ok eayst way to explain what a shift kit physicly does is it makes gear shifts(as in 1-2, 2-3, 3-4 or even when down shifting much quicker and firmer) you wont notice any diffrence going from p-r or r-d etc.
if you want the wheels to spin going from p-d then rev it to about 4000rpm and change to d while your foot is on the acclelertor :)

Yeah, don't rev your motor then slam it from P or N into gear.. If you wanna do a burnout, use the brakes instead. If you've got room, just turn the wheel fully one way and plant your foot down.
