have an 05 GTO with manual transmission. I'm thinking about going to mid-ohio course next weekend and participate in some of the tuner challenges (nothing on the course). So, my question is, how do I do a good burn out? I'm typically trying to NOT spin the tires and haven't ever practiced trying to get them to spin. also, they're having a 'hook-em contest' - anyone know what that is? if anyone's interested, the details are at www.midohio.com.

thanks.

Well, push your clutch in about halfway....and just redline it, redline the hell outta it..... it'll smell funny but it's a mid-length burnout soooooooooo don't worry about the smell...haha ok, you might not want to do that but it's just a suggestion...other than that, I couldn't tell you

1. Turn off your traction control.
2. The car should handle the rest for you.

Okay, I'm being a dork. Sorry. Burning out is an abusive thing by nature, but try to make sure it's your tires taking the abuse, not your clutch. With so much torque on tap, there's no need to drop the clutch at stratospheric revs. Just get the needle up a little higher than you'd ordinarily use for a hard launch, and immediately after you feel like you've got a good, solid engagement, flatten your right foot to the floor. You should pretty much just sit in place, gagging on the fumes of your rapidly deteriorating rear tires.

Install a GTO Brake Control Package, it should work with the 05's as well.
