Possible to do Burnouts in 2007 Camry LE?

Going down my bucket list. Never did a "burnout" before.
Is there a way to disable traction control in 2007 Camry LE?
Then just pull the hand brake and floor it???
Has anyone every done this before on a 2007 Camry?
Also, this car won't die. I am original owner and have 107,000 mile still going with just oil changes/filters etc. Looking forward to the day when it blows up so I have an excuse to get myself a new Camry. Can anyone comment on how many miles until they needed a major repair on a 2007 Camry LE?

My 2002 went to 201,000 with only a water pump and radiator. Ended up giving to a friend. It's still running.

Do some neutral drops if you want major repairs

Yes, there is a way to disable traction. No, I won't tell you how since it requires a level of intelligence and maturity

Burnout Portion:
Are you sure you have the model with a “handbrake”? Wouldn’t be a hand break if it was a really a foot break for your model. I would say yes, you should be able to do it if your braking system doesn’t interfere with the burnout attempt.

Example:

Example 2:

Example 3:

If the car won’t die portion:
Expect to change out your spark plugs, coolant flush, maybe a waterpump replacement, maybe ATF change/replacement at the 110K interval.
Maybe the sticky dashboard recall if you didn’t take it up yet.

Another major repair would be imminent if you do the burnout every week or at every other car meet or so. Just don’t drop the shift from Neutral into Drive at 5K rpm, that can quickly kill the auto trans. Burnouts can probably wear out your brakes and rotors if you keep at breaking and gas the same time(little know secret is that this may give your car a screenshot).

So turn off traction control, e-brake and then send it!

Sorry, I meant foot brake.
How do I turn off traction control?

Well, he asked and I gave him the answer. He thinks the engine/car at 100k miles won’t die, just wait till it does at whatever miles it gets to.
But for the burnouts on the Camry, it’s best to do it at the local Cars & Coffee meet and he’ll be the next talk of the town(an embarrassing talk on social media).
Camry i4 burnouts are frowned upon, I’d rather do it if I had a V6 SE with straight piping at least.

Why won’t you (OP) get a Lexus RWD (IS/GS) for your next car and have at it(learning to do burnouts), it’ll be a better experience than in a Camry with old stock tires.
Even an old Lexus IS300 2004 with a 2JZ-GE engine would justify burnouts for the learning and controlled burnouts experience.

Otherwise, the engine of your 2007 is still young, hoon the f#%* out of it till the transmission breaks or engine headgasket blows, whatever comes first but hope you learn to do hoodrat shenanigans properly.

On the reliability part, my 07 4 cyl. got up to 280K before I traded it in for my '14. Went through all the regular maintenance, and 3 cat converters before I finally got rid of it.

Before you attempt to do a burnout with a Toyota Camry, go to the police station and say please give me a 5150.

I have a six cylinder Toyota Camry. After decades of driving many different vehicles including muscle cars I classify my Camry into the category of plain vanilla transportation. It is not a car to accelerate fast in or a car to drive over 100 mph in. It is a modest car to comfortably get from point A to point B with minimal expenditures in gasoline, maintenance, and repairs.

A 5150 is a "temporary, involuntary psychiatric commitment of individuals who present a danger to themselves or others due to signs of mental illness". Is it dangerous to do a burnout? If I do it on my private property I assume it is not illegal?

I am working on getting the traction control disabled so I can try the burnout. I wish there was a button.

How many miles did the first Cat converter go? Aside the CAT, did it need any other repairs? Especially interested around the 100,000 mile mark.
