don't do what you was told because thats going to f*ck up the transmission over time, since its front wheel drive and an auto all you can really do is engage the E-brake and stomp the gas enough for the tires to start smoking and then let go of the E-brake while still holding the gas down, if you had a stick shift all you had to do was hold the clutch down and floor the gas all the way and the pop the clutch out, same thing with a stick and rear wheel drive to, if its rear wheel drive and an auto you power brake it, thats when you hold the brake (regular brakes not E-brake) and gas long enough to let the tires smoke and then let go of the braketo get a good start for a race, since its an auto, hold the brake as hard as you can and give it just enough gas to where you feel the torque converter load, you'll feel the car lift a little, but don't give it enough gas for the wheels to spin, when you go just let off of the brake while pushin the gas all the way, and there you go

when I was your age, i bought my own car with my own money, a $1200 mustang, bought it with my earned saved money and did not abuse it.I can figure this car was given to you as a gift, why would you disrespect this gift by abusing it, and who pays to have it repaired?Lets try to change our appreciation level, respect this gift from your parents or parent, please.

reving the engine then dropping it in drive is the fastest way to turn your transmission into a paperwieght. It will not help you get a faster start, if your tires are burning out then you arent moving forward as fast as if you just stomped on the gas.
