Nuetral drops(putting your automatic in nuetral,revving the engine to high rpms,then dropping it into drive are); not good,not advised,bad fr your transmission,ill advised,not covered under waranty,doesnt look cool,wont make ya go faster,and just plain stupid im my humble opinion.Other's may want to add there opinion.
So now if anybody asks that question now,tell them to ,,,do a search.;)
ps ,,this doesnt apply to the manual transmission(The car with 3 pedals):checkit:

When my car was in the shop, I had a olds alero (or some crap like that) for a rental. I tried to do a neutral drop, but the throttle was "fly-by-wire", and it wouldn't physically drop into gear until the revs had been brought down to about 1k.... that sucked... I was planning on trashing the transmission.... :D

Dale Teague autocrossed a front wheel drive Legacy automatic last year and at start he always dropped into first, put his left foot all the way down on the brake, and blipped the throttle until takeoff. I was pretty impressed with how well the car took off like that. He could get some impressive wheelspin with that car too, when he wanted that.
