    How do you do those really cool smoky burnouts? You know the ones where you stand still for a minute with the tires spinnning and smoking and then take off. Do you use the brakes or what?

    Called power braking. Hold the break and mash the GAS!! There's a guy in the local 4x4 club called the Ground Pounders and he can power brake. He has a Chevy truck with 40" Bajas on it. I don't know how he does it, but with mud tires.......it sounds PHAT!!

    That ain\'t no burnout!!

    Cmon,

    You gotta be kidding, that stuff is reserved for high school parking lots! I remember I guy in highs school who had a f-250 with a 460 in it. He would roll them off in low range. One day the rear u-joint blew off at the diff which put more torque to the front axle which blew mere u-seconds later. Really cool!! Any way JC Whitney sells line locks for about 20 bucks. I use them on my boat hauling truck. Just step on the brake and push the button. I have mine set up on the front brakes as the rear wheels are sometimes in slimy boat ramps. One day I set the line lock while pointed down hill and the boat on the trailer. Tongue weight is about 800 lbs. Big Suburban with 12.5 radials on it.

    Now I usually use low range ( front hubs disengaged ) to move around ramp areas as it is easier on the tranny, hills can be steep. Buddy hops in to move the truck, (line lock set in front) stereo going full blast, 12 beers in him, no brains etc., and proceeds to attempt to drive around the ramp area. Burb had a mini spool and 454 so it just went ahead and went. Talk about a burnout! Tached out in first catches second and builds speed until front end catches on dry pavement back down to first at redline, smoke rolling and howling like bitch. This went on for about a couple hundred yards, woulda been more but it would not turn worth a damn. Layed two 12.5 inch black streaks wrinlked asphalt and all for 200+ yards. The only reason he stopped is cause it would't turn, you could see him slowly working the wheel left and run. He just got out looked behind him and shrugged his shoulders, got a beer out of the boat and took a whiz behind the nearest pickup truck and yelled "boat don't tow worth a [censored]". Back tires were about ¼ inch shy of tread compared to the front after that! Welll we proceeed straight to the campsite afte that and razzed him all night. He owns a jeep no less!

    there is a thing called a line lock that holds your front tires still until you release it. they are usually mounted on your shifter, then you dump lots of bleach on your rear tires, press the line lock and plant your foot in the carb. you won't be able to see the car for all the white smoke.

    When I was a dumb-ass kid in high school we used to do that stuff. I had a 72 Dart with a 340 auto and a 8 3/4" 3.23:1 sure grip rear end. I used to put vise grips on the rear brake lines (told you I was a dumb-ass).
    We used to call them brake stands though.
    Anyways, that little car would have lit them up real good even without the vise grips but I hate doing brakes [​IMG]. Looked real cool but man that car would stink like burnt rubber for weeks.
    I should never have gotten rid of that car, it was way too much fun!! [​IMG]

    I can do it with my truck. Have been able to do it since it was stock. All I do is put it in a forward gear, step on the brakes (HARD!!!!), and then step on the gas, slowly increasing the gas. It will sort of "preload" the brakes. It kinda "hunkers" down some, the front end drops, and then all of a sudden, WWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH and lots of white smoke go my cheap @ss rear tires. Definately not good for the brakes or the tires, and I'm sure some more stuff. One of these days when I grow up I will stop taking such fun out of it. Hope this helps.

    Blazer,
    Twenty bucks, JC whitney. From master cylinder run about a 2-3 foot piece of brakeline to the unit which will mounted near emergency brake lever. Device is about 2"square x 3/4 inch. From device run another piece of line back to the line you disconnected from master cylinder and join the two with a double female fitting. Step on brake and mash unit button, release brake and you are locked. To release step on brake again. Viloa, go roast em.

    I dont believe in powerbraking. My 85 K3500 dually had a 454. All you had to do drop the clutch hard and you broke loose. You haven't lived life till you have seen a Dually p/u cooking them at a stoplight.

    I used to do brake stands in my 86 S-10 Blazer. I'd hold the brake and hammer the gas. The tires would spin and the back of the truck would get engulfed in smoke. I had people convinced that I didn't really have the 2.8L V6 in it. Then my rearend started going out and I had to replace the whole posi-rear diff. That was in my younger days.....

    Cr#p everytime I try to light my tires up the mud puts them out, and I gave up a long time ago the effort to look cool, I'm more impressed with a good solid line up a rock faced hill, or a good run down a bog[​IMG]....tires=<font color=green>money</font color=green> why in the world would set fire to <font color=green>money</font color=green>[​IMG]...guess I'm just showing my age but I hardly ever did that when I was young and stupid[​IMG]...just at the tracks racing the ole straight lines......

    Back before I had my blazer I was driveing my brothers hand me down Honda Civic CRX. Not a very powefull car, and front wheel drive. My friend darred me to somke em and I knew it would embarass my sister in her highschool parking lot. I hammered the gas pedal and dumped the clutch around 6k rpm. Boy was there smoke. I moved about three feet in 60 seconds, and made it all the way into 2nd gear. My sister did not get into the car untill all her friends left. We went to different highschool at the time so no one knew who I was. The principal did have a chat with her the next day though. HAHAHAHA. Boy was that fun. There is nothing like driveing a car that you did not pay for.
