Brake stands?? 4x4 Launch??

Ok..first off I don't street race or do anything for attention while I'm out and about (wish I had my old train horns). But sometimes just for the hell of it I like to get on the go pedal. I'm a Mustang nut and have owned/raced my fair share (5 stangs). I wasn't really worried about the abuse these cars could take but am concerned about stuff like this in my truck. I read the race forum on here and it piqued my curiousity just how safe it was to do a brake stand or launch while in 4x4, how safe is it to go (MPH) in 4x4 hi? My truck is all stock w/ 160k miles. I'd like to do a tuner (SCT) but scared I'll break the thing.

Good luck with a 4wd brake stand. Mainly I would wory about axle wrap it can kill ujoints, tcasees, ale yokes etc.

Who would do a 4wd brake stand (as in spinning the tires, in a truck)? So everything I've read about people drag racing and getting the jump by using 4x4 is a bad idea. Gotcha!

A lot of guys do boosted launches in 4x4, and all will run the 1/4 mile runs in 4x4 high. There are a lot of trucks on here with a lot more power than just an SCT provides running 4x4 launches every weekend without issue...

nothing wrong with boosting in 4x4 and running a quarter mile in 4x4 high... I went to the track 2 days ago and spun all 4 tires about 75ft down the track then caught and went. ( i boosted to high i think)....As long as you dont boost at any crazy numbers your ok... I think the max ive gone was 25 pounds but that even spun the tires a little...you will be ok just remember....ford built tough thats what i say anyway while going down the track haha

I've only done 2 boosted launches and only 1 real hard one(15psi) and dear god you better hang on!

I had an 03 Cobra so i'm not new to horsepower, but when it chirped all 4 tires and took off it was INSANE. I wasnt worried about breaking anything either, just try it and see what happens, if it breaks that means it needed an upgrade!

Launch between 12 and 15 PSI. Once you hit 15, you'll just burn all 4 tires until you back off. It's a real kick in the arse if you get a little over 12.

I've done it a bunch of times on extreme tunes and never hurt anything yet. Of course, I'll be saying that until the trans drops out the bottom of the truck. LOL

in a less than sober state, i launched against my buddy's 05 Jeep Grand Cherokee w/ Hemi (AWD). I didn't get out and lock in the hubs manually (heat of the moment), I just flipped the switch on the dash to 4wd High, boosted it up, and went.

this was a bad idea, as the next time i went to manually lock the hubs in, I could barely twist them. I have a feeling my fronts are now permenantly locked in....

I should also mention I'm running a Bully Dog Tuner, intake, and straight piped exhaust with 35's on my stock 18s.

damn it
