True. The only thing tray drifting messes up is ur tires but isnt burning out the whole point of this thread? Lol. That is unless u hit a curb or a light post or something.

and yes i'm talking about crank horsepower. the whp is probably like bewteen 100-110 whp.
if that I'm not entirely sure. the kid that i bought it from said it was about 125hp and i've added a magnaflow cat and an high flow air filter from spectre since.

Liberal amounts of Armor All.

Back to a more purposeful response, are you wanting to do this for nonsensible reasons? I say this because...

1. You don't need to heat a treaded street tire for a pass at the DRAGSTRIP. You'll only get laughed at.

2. Yes it maybe cool to chirp them from time to time, but really all you're doing is destroying your tires and potentially other drivetrain parts.

3. No one will give two flying monkeyballs about your smoke machine because they all know you're driving an SPI...

Unless like the one i go to, you have no choice but to go through the water pit. a quick burnout is the only way to get the water out of the tread.
