I doubt it...you are just spinning the tires. No big deal.

But when you kick the back end out, avgn, you will probably put extra wear on the clutch, depending on how you "do it". May not hurt 1st gear /synchros, but the clutch- extra heat/friction, translates to wear. Right? Be careful.

You'll be okay. Make sure you don't hit a curb thatd be my concern. Doing this every once in a while won't do anything bad.

Doing so probably puts less load on the trans than a straight line pull in the dry, especially from a stop or low speed.
