Burnout in a stock 2.0 automatic?

I searched but couldn't find much. Can it even be done?

Maybe if you pull the pull the ebrake, Hold the regular hydrualic break and floor it, while releasing the hrdrualic break, but its extrlemly hard on a car when you do that...or do it on wet roads.

Why do you want to burn out?

An ECU is much more strict on an automaticit doesnt allow you to do things like that due to the fact the car wasnt made for that pretty much a safety measure
you might be able to "chirp" the tire or gun the pedal off of a turn because of weight imbalancing the tires will spin

but basically dont destroy your transmission by doing something it was not designed to do
your ECU on an ATX is designed cut power when necessary to maintain traction

Well, this would hurt the car, but put it in neutral, rev the engine and put it in drive. You will get a little bark, but pay for it latter.

huh? Unless you have traction control it won't do that.
I had couple times tires spinning off the stop sign in the rain and on San Francisco hills, doesn't cut any power.

Burnouts dont make sense. I can chip my tires or spin them under hard acceleration from a stop just about any day with an auto. but again it takes its toll
