          What specific parts are giving you trouble? What have you tried so far?

           

          Without knowing the answers to these questions and how familiar you already are with After Effects, all that I can do is to recommend that you spend some time here learning the basics first:

            i know the basics and i've tried the the practical world effect but at some point i lost control! especially that it's not showing in my video its showing as a black image or smthg like that. what do i have to do first ? track the motion of the camera and the motion of the car ?

              Particle World, surely.

              PW is applied to a solid, not to your car layer.

              Particles and transparency are advanced functions. Tracking your particle emitter to the car is even more complicated. Adding smoke and a floor for the sparks to bounce off is even more complicated. None of these effects can be dealt with in these little posts. Hit the inter webs and youtube and look for tutorials for Particle World. I don't think you'll find a video of any value that runs for less than about 30 minutes. PW is stupidly complex.

                  And I agree with Todd, if you haven't used AE much, you can't do advanced effects like this. AE is not something you can just jump into. Follow Todd's link and prepare to spend several days becoming familiar with how to use AE before you even begin advanced effects like this.
