rear end bouncing

i took my 93 325i for a spin today and i decided to drop the clutch from 3k rpm and the rear end started kind of bouncing a bit while it was buring out. this was the first time ive done this since ive only had the car for about a month. not sure if its becuase i have almost bald tires. any ideas

Not sure what you mean by bouncing, but it sounds like tire hop.. your tires were just struggling to get some grip.

Dumping the clutch is the worst way to do a burn out, good way to fawk up your tranny.

was it literally hopping? or like grip no grip, grip no grip?

Some cars do get wheel hop during hard acceleration... though i think its mostly from front wheel drive cars.

With your tires, its prob your car getting a lil grip here and there and causing your car to shake, or hop around a bit.

^yeah...I was about to ask that...

how would you burnout without a clutch drop?

The only other way is if your driving something with super torque...like an american...

my 325is that i had used to do that, wasn't a grip no grip thing, because it would happen in the rain, it just started one day i never ended up seeing what it was, but if I would do a burnout in the rain it was a violent hop,

i dunno what to tell you, i mean burnouts arent good for your car regardless. but dumping the clutch doesnt help either.

Wait for rainy/icey days and do them lol
