Post e34 530i

Is it possible to spin the wheels on a dry road in a 1993 530i?

Thanks.

Now that is strange, if its an auto rev it to around 3000rpm then foot off the brake and hrd down on the throttle, if its a manual you not letting the clutch out quick enough and putting the gas on, if I can get smoke from my rear tyres on a 7 series auto...........I will add a tarmac road is far better than a concrete one.

why the hell do you want to do a burnout anyway? thats what idiot ricers do. just drive the car man, don't abuse it by powerbraking. you wanna do that, go buy a v6 mustang like all the other jackasses.

sorry end rant

R.I.P fast 6


Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.

Generally under normal circumstances, no automatic e34 will spin the wheels ... with a brakestand maybe, but it's pointless to even try.

Don't have them in AUS... We have EA Ford Falcons for that over here lol

Hey Whitey, I really think you will struggle to do a standstill burnout in your 530i mate. The car is simply to heavy and has an IRS rear which allows the wheels to get more traction on the road. The ABS system will also be trying to stop any wheel slip whilst your foot is on the brake and ALL brakes will be applied when you have your foot on the brake pedal unless you clamp off the rear brake lines.

You need something a bit lighter, bit more nimble and with a bit more power plus a live axle will help!! Something like one of my old cars:
On a closed private road of course!

These things just squat and try to put all that power to the ground until the tranny starts to slip a bit. There are ways around it though...

If you want to know what it goes like then head on down to Whoop Ass Wednesday at the Motorplex and give it a run down the strip...
