Re: spinning 245s

umm, My eb when it was N/A had no problems in smoking up both 245's, they were recaps.

It has a bit more of a struggle with the 225's but they are way stickier, but with an electric line lock, it would not have a problem. Its just that it requires a lot of brake pedal to keep the front still, and the engine and trans have to overcome this
