Hi i have a DA2 ltd, and it wont pull a burnout on the spot only if i do a u-turn.
The cars a bit slow in low revs would this be why? it has the 3.23 lsd in it i thought it would do one easy. its making a tick noise which i gather is the lifters which im gonna check in the weekend, would this effect preformance?
Doing a burnout isn't really a big deal but its nice to beable to do one.

Engine is probably tired, it'd be close on 20 years old now. When was it last serviced etc? My rebuilt NA can do some pretty decent burnouts but nothing overly exciting, they are a big heavy car..
