Ok so this isnt a thread bragging about my times on a quarter mile but it does involve drag racing.

So just tonight I was at a stop light just sitting there minding my own business and not harassing anyone around me for once. Well this little POS honda pulls up and about a second or two later starts reving up his little fart cannon he calls an exhaust. So I was like "Ah hell are you serious?" So once it turned green we both took off and I pulled away because the jackass missed a gear and I didnt since I have an automatic. Well I just floored it once it turned green. Didnt spool up the turbo or anything because I have only had it for about a month and I have never done that before. Wasnt quite sure how.

So thats my question. How do I spool up the turbo on an automatic? I know retarded question
Input would be great so next time I can do it and really dust some balls haha

flipping it back in 2WD after launch has been done has been know to strip out the hubs over a period of time. I will not hurt to leave them in 4HI with your hubs in the "Automatic" position because they are designed to slip a little. This is why they do not break the front end parts. The older trucks were the ones you don't drive on asphalt with. when launching your first time in 4HI you will have to hold on that brake really hard but make sure you roll a few feet at idle to make sure they are engaged if not they might engage right after you take off and then your back shaft is moving faster then your front and might strip your hubs and make some god awfull noises. OH YEA make sure you are resting your head in the head rest when you do it. It could hurt. Make sure your dog is not in the bed of your truck
