    I really cant wait to try out 4.88 with 36's and no weight in the rear...

    It's final drive geared lower than when I bought it, and it could pull a burn every once in a while with street tires

    I smoked mine for the first time the other day. Kinda fun but I probably won't do it again for a long time. Tires and gas are expensive and I am poor. Fun to watch people look at you.

    If it wasn't for TPI my response would have been I can't smoke them. But FI is cool and makes lots of torque down low. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Whats the trick to smoking tires? Do you have to take the tires to a shredder before you can roll it into a joint? I find it repulsive that you would even think about inhaling rubber smoke from lighting it. Just stick with the other stuff (pot, cigs, etc.). /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif














































    /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif Had you guys there for a second, huh? Of course! I smoke the tires every now and then, just to get a kick out of it. But then again, I don't do it too often because I don't want to buy new tires all the time. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Used to smoke them all the time in the IROC, but slowly started slowing down as i got tired of paying as much as $120each for tires for that thing. So i started buying used tires... /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Haven't had it in years, Narrowed 12 bolt, 4 link rear suspension, and some M/T 50's wrinkle walls (drag slicks)Not to mention the motor was set back as far as we could get it (Notched the firewall for dist. clearence) Car was striped of all extra wieght. Was a very fun toy till someone decided they needed it more then I did (Stolden) . What we recovered a few years later wasn't worth much. Ended up selling what was left on ebay.

    Hows else would i go through 8 trannys in 3 years! I totalled the last 700 r4 by going about 50 mph and slamming it into reverse and doing a mean flying J, spun me right around and man the smoke was mean.
