    I heard it's better to burnout, then fade away. :)

    Oh I’ve done them a couple times. When it was a 4.3 we put down hydraulic fluid on a concrete bridge and lit up one wheel.

    When I bought my 98 c1500 5.7, 5 Speed 3.42's G80 new it came with cheap Uniroyal 235-75-15 tires and it was real easy to burn the tires in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. gear. I now only run Michelins LTX MS 2 and I don't attempt that any more because of the grip factor they offer. I can still a burnout in 1st, and 2nd but it's not worth it.

    All you tough guys that seem to smoke tires with ease need to bring your asses here to CO and see how unpossible the burnies become.

    Yeah, I think so. At least I'll gain somewhere about 1.2" in width and stay close to OE height.

    Won't happen at your elevation, LOL, but I may be able to tune a little more fuel into it. Who knows? You can't beat boost in high altitudes though, I'll give you that!

    That's why both trucks are packing blowers. There is no substitute. They'll blow donuts in TX though on concrete. :D
