In neutral, rev the engine to the RPM redline. Then shift into DRIVE. This will produce a great spin.

You will need to plan the valuable times that you want to do this, because the car will only stand to do this five to ten times. Then you need a new transmission. If you're doing this to impress girls, make sure they are pretty.

Please note the sarcasm in that reply, shifting the car to drive out of neutral at ANY kind of RPMs from a dead stop will be TERRIBLE for the car. I would recommend you leave the spinning for the people with manuals who can afford new tires and trannys after playing around in the smoke. Repeat -- DO NOT TRY this at home, especially if its daddy's car you are talking about......

I have a mental image right now of an engine whining at high speeds, the shift knob going to D, and a wrenching metal noise as the tranny drops out the bottom of the car......

I have "heard" that if you put the transmission in drive, hold the brake hard with your left foot, get the rpm's up to about 2000 then release the brake quickly at the same time you floor it, you can get some nice spins. On my car if I push the snow chain button I can get some nice take offs, shame there's no disable ASR switch though.

Definitely do not rev the motor in neutral and shift it into drive, that will very quickly destroy your trans. Put your foot lightly on the brake when the car is in drive and gradually increase the revs, simultaneously applying more just enough brake pressure to ensure the car isn't moving and then mash the throttle to the floor at about 1500 rpm and you should be able to break traction. I note you have a diesel though, this works easily in my 560, not sure about your power output though.

On my old 300SD, I could spin them nicely. I would floor the thing slowly with the brake fully depressed (just enough so it would not move). Once the turbo kicked in, the back tired would start to spin faster and faster. Then you can let off and do a nice burnout. Sure to attract the ladies....

Hey, what's up. I'm a member of the mbnz.org forum but decided I need 2 forums to get my daily fun with my car. Actually, putting the car into drive from neutral does not destroy the tranny until you do it more than 10 times. It destroy your CLUTCH. Believe me, I have experience

To spin tires without killed clutch, you do something called power jacking. Put the car into first gear and put down the brakes all the way. Floor the car and slowly release the brake and you will get huge spin. It cuts maybe 1/2 to 1 sec off quarter mile if you do it right if you are racing.

Automatic vehicles do not have a clutch and why do you think the trans can only handle being put into drive at high revs about 10 times? Because each time you are doing that it is gradually destroying the transmission.

Ummmmm, automatic cars DO have clutches, they just don't have a pedal that you press manually. The automatic transmission automatically engages the clutch and changes gears.

This is why the tranny doesn't like it. Imagine a power saw. If it is off (, you can easily put a metal pipe on the blade without anything happening. Now, if the saw is spinning really fast and you put the pipe in it, you will damage the blade. So basically, the tranny must be stopped before putting the pipe (or gear) in it or you will get problems. Don't believe me, try it a couple times and see what happens to your clutch. Power jacking is much safer, you just kill your tires.

I think you are referring to the bands that perform a similar function to a clutch in a manual gearbox.

Bands, clutches, whatever...just say NO to tire spinning!

Leave those stunts for the dragstrip with a race prepared vehicle. Then, when the tranny drops to the ground, it will make it easier to swap out for the next round!

Save that money earmarked for new tires and transmission work for a Kleeman supercharger or something!

And the ladies are NOT impressed...most think it's either utterly childish or a pathetic attempt at drawing attention!

When I used to drive taxi..

That is to say, when I drove somebody elses car a lot. I found that if you put it in drive then punch it exactly when it actually went into gear you could spin the tires, and those taxies had way less power that any diesel.

I also found out what happens if you put it in park at high speed...
