What's the easiest way to smoke my tires
 
I have a 2001 focus se with the spi engine. I have parts that have increased the performance but it's probably not enough. It has 132hp and 147ft/tq what would you guys suggest I install on it besides a turbo to help. It's an automatic. How would you spin a fwd tires would you use the ebrake or foot brake

swap to a manual? i find auto's more difficult to spin the tires with

orrr everytime you spin, make sure your wheels are on oil.

tune?

where did you get those power numbers?

a higher stall torque converter and an LSD (to smoke more than one tire) plus a turbo or super high compression is probably the only way to do it. just doesn't have enough to do it otherwise.

you could probably get a quick spin with a real high stall alone but you would end up doing it at every light.

several things:
the auto trans is the same as the one for the zetec so there could be torque converters and lsds available for it.

there is no turbo kit for the spi but using eBay parts it could be fairly cheap. just research the hell out of them first.

other than that, mount washer fluid jets behind each front tire, Install auxillary washer fluid bottle with motor, fill with oil, wire toggle switch or button on dash and SMOKE [hihi]

I drive the slicks through the water box in 1st gear and just pop the clutch from about 3k to spin the slicks over a time or two in the water to make sure they're wet. I pull forward to the edge of the water, put it in 2nd gear, pull the e-brake, stand on the 2-step, and drop the clutch. Smoke away.

lol can't do either of those....

Joe do you put yours in 1st or drive?

Lunch trays under the rear tires & ebrake it; keep the wheel on the locks and enjoy the donuts!

this is simple.. the best way i learned to smoke the tires on an automatic is when i was 13 i used to steal my mothers v8 cougar while she was asleep put the car in neutral rev the piss out of it and pull the shifter into 1 that will smoke em.. and for some more effect put dish detergent on em..
