yes it can..and if you have an auto it can heat up the trans if you go to long, if your "brake" standing to get the burnout well yes it wears on your brakes.. if you have L/S rear end its really not the best thing for the clutch packs..but ya know what...its fun as hell...

its called gearing most likly he has 3:73's or 4:10's which tends to make them a little easier

Thank you for being one of the three to see this side. Jesus it's a ranger not a mustang, who gives a **** if it will do a burnout.

This is true, but having built a lot of high HP cars always starting with suspension first, they aren't out there lol. You can build some pretty sick 4 links that help massively with traction, but if you have enough power, it won't matter and you will still be sliding around when you lay it down unless you are rocking the ET drags.

I can do burnouts on wet pavement all day long without doing a brakestand. It's jsut that the rear end is so light that you can just floor it and the tires will spin.

It was SO easy to light those tires up when I had em! lmao.. My Kumho's on the other hand stick to the road pretty damn well, and paired with my traction bars- my back end stays planted.

I cant get my 4.0 to spin my tires on pavement not even wet pavement. Dry dirt or gravel its not a problem. In the muckiest of mud it doesn't turn them very well. BUT that could be because 33" TSL and 3.73 gears don't mix well.
