reverse has a much lower gear ratio, most guys do a burnout to at least second gear... and a lot of them would probably get a lot of hop.

And if you spit your transmission out in the street we'd like to see the video as well. Btw, theres no way in hell the track officials will let you do this. If youre on street tires you shouldnt be doing a true burnout anyways, drive around the water and give it enough throttle to spin em a little bit to fling whatever water you did pick up then give it the beans.

Yep. It has a V8 so it HAS to be RWD, right?

Im pretty sure something would break or sound horrid if you gave to much throttle in reverse.

I did this once, one BALD tires.. Well, tried.. I assumed the 100% FLAT tires would spin in any direction, but to my surprise, I caught a BUTTLOAD of grip and just that tap on the gas pedal set me back about 4 cars lengths... Lol

Why ANYONE would want to do a reverse burnout is beyond my comprehension. Your tranny is in my thoughts and prayers.

Why not?

I thought about doing a rear wheel stand, the back of my car is light enough, I've gotten on the brakes hard enough to lift both rear tires, wasn't trying it to, just happened during an event. Anyway, I quickly decided not to. Would be cool to see.
