ok, yes and no. No burnout is good for the car. It may help to heat tires prior to a drag run, but still not good for the car. I would advise against it. If you really want to, set the e-brake, hold like 4k rpms, and drop the clutch. You should be able to get the front wheels to spin pretty easy. Then release the e-brake and go. You do stand a chance of breaking something when you pop the clutch, like an engine mount or something. There is a possibility of a transmission or axle failure with repeated abuse. What you choose to do is up to you.

Modern quality cars should have 4 wheel discs thus you should be able to do it without touching the e-brake. Also if its a quality car like I'd hope the cobalt is you should be able to drop the clutch without doing any damage except maybe wear the clutch out faster. I use to drop and abuse my clutch in my V6 mustang daily and it never broke anything though the clutch wore out faster. Now I have an auto and miss the fun. E-brakes are garbage I think everyone of my friends's are broken including my own.

If you are truely a noob and wish to know how to do it with regular brake this is how.

1. Heel of right foot on brake

2. Toe of right foot on gas

3. Left foot on clutch

4. Lightly press brake with heel while reving engine with toes

5. Drop clutch as fast as you can obviously in 1st gear

6. Rock right foot back and forth to regulate gas to brake ratio for optimum effect

Also if you have any type of traction control turn it off otherwise it probably won't work.

ok yeah it is a 06 Cobalt SS and it has discs all around, but i was just wondering how to do a standing burnout...i've popped the clutch a couple times but i want to do one badass burnout because there wasnt a lot of smoke and i just want to do one badass stand still burnout without moving forward as much as i did when i popped the clutch.

You can't use the standard "hold the brake and dump the clutch" on a front wheel drive.

This is how I blew my 2nd half shaft.

If you want to do a burnout:

Pull the parking brake up as far as it will go

Rev the engine; high.

Release the clutch, floor it immediately after.

Bounce off the rev limiter, as your tires smoke

Release parking brake.

Yea, I admit I've only used my method on RWD cars, I was guessing it might work for FWD but what do I know I've never owned one. Wonder if you can do donuts in FWD cars???

With the ebrake locked you can spin around in almost PERFECT circles given the car has the power to sling its ass end out cause it sure aint gonna push it out like a rwd car would.... but i still dont know if Id call it a donut.... not in TRUE fashion anyways....

This is known as POWER BRAKING with a manual
