Definantlty putting a lot strain on the auto box. I have seen other methods where by you hold on the brakes slightly while accelerating, seems to light up the rears. Both methods not good for your car though.

no, that's pretty much the fastest way to destroy your transmission!

brake launching however i hear is perfectly fine and the best way to launch an auto. (holding the brakes and revving, wont really rev very high before it starts moving)

i,m no expert but, i would not recommend doing that, you,ll kill the box very quickly. mine does,nt like manual change from DRIVE-2nd. if you want to spin the wheels (??) try left foot braking, build up the revs/torque converter and depending on the road surface/grip, you should get your desired wheel spin. (still not recommended) takes abit of practise, as i was practicing for the 1/4 mile (not spin)

I could help by describing in detail what 32 + years of auto driving has taught me..but I really don't want a conversation on wheel spinning.

As above you will kill your gearbox doing that? why do you want wheelspin anyhow? It only slows you down!!!!!
