    4 Wheelin\' Burnout

    Today, one of my moronic teenage "freinds" suggested that it would look cool to see a burnout in 4WD. I thought this over and although it would be cool to see, wouldn't this reek havoc on the drivetrain? I wasn't going to do it though despite my freinds taunts. Just wondering what damage it would cause. thanks.

    Re: 4 Wheelin\' Burnout

    First, if you plan to do this on pavement, you need LOTS of torque to do it. With a stock or mostly stock 350 you're just going to take off, even in low range. I've done some great 4-wheel rooster tails in the dirt but there's just too much traction on pavement.

    Oh yeah, try it too many times and I sure hope you have a very stout drivetrain! [​IMG]

    Ha!! Torque!! Not to offend anyone but i had a 327 in my 82 that put out about 550 horses and about 530 ft/lbs of torque (right out of my nova after i wrecked it) locked in my hubs put it in 4Low and stomped on that sonuvab**ch and all mine did was bind up the tansfer case and i lost 2 driveshafts and universals. So i hate to say it but torque aint always gonna do it.

    Try it and you'll be like Mr. Black...Broke. Unless you can find a way to hook to a big a$$ tree or something and ease on the gas maybe then you'd have less of a chance. Motor torque like flooring an auto off the line won't do much but like dumping the clutch or neutral to drive it (I HIGHLY DON'T RECOMMEND!!!) you aren't playing as much with engine torque as you are with all the rotating mass that's trying to slow down. So all in all I'd say don't try it........ if you want to do burn outs get a rental car...

    Wasn't me.............

    Re: 4 Wheelin\' Burnout

    I have warn hubs in the front of my truck and would put it in 4lo. Quite a nice show. The truck will do it in 2wd, but it helps to have the tires turned to the right to take a bit of the load off the right rear under torque. The 4lo situation takes the cake tho.

    I will mention that one time I blew a $350 six states CV Shaft into more pieces than dollars I spent on it doing that, so I don't really suggest it on pavement.

    If you sdecide to chance it then bring some dish sope with you and soake all four with soap then roll front and back to get a soapy track then nail it!!
    If you do this have a camera taking picks so we can see it!
    Or better yet video it and post the vid on the web for us!![​IMG]

    Tell them a 4 Wheel Drive burnout is done in extremely deep mud. Say "Stand right back there to watch the tires squeal" [​IMG]. Whats all this dragracing stuff in a 4x4 anyway? Tell them to follow you sometime through some real tough stuff. That will "prove" your worthiness.

    Re: 4 Wheelin\' Burnout

    I wouldn't try it. Too many possiblities of breakage.

    Now, my friend bought a 2001 Dodge 3/4 Extended Cab long Bed 4x4 with an Auto and a Cummins Turbo Diesel. Man, Will this thing lay two huge strips of rubber!!!!!!!!!!!
    In the parking lot of a local resuraunt, there are two nice strips about 30ft long!!!!!!

    Hearing the diesel and the turbo screamin is also a plus!!!

    Yeah, I won't be trying this anytime soon, a new drivetrain is not on my starving student budget!

    Not worth the cost or replacing most of the driveline just to see a bit of smoke. I do remember an old photo of a Hurst Olds 442 with 2 motors that could light up all four...but that was long ago and I have slept since then...

    Re: 4 Wheelin\' Burnout

    I have done it but only the rear tires, I wouldn't do it again though, if I didnt break anything the last time the next time I probably will.

    check out my new site, thanks Steve!

    Re: 4 Wheelin\' Burnout

    One of my friends was playing with his dads FS chevy pickup after a new 454 was dropped in it. He put it in 4low and side-stepped the clutch. Those brand new 31's left some pretty cool patches as the truck started to slide sideways before it took off. He didn't get to drive the truck much after that.

    Re: 4 Wheelin\' Burnout

    Come on GUYZ, I came to this post to
    see pictures! :-)))) I thought, "Man,
    whose the dummy that tried/did this?"

    I especially liked the post that said
    550hp and 530+ torque... I think that
    post says it all. Sorry 89BlackK5 that
    you had to mess up the checkbook to
    find out for us all. I suppose it sounded
    like a good idea at the time. :-) I
    can see me, years earlier, with a few
    brewskies in me, making the same
    attempt after some heavy taunting... I
    once made an attempt to JUMP a snowbank
    with 4 people in my 82K5 Pickemup. Lemme
    give you a little advice... Don't try
    it!

    I'd love to see a pic of the 4wd burnout
    if anyone ever finds one!

    Well in alot of magazines that show the S10 V8 Swap they use the picture of a 4wd s10 blazer doing a 4 wheel roast session.. Wow that is cool.. I have done a 4 wheel burnout in my rig but it was on gravel/pavement mix. Still looked cool.. Next time I gotta bring the camera to have proof.

    Re: 4 Wheelin\' Burnout

    That S10 was probably rolled thru a burnout box first to smoke all 4. Hell, with wet tires I can get some smoke with my stock 305 turning 33's! Not that I do this often...[​IMG]

    Re: 4 Wheelin\' Burnout

    The stock axles under an S-10 would explode in short order from doing 4-wheel burnouts. The wimpy 7.5 inch rear and those front Cavalier half-shafts can't take much abuse. [​IMG]

    Kinda like a proportionately larger K5 Blazer would be with stock 10 bolt front and rear axles, right???

    Re: 4 Wheelin\' Burnout

    I've blown apart a bunch of 12-bolts and pounded the hard-facing off of the side gears in a 10-bolt. So yeah, probably about right.

    That's why I'm running a 14-bolt FF now. [​IMG]
