Question Slicks on an AWD car?

Is it possible to use slicks on our scoobies 'cause I know in order for slick to work properly one has to do a burn out to get them sticky but its pretty hard to do a burn out dont you think. Or maybe we dont need slicks?

i don't think they help as much but traction is traction, right?

Man you'd break your axles... I don't think we need slicks at all. I remember a post in the FFI forum that discussed this but not at that sure though...

to heat your slicks on your WRX you need to substitute the burn out for a couple of scandinavian flicks

slicks are just fine for the right conditions (track, strip, not so much on the street)
