    I have a stock 2004 Tahoe 5.3 4x4 and it is not able to do a burnout with 2WD.

    But if to disable rear brakes or add line lock, would it be able to do a burnout? Has anyone tried it?

    Juuuust curious but, why would you want to? The LS motors have enough torque to do it, but the trans is the weak link in the drivetrain, especially if the miles are up there.

    How high did you rev the motor with your foot on the brake?

    Hey @swathdiver remember doing burnouts in the GN? I could smoke them for days. What a beautiful sight.

    Certainly! 3rd gear burnouts were a blast! The whole lower end of the quarter panel coated with rubber after a Friday night out on the town...

    We have an event called American Beauty Car Show in July and there is a big car parade in the end, where most of the cars are doing burnouts for the crowd.

    I do not think that I have a traction control, but I think that I have LSD. The milage is around 200 000. When I tried the burnout I reved the motor up to 3000 I think and as the wheels were not starting to spin, I became sorry for the transmission. My idea is, when the rear brakes are not on, than it would be easier to spin the wheels and the load to transmission should be lower also.
