??? WTF ???
Go ahead and do it. What do you think the magazine editors do before they take a run down the track?
Your car can handle it. In fact, if you get it right, the spinning tires can actually be quite smooth. The thing that everyone is forgetting here is that the stress is very brief. It happens for a split second and then the tires are spinning (much less load). This effect is even less noticeable if you have crappy tires. I would *not* suggest attempting burnouts with a set of Hoosier slicks. Not advisable.
Anyway, just go for it. You only live once. If your subframe or diff takes a crap, so be it. You gotta pay to play.

His car is a '92. The point I was trying to make was that the '92 models had really weak sub-frames and were prone to failure. Telling him to go ahead and do peelouts isn't the best advice. And no, it can't take it. I've owned a '92 318 which wasn't that great on power, the rear sub-frame still cracked. It was a design flaw. My point was that if he does it incorrectly, it will seriously damage his car in the long run. Magazine editors don't drive 12 year old used cars down the race track and abuse them. Ever watch Top Gear? You think those cars don't need repairs after they rape the shit out of them? Think again, often shocks, balljoints and rubber bushings all need replacing. If you've got a fat wallet and lots of time to spend at a repair shop, do peels out at every light, who cares?
