how many miles before burnouts?

How long should you wait before doing a burnout?

Im getting ancy, I have around 650 miles on my car. Wondering if I need to wait till closer to 1500, or if I can get on her a little bit.

Wondering what other people have done.

I did one in the dealership parking lot when I picked the car. The salesman thought it was awsome! I beleive you should break in your car the way your gonna drive it. Plus I'm not positive but I think they are detuned a little for the first 1500 miles or so as a brake in. I felt my car picked up a bit more after that point.

Everytime I picked up a new car I did one out the parking lot and down the block. LOL Its the only proper way in my book. LOL
