89 Ford Escort (a friends - in good shape for the age)
Nearly every year of Sunfire and Sunfire GT
A few V6 Trans Ams (not the V8 Suckers)
Multiple V6 Mustangs (once again, none of the V8's)
87 Ford Ranger (A friends really nice truck check it out on Ford Truck World - His nickname is Mickey)

Probably a few that I'm missing

Friends Ranger again
My Escort
Ford Probes (many years)

Friends Ranger
Friends Escort

I know that this thread is old, but I finally read Jame's question, and the answer is..... not for that. In 3 years, that's not that much. It's always done safely too. Whenever I do it, there's nobody around, and I never let the tires light up. In my Grand Prix, the thing seems to be perfectly timed, you get the smallest squeal from them, and you just feel the thing go. In the Sentra, it's harder to do, I need a perfect launch, or I'm screwed, I gotta do about 3/4 throttle till about 5 or 10, then floor it. It's geared nicely up untill 4th. In my escort, well, as you can see, there's not that much that I've raced, and untill recently, I couldn't get the tires to make any noise (now they squeal if I stomp on it.. not sure why.)

The Grand Prix has more torque than your Sentra or Escort, so it's easier to squeal them.

the sound of the squealing actually comes from the tires, you're scraping them along the pavement, it rips off bits of rubber.
