A one wheel peel is spinning only one of the drive wheels during a burnout. This is due to not having a limited slip or a locking differential such as a Posi, Trac-Lok, Tru-Lok or Detroit locker assembly to name a few. Many front wheel drive cars do not come with limited slip differentials. See also one tire fire.
Did you see that Civic just do a one wheel peel from the stoplight?
