I'm gonna go get my car checked out anyway but I was just wondering if you guys could give me an idea of what might wrong.

Either one or both of these things is causing a burning smell to come from my car.

Friday Night:
1. I did a huge burnout, redlining first and second before I got traction. When I got home I smelled the burning smell but figure it was my tires.

Saturday Night:
2. I drove for about 15 minutes with my e-brake partially engaged. When I got to my destination I noticed the same burning smell and then realized my e-brake was engaged.

NOTE: My e-brake may also have been partially engaged for the burnout and 15 minute ride home the night before.

Now for the last couple days there's a burning smell whenever I drive. As soon as I turn on the a/c or heater I smell it, and even if I don't the smell eventually works it's way into the cabin. And the smell lingers, I even smelled it yesterday when I came back to my car to head for lunch 3 hours after driving into work.

Did I fry my clucth, rotors, is my dumbass in for some expensive repairs and if so is there anyway I could BS the dealer into covering it under warranty since my car is barelyly 3 months old. Help guys.

That's the smell of nicely fried e-brake!
I did the same thing on an old Fiat X-19
I had back in college!

A burning e-brake smells a lot different
than burning rubber...

Waddy I am getting the same smell. I don't think I did anything wrong to my car but whenever I turn on the heat I get a burning rubber smell. It doesn't stay and doesn't always happen. So I could see myself going to the dealer and it not happening. Or blaming it on my intake.

Fortunately I'm stock, my02 so they can't blame me for anything (besides doing big, huge, rolling burnouts :D), I'm taking it in maybe Thursday.

Yo Alex I got a couple CD's for you bro, full of Elephant Man, Assasin, Bounty Killa and all the rest, if I ever make it up to Dallas or you head down to H-Town I'll burn you a copy. If you make it down here then I also got some Appleton at the crib to sweeten the deal.

Back to my burning smell, the smell is definitely not rubber. I guess I am just wondering if I damaged anything and when will the smell go away, it's been 3 days, but I haven't really driven much in those 3 days so maybe whatever it is hasn't gotten a chance to work itself out.

Arie, mon!
Thanks.

Say, we're having our December meet on the 14th. Can
u make it up?

The Appleton sounds great, however I'm still trying to polish
off all we brought back from June. We disguised a few more
bottles than customs would allow... :D

I trust the trip was all that...?

Yeah, the TX chapter decided it was time for a change and
via unanimus vote decided to break away and do our thang!

NvUs is hot and poppin'...check us out. We've got our own forum here under the Car Clubs section.

I trust you didn't run into any Bumpa Cluts down on the island?:D
