1. Get the right ride. For best results you need a rear-wheel drive with manual transmission, a few hundred horses under the hood, cheap tires and a limited slip differential (which allows the wheels to spin at different speeds). You could practice with a rental — not that we'd ever condone such behavior. Ever.
2. Position your tires. While stopped, turn the steering wheel until it's almost fully locked.
3. Rev the engine. In first gear with the clutch in, hit the gas until you get up to about 3,500 rpm.
4. Dump the clutch.Simultaneously remove your left foot from the clutch and jam your right one onto the accelerator until you're just below the red line. This part is the hardest on your car. If you don't do it quickly enough, you can burn out the clutch.
5. Ease off.Before you're too dizzy, gradually lower your left foot onto the brake — with your right foot still on the gas — and you'll slow down the car enough to begin steering. (If you have a front-wheel drive, follow the same steps but drive backward.)
