Bite me, if they didn't disable the first one, I'd be using it.

3 wheeling videos, in one of them both lift a little.

i can vouch as i have seen jp so do crazy **** and push his car to ultimate limit. and i had jp's three wheeling pic for back ground for a few days because its just badass.

and i really dont see why im getting so much **** for asking a question. i was just wondering if anyone tried it and if it would work , it was just a thought. and if i was to try it and my tranny gave out i could care less... just go to the dealer and get another one

I definitely don't push it to the limit... I do push it, though. There was that time I three wheeled at ~90 getting on the interstate, that was a little scary...

Just try it and see. Do an anti-brake stand, lock the E-brake, ease into at first to see what it'll do, then go to your heart's content, it's your car, and you'll have to explain to the dealership what happened.

I think its a valid questions. Especially if you're trying to heat up the tires. Only issue its you'd won't get them spinning very fast.

They'll heat up going forward. It's not practical to use reverse.

It won't work.

Reverse is geared lower - it will push especially since the rear is light

Weight transfer is going to make it very hard to NOT get traction and again push the rear.

Anyone remember the thread on the Gixxer forum about the guy that put NOS energy drink into his tank, thinking it was NOS Octane Booster? And *that* was accidental stupidity; this, on the other hand...
GXP-Miller-GXP, thread 2: "Tried Reverse Burnout. Trans Broke. Warranty?" -- If that happens, I can see 'Tech getting trolled to death for a few days.


Just please, do your burnouts in Drive; Spare us, the dealership and your transmission.

At least the poor bastard didn't drink the Octane Booster, he'd fart and land somewhere in the Middle East!!

it works, my 2002 suburban doesnt allow you to do burnouts in a forward gear becuase of all the B.S computers so in the school parken lot id find one of those concrete blocks put her in reverse and let it smoke them.
