|Burnouts are cool, no doubt. Here's how to transform your tires
into plumes of smoke and paint some black lines on the asphalt:
If your car has an automatic transmission, you need to put just enough (only enough) pressure with your left foot on the brake pedal to keep the car stationary, while slowly depressing the throttle with your right foot. Once the rear tires begin to spin slowly, mat the gas and adjust the brake pressure to maintain position.
If you're driving a manual transmission, it's a great deal harder. Press the clutch pedal to the floor with your left foot. Select first gear. Use only the big toe of your right foot on the brake (with the same objective as above), and the heel/side of your right foot on the throttle to bring the revs up (to about 4,000 rpm). Quickly let the clutch off the floor (rear wheels should begin to spin). Roll your right foot to the throttle pedal, while placing your left foot square on the brake. Again, modulate brake pressure to keep the car stationary with the rears spinning.
OK, enough talk, now let's smoke 'em like someone else is paying for the tires...

If you're driving a FWD vehicle, it couldn't be easier to pull off a nice burnout, even without serious horsepower... Just pull the emergency (parking) brake, and "put the pedal to the metal"...
