Rule #1: Traction control off. It can be done with it on, but is much easier off. Rule #2: High rpm's before shifting. Rule #3: Hard, fast shift. Waste no time. And give it enough gas.
Have fun and be safe!

Geez,

I often have the opposite problem -
Trying to accelerate quickly w/o chirping the tires (don't want to attract too much attention).

Werm, try using your leg to actually release the clutch rather than letting slip out from your foot... :grin:

I did it today! I shifted from first to second at around 5500 and i hit a major chirp. I had the traction control on and right after i chirped the gear the car went lame on me. Im thinking that it may have been the traction control sensing slippage in the rear tires and it cut fuel to control it, either that or i hit the rev limiter, but i was only @ 5500 so it shouldnt have been the rev limiter, either way i think with your alls help i have it down now. Thanks!

If you really want to have a little fun.. (WARNING!!!! DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!)
Find a nice long stretch of road around absolutely nothing at all. A nice big abandoned parking lot will do nicely as well.
First gear.. Clutch in.. TC off. Rev up to about 3500.. Sidestep clutch and floor it.
Just when the tires are about to stop spinning make a hard fast shift into second and floor it again. You'll lay a nice looooong patch of rubber through first and second gear as well.
This has absolutely no value what-so-ever other than to burn about 5000 miles off your rear tires and put a big ol' smile on your face. This is also hard on your clutch, trans and rear end so I wouldn't reccomend leaving every stop light and stop sign in this manner.
Also.. Saftey tip here. If you feel the back end coming around just lay off the gas and push in the clutch and the car will straighten itself out. Or if you're in the parking lot with no light poles around.. just steer WITH it and lay down a couple nice doughnuts.
Above all have a little fun but remember to be safe!!

Has anyone been able to chirp or spin the rear tires from a roll, 20-30 MPH? Even running the engine up to 3500 in first gear, my car can't seem to turn the tires.

I was trying to get next to a monte carlo doing about 25 when he changed lanes to let me beside him. I down shifted hit the gas dumped the clutch and almost went sideways with the TC off and tires just smokin this was way to easy.

I was wondering the same thing. When I first got my car it wouldn't turn the tires over from a first gear punch. I now have 1800 miles and the rear tires will spin slightly on a 10-20 mph punch, just enough to hear, not enough to get sideways or hurt acceleration, just right!! I did however get sideways on a 20mph punch rounding a corner, wasn't really expecting it but it was fun.
