well, your kinda doing it right, just need more power from your engine i guess. my tires start spinning at like 1600 or so, and i really dont need to hold the brakes. just give er hell. its not too good to powerbrake because you are holding the brakes on and it puts stress on everything and results in glazed or even cracked rear brake pads and other drivetrain parts. but it sure is fun......he he he

If you don't want to tear something up, don't do a burnout. No matter how you do it, its hard on your drivetrain.

but...

water or bleach under tires makes it alot easier...

Um yea, if you have had your Nelson Tuned Lately it makes it so much easier... But if you havent got your Nelson Tuned I would suggest it, makes a hell of a burnout...

This was without a Nelson tune, BTW. :LOL:

Once you get the tires spinning, feather the throttle and they will continue to spin. This pic was taken about halfway through the burnout. Towards the end, most of the truck was covered in smoke, and I had to get out of the area because the cloud was starting to attract attention.

Probably not as much as you would think, the hardest part is getting them to break traction in the first place, because you're breaking static friction. Once they're spinning all you're overcoming is sliding friction, which isn't nearly as strong. Besides...



...thats a photoshop :LOL:

The only parts that were torn up were the tires. :driver:

Here's another photoshop. :LOL: I poured 1 cup of bleach on each tire, but as you can see, very little of it actually got under the tires. :crazy:
