Keep your foot out of the gas until the selected gear engages (you'll feel the bump), then just stand on the gas real hard. No brakes involved, and no neutral drops. Neutral drops are REAL hard on trannys and other drive train parts. In my experience, it's a little easier to get a wheel to break loose going forward & shifting into reverse, but, as they say, your results may vary.

I make no guarantees on what's going to break and what's not, but a friend of mine who was an absolute terror on cars had 2 Malibu's ('65 w/283 & '69 w/307) with PG's and the only one that ever broke had a big bubble in the shaft where it broke. But again, we didn't have squat for traction, either.

Just a thought: oiling down the street is dangerous, not to mention quite rude. Same goes for coolant, and bleach can beget rust.

Have to say I'm with the "Reverse Drops - Bad Idea" crowd. I had a friend in highschool make garbage out of his tranny doing that, I think he did it 3 or 4 times until it grenaded.
It's much cooler when you don't need help other than ponies if you ask me
