    Put a little transmission fluid under the tires before you start, itll spin the tires right off the rims...;)

    A line loc is one option, but you could add a make-shift water applicator to the rear wheels from a junk yard windshield washer purchase. Should be cheap, easy, and not too difficult to engineer.

    Not really a burnout, but it was quite easy to spin the tires when it rained and I waited for the green light on an intersection. But the rear diff locked almost immediatelly and stopped the fun. The G80 might not be a best for this kind of fun as it locks up 100% after slippage is sensed.

    Maybe the best way is to find a set of old and hardened tires (summer or all-weather type) and prepare few barrels of water. I have also heard that shifting into 1 turns off traction control, but I can't really tell.

    No our body style didn't have traction control. BTW mine won't even do a burnout without an LSD so I have no idea what to do. Keep a water jug in the back? lol

    When I was in school, a kid extended his windshield washer lines, and plumbed them right above his rear tires. Every time he wanted to smoke the tires he'd hit the windshield washer button! Too funny, but it worked.

    I don't know if you could do this but it is just an idea, maybe disable the rear brakes somehow? and then just sit on the front brakes with the water trick to the rear tires?
