burnouts

I own a 2003 V6 Auto. Is it harmful to the tranny to do burnouts and brake torques?

Re: burnouts

i'm pretty sure its not the best thing for the tranny to do it...................its probably creating excess heat. and excess heat = bad for tranny.

Re: burnouts

I wouldn't worry about the tranny as much as your rear brakes. Everytime you stand on the brakes to do a burnout, you are eating your rear rotors and pads.

ponyman --- it probably wont' damage your trans, but you'll probably only spin one tire and tear your differential to heck

Re: burnouts

and FYI brake torquing isn't entirely hard on it either, it generates a lot of heat.. but no need to have prolonged brake torquing anyhow..

+ brake torquing = the ford recommended way to test a vehicle under load for misfire/other conditions that occur only under load.. now brake torquing it for a hard launch.. can be harder on it

Re: burnouts

Burnouts = a great deal of fun. Especially in 2nd or 3rd gear. See sig for details.
