This is what happens when you have too little rubber contacting the road on the front tires, and just enough on the back. Right click on link and choose "save target as"

The funny thing was that was just before I bought it. The driver was the previous owner, and I was taking the video! So I wasn't as scared as he was. He attempted it two more times that day, and the results were the same. I finally got it out of the garage yesterday, and was able to check out the line lock and the tranny brake. Yep, everything works fine. Problem is my driveway is too short, needs to be about a half mile longer. Burn Out

My neighbors are cool. Besides, I didn't abuse it that bad.

I watched that vid you took of it a friend of mine had a camero that did the same thing have you checked to make sure that the rear end gears are in good condition cause that was the source of his problem his locker had broken and once we put a new one in it was all good except we couldnt stage it with line lock and idle it over 2500 rpm or the car just walked on done the track!!

The problem I was having was the fact that the rear tires are 16" wide and the fronts are only 4 1/2". The gears at the time were 5.43 and it has a spool. So add the fact that there wasn't any water to get the tires spinning, and you have what the video showed.

Don't forget to right click and choose "save target as". I just double checked it again and it works. If you just left click, you're right, it won't work.
