    Your rear brakes probably need to be readjusted. What happens is twhen you put it in and adjusted the brakes you couldnt do it. Well after the brakes seated in, they need to be adjusted again. With the brakes not grabbing it way easier to do burn outs.

    Oh well just be happy that you can do burnouts!! It cost me $500 for my new motor to burn my tires off (35x12.50). The 4.10 posi rear helps though. Well, the 4.10s do...not so much the posi!!

    How many of you can just mash to go pedal and leave a patch and how many have to powerbrake the truck and then how many can't get the tires to break loose no matter what they do? I have 36 inch swamper sx's with 4:10 gears, turbo 350 and I just installed a built 427 rat motor last week. I am still breaking the motor in but I can't leave a patch. I had the same motor with stock intake and exhaust in a 1970 chevelle and at 40 mph I could mash the gas and leave posi sidways in the middle of the road with 26 inch tires and 3:36 gears. The motor for the truck has some aftermarket parts and the truck won't burn out from a dead stop, the 350 before it didn't do it either. Are the tires just to big? How many of you have the burnout problem?

    The contact patch for 36 inch Swampers puts a lot of rubber on the road!

    The other thing that can make a huge difference is the torque converter. A stock truck converter engages at low RPM, long before the engine is near its torque peak, especially with a cam that's hotter than stock. By the time the engine gets up to the torque peak, the truck is already rolling down the road. A looser converter will give you a much more agressive launch, but it also makes it difficult to crawl along slow, rocky trails. The engine has to be spun up higher to get the truck moving, which also creates a lot of heat from the torque converter.

    The cam is an edelbrock performer, with perfromer intake. I should have lots of go off the line. I have a new stock converter and plan to change to a slight higher stall but for now its flashing at 1,500. Great for crawling but even so I should have enough torque at 1,500 to roast them up

    a 3300 lb car can light them up easier then a 6000 lb truck like a k5, pickups have it easier usually less weight on the rear then a k5

    If my truck didn't have fulltime 4X4 I'm sure I could leave a pretty good patch, it's got a nice take-off, I've dusted lots of other people's 4X4's handily. I run stock tires.

    My stock 87 with a sick 350 would spin easily with no braking, especially on new pavement, and my 87 K20 often squeaks a bit b/c I am not very handy with the manual tranny!! (yet, getting better all the time...)
