One tire burn-outs are done by the passengers side tire - right? I am just double checking before I mount my battery on that side of the trunk.

I think passenger side... Not 100% sure though, but I can tell you an easy way to check /forums/images/icons/wink.gif.

From a stoplight, if I lay into the pedal, both of my tires spin...

You have a trac-loc... W/ an open differential only one spins.

I guess that's a good thing?

Normally, only the passenger will spend. If I get on mine enough, though, it will eventually have both spinning /forums/images/icons/cool.gif. I'm no rear end expert, but am told that's normal even with an open rear.

If you have an open differential, the right side (passengers)tire will be the one spinning, or smoking depending on your torque output ;)

My old "Boss 429" had the battery mounted in the trunk, on the pass/side. When I used to drag race, used the same thory, off set the drivers weight.

Hahah, yeah my little 6-cylinder won't smoke them, but it'll spin them like crazy for sure.

You might have to solve that "One tire spin" thing, hehehe.
