Drag Racing On Automatic / Burning Tires


Recommended Posts

Hi ,

Looking for general advice.

Do you guys ever practice "power braking" (pressing accelerator and brakes simultaneously) in order to engage wheelspin prior for off line acceleration?

I tried but very slightly - reached 2000 rpm with sligthly pressed brakes (just to keep car off from starting)

I noticed rear wheels started spining. I didn't experiment further as i am afraid to damage my beloved car.

Any comments on this?

Can i ruin torque converter or automatic gearbox by doing that?

Stas

'93 SC 400

The manuver is refered to as brake tourquing, its the best way to produce tire smoke and tire squeeling. The higher you rev the engine and the longer you do it, the more parts you might break, always make sure the trac. cont. is switched off. :geek: p.s. we all have auto. trannies

Stock Sc400's are all automatics, but not all Sc300's are auto's :)

I stand corrected, I was refering only to the sc400. Back to the guys orig. question, of coarse a reason to be brake torquing is the purpose of heating the tires for more traction during a drag race. I am supposing you have a type of tire that would benefit from being heated. :unsure:
