English term or phrase: burn rubber
The sentence is "Leave for a brain roadtrip! Burn rubber and leave the stress behind".
Marina Herrera
Spanish translation:quemar llanta
Explanation:
Marina,
El modismo equivalente en México sería "quemar llanta", lo que significa arrancar rápidamente. Algo que podrías usar sería "pisar el acelerador a fondo" para que quedara:
¡Viaje por las carreteras de su cerebro! ¡Pise el acelerador a fondo y deje la tensión atrás!
Ojalá que te sirva y mucha suerte, parece que está divertido,

arráncate


Explanation:
Dale a tu cerebro un descanso en la carretera. Arráncate y deja atrás el estrés.

(O sea, raya con las llantas)

Es puro modismo esta frase pero la entiendo bien, ¡pues hago lo mismo de vez en cuando!

(Salir en auto en un viaje por carretera a veces ayuda a aliviar el estrés, siempre y cuando viaje uno por carreteras despejadas y con bonito paisaje.)

Echa un patin


Explanation:
My two previous colleagues are correct.
You should use the expression most common to the country in which the action takes place. In Cuba ( or Miami ) it would be "echar un patin".
