Well, I have heard of rear ends being destroyed from burnouts. Also, you might want to invest in a line-lock.

I don't see a point in a line lock if no sticky tires.If you have sticky tires,deff. get a line lock especially if you do a lot of drag racing.Your first weakness is the rear end.Even more so with sticky tires.my .02

If you have a manual with drag radials, you will destroy your stock 10" rear.

Not sure what you mean by that, it's a great thing to have if you do a lot of burnouts regardless of what type of tire you have.

Not the best idea to do burnouts on street tires before a drag race is what I was saying.

Not if you ride the clutch and actually drive the car.

You will probably break the trans before you hurt the rear in an auto car. That is, assuming you don't have any wheel hop. Wheel hop is bad.

4L60E (STOCK)+ Burnouts= One pissed off guy when he has to rebuild the trans because of abuse

Main reason i got the 6speed. id rather replace a diff than deal with a busted automatic trans, and i work at a transmission shop could probably build one for less than $600... I just don't like auto's lol, great for drag racing though, just not something i do enough to worry about being super consistent
