    When do your guys tires start spinning? Mine don't spin until 2000. So im guessing I have a higher stall converter?

    Tires will not spin till you build up enough power to overcome the rear brakes. Remember that doing burnouts that way is also burning up rear brakes and causing a lot of heat for drums seals and wheel bearings. If you like destroying tires I would install a line lock so you can lock down the front brakes only. With a line lock your rear tires will spin as soon as you hit the throttle without heating anything but tires.
    Nascar uses an adjustable proportioning valve so when they do burnouts they just turn the rear brakes off in effect. That way they can adjust the speed they are burning down with the brake pedal.

    I can vouch for that! One of the first things I had to do to my truck. Younger me got a little crazy with the brake stands and had to replace all of the above.

    What about installing an adjustable pepperoni valve for the back, and just turning it down, so the front would only grab? That should work, eh?

    When my oldest son was little, we talked about what kind of truck he wanted "when he grew up". He wanted a monster truck like gravedigger that made hot dogs and pizza. I could make my son's dream come true (at least partially) if this pepperoni valve could be mounted on a Ford Ranger. :)

    I imagine we could make it work. Pepperoni valve are generally somewhat universal.

    I've got a pepperoni valve for sale,its used but ill cut ya a hell of a deall lol

    I always clamp my rear lines if I'm feeling frisky,my tahoe has two big c clamps on the back lines,has for about 2 years now lol whenever i feel the need to melt down some tires,i go out to the garage and find some shi*t tires,mount them,then proceed to fog out the neighborhood/back roads/parking garages/and or middle of town lol. This isnt a good idea though if you actually care about your vehicle,its a real quick way to find weak spots in your brake lines and drench your tailgate with brake fluid lol
