    Gotta love those open diffs.:D I can get a small chirp outta mine (87 tbi 355, rebuilt, fuel injection upgrades, headers, performer manifold, 37"s, 4.56's) but the detroit eliminates that real quick (at least in a straight line:D :D )

    When I had my open diff in my truck, I could leave a long patch of rubber behind me. :D

    With my 305/SM465/35"s/4.10s

    But my loc-rite seriously limits the burn out.

    i thought i was gonna blow up my first rear end doing burnouts because of the gov lock instead it was in the mud then i had a 3.08 geared ten bolt with open diff and i did a few burn outs with it and it ended up breaking the keeper bolt letting the keeper pin slide out and eating up my pinion and i threw it in 4 wd to get home and the axles fell of lmao and then i got smart and a got a 14bsf lol id like to of gotten a ff but i couldnt afford new wheels as well

    air is more dense when cold, more oxygen in it. more oxygen into the engine = more power. :deal:

    i'd almost bet your TV cable isnt adjusted properly.

    edit: your profile says "stock drivetrain" and 35s. there's your problem. until you do something about the stock gears, you're not going to be able to keep a tranny in it. a large cooler is also in order.

    i got the stock cooler and a large tube aftermarket cooler. but why would my TV cable have anything to do with my reverse? and another thing i need to change my description stuff cause it isnt a stock drivetrain still stock 3.73 gearing though and how do i change my signature.

    a misadjusted TV cable will cause fluid pressure to be too low, and kill EVERYTHING, may start in reverse, may start in forward gears, i've seen it go both ways. TV cable adjustment is very critical in a 700R4, if its off, just by a notch, it can easily mean death to the trans.
