    Depends with an LSD(Limited Slip Diff) You will do a two wheel burn out.

    Which i pretty sure the Eclipse didnt come with one. U should be able to do a one wheel burn out!

    Almost any car can do a burnout. Cars with a lot of power can break the tires loose really easy. Cars with little power can still get the wheels spinning with a little help from water under the tires to reduce traction.

    When only one wheel spins that means the vehicle is equipped with a standard differential. So whichever wheel has the least traction will spin, and the other will not. When you have a positraction differential, it keeps both axles locked (or partially locked) together for improved traction. Therefore, when doing a burnout, both wheels spin (smoke).

    Any car with an open differential will do a one-wheeled burnout. To achieve a two-wheeled burnout you need a limited-slip or locking differential. A one-wheeled burnout happens because open differentials supply both wheels with the same amount of torque regardless of the circumstances so if one wheel loses traction it will continue to spin because there is no resistance. This is eliminated by a limited slip differential because is contains a spring pack and clutches that fight to keep the wheels spinning the same speed and provide resistance, which requires a certain amount of torque to overcome before the wheels will spin.

    The car has to have some sort of limited slip diff to have a chance of smokin both wheels.

    if you jack up the car so the drive wheels are off the ground, spin one wheel and if the other side wheel spins the same direction it is an lsd, if it spins the opposite direction it is an open centre diff and it won't spin both wheels during a burnout.

    if your Eclipse is diven by a manual transmission then you could just rev it up and completely dump the clutch, For automatic rev it up on Neutral and slam it onto Drive.
