Hi everyone, I just got my first VR-4 this year. An upgrade from a 1993 300zx (Non-Turbo). The only thing I liked better about the 300 is the amount of smoke I could break from the tires. Since my engine is being rebuilt as we speak I want to keep this car for a very very long time. I take good care of my cars and don't abuse them. I was wondering if there is any way to smoke up the tires on the VR-4. I have had a few ways in mind but am afraid to screw up the beast again. Those of you that like to make some smoke please let me know how you do it with the AWD system.

floor it, wait till the tach sees 7 grand, and dump the clutch......do it enough and watch your wallet flatten.

I get smoke by going about 70mph in 2nd (in the power band, lots of boost) and then turning really hard. Powersliding will get you some smoke:D A worn asphalt lot or worn cement lot should do you fine.

Like I said I want to keep my car for awhile, but I forgot to mention that I would also like to live for a few more years. Any more Ideas?

I don't think you can do it in a VR4 AWD vehicle without causing some damage to the transmission from what I've read here... should have gotten a NA FWD model and supercharged it... I bet you could spin all you wanted to then. ;)

Like I said, just find an open lot where there's nothing to slide into. The only thing you'll lose is hella tread wear :)

Put on really skinny tires and get some bleach :)

Seriously, why would you want to spin tires on an AWD car? I can do it out of first gear, but I have to turn the steering wheel while slipping the clutch at 4k. The rear spins and then the front pulls it out of the hole.

Sometimes just reving the engine istn't enough around here. With my 300z I always got a few extra races by breaking them babies loose. It's hard enough to find people that want to mess with a VR-4.

If you really wanna break them loose, get some slippery tires and a stronger clutch. My stock clutch cannot handle peeling out.

For getting races, get a BOV and blow off right next to the car you wanna race, and get an intake so your turbos are more pronounced. That'll get the attention of most gear heads. A test pipe should do ya too. The agressive sound will turn heads.
