The bet, making an xf wheel stand

I placed a small wager against a friend of mine that I could get my XF Spac to wheel stand on take off, what sort of engine mods and work would be required to do this and how much money would it take

Re: The bet, making an xf wheel stand

make a switch to cut off your brake lines to the rear end. AND there you have it.

dangerous though.. and stupid.

It won't be very cheap. I'd agree with rod and you'll probably need a 9" to gears of that ratio and at least a 4000 rpm stall converter to pop a 6 into the air.

Expect to pay about $2500 for the diff and about $500 for the stallie.

I want pics if you ever get it happening!

Just like a Tsunami.

Stick the engine in the boot along with about 4 people... that should do it.
