1995 Ford Ranger - Dual Wheel Burnout/Whole Shot?

My friend claims his two wheel drive Ford Ranger (1995) can do a burnout/wholeshot with two wheels. Is this true? I've been asking around and no one but him says that it's possible with this truck. Another friend even emailed Rizzo Ford and said it wasn't possible. Now he says that Rizzo was wrong and everyone else was wrong, and that it can, and he's seen it/done it. He says that it has dual driveshafts. Is all of this true?

I'm having a problem understanding what it is your saying.
Is the truck a 4 wheel drive, smoking the front and rear tire's?
Or is it a 2 wheel drive with a "Duelie" converstion?
Or a 2 wheel drive and he's smoking both rear tire's?
If it's a 2 wheel it can indeed be smoking both rear tire's.
With an open style rear axle, if one rear tire spin's enough the opposite rear tire will try to engage and can start to spin also.
Or he has one of the factory installed "Posi" unit's that people say doesn't exist. I'm telling you that they do exist. My 92 has one.

When in doubt :DON'T

It's two wheel drive, and Rizzo ford said that on these trucks only one wheel was powered at a time.

"Rizzo" told you wrong. A "posi" unit has been availabe in the "Ranger" since 1989. Think about it. It's the same 7.5 rear axle that's used in the Mustang

Yes, but he doesn't have a posi unit.

Tongue Lmao!

Dual Driveshafts on a RWD Truck? Um, sorry, I'm calling B.S. on that. And besides that, didn't ALL 89 - newer rangers come with posi's, whether you wanted it or not? I dont know about the second part, that was just a thought, my '99 has posi and it's nothing out of the ordinary compared to other rangers. But about the dual driveshafts... lol...

I was thinking that, but I've never seen the other wheel spin before. He says he's only done it when we weren't there, but if he had a posi, both wheels would always spin. Also, only one tire is worn from burnouts, not both.

Then you need to put two and two together bud, he's lying. If it's not posi, then he's lying about both tires spinning off the line. As far as the dual driveshafts, I can't believe anybody would be dumb enough to say that, thatd involve dual rear ends, two output shafts at the tranny... definately not the most efficient set up ever.

To put it simply, no, he can not do a two wheel spin. Seeing is believing. The proof is in what he said - he can only do it when you're not there. You dont have to be there for him to record it...

Re: 1995 Ford Ranger - Dual Wheel Burnout/Whole Shot?

hey if its any help to you i have a 97 2wd 4cyl with a flowmaster and a k&n full CAI and only one wheel spins on a bur out but some times 2 wheels will spin at the same time, never in a brake stand though i was on a dirt road and from a stop a gave it a good amount of gas and i looked behind me and saw two fresh tire marks from me so i guess only under those circumstances 2 tires will spin but they wont in a brake stand, also the limited slip comes in handy i was driving and one side of the road was a layer of ice and the other was dry while going 30 the tire on the icy side spun while the dry side kept good traction.
i know i kind of rambled on but i hope this helps.

Re: 1995 Ford Ranger - Dual Wheel Burnout/Whole Shot?

The only thing that would make sense about "dual driveshafts" is front and rear on a 4WD-and you said his was a 2WD. I don't believe any of it. I knew a guy in high school who claimed he could shift his manual transmission on his Jeep while in forward motion into reverse and spin the tires backwards. When I asked for a demonstration, of course he couldn't do it for me as it was "too hard on the transmission." It was all BS as this is impossible and I think this is as well. Unless he has a posi as other stated here.
