    Clamp a small vise grip on the rear rubber brake line just before the 'show'... It's just above the distribution block on the diff. Easier on the rear brakes too. After the smoke show remove the vice grip.

    You have to clamp it hard enough to prevent the rear brakes from working.

    Alternatives would be a washer nozzle aimed at the tires...pretty easy to hook up actually. Fill the washer bottle with bleach./forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That was awesome going by cruisers w/ open headers with them not caring. Summer nationals are better than Christmas, I tell ya.

    make sure your rear brakes arent really dirty so they're not locking up. or get a linelock for the front /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It's like spinning tires on wet pavement...plus the bleach makes the tires smoke even more.

    Back when my truck still had the auto tranny, I had 33's, a welded 14b and TH350 tranny. I could do burnouts on command, on wet or dry pavement and concrete, even in reverse. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif It's all about big block power. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I've been trying to decide if I could still do that with the 465...Interesting to work all three pedals at once. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    my show truck,white lightning, has a built 454/500hp engine. it is a 1 ton with detroits F&R, 5.13's, and i have 39.5" MT's. i can do a burnout on dry pavement cruisin down the road. on wet roads i have a hell of a time. if u barely tap the pedal u got crazy as hell and it spins all over and is hard to control. its all about the motor and gears.

    [/ QUOTE ] its not hard. I can do it with my 350 k5. Just rev it up to like 2k, drop the clutch and jump on the brake and gas. its hard to brake with your heel and get the right pressure. I could do this and move about 2 feet before I got it to sit still. With a BB I could see it being much easier and a 2k drop being harder on that rear u joint /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif.
