Question Can you spinn the tires in 2nd gear on the street

Okay, this might be dumb but I know when I am at the track lots of guys roast the tires in second gear. I know you can do it at the track if you have bad traction, I'm not saying thats a good thing! Here's the thing. I have a friend with a 5.0 Ranger. The truck can easly spinn the tires in a 1-2 gear peel. It has no weight in the back. I've seen 01' GTs spinn 1st to 2nd in a peel because they rev faster than a push rod engine. A loser in a stock I-Roc says he can do 1st to 2nd and leave 20 feet or so of second. I think it is bull because it is a stock P.O.S. Can a 5.0 spinn 2nd in a peel. I know chirping is easy. This is a dumb question I'm sorry:o Oh ya on dry pavement too.

See the thing is I'm 17 and my buddys are 16 and we like to leave our marks around town with out getting cought. This is all an "If you can do it I can do it better" thing. Ok you are probably going to move this again to "War Stories". But it really isn't a war story. I know you guys like to leave rubber like the next guy. It's just a dumb question thats all.

I'm going to move this on over to the 5.0 lounge, I think it fits better over there.

As for spinning tires, yes, I can spin them at will and don't stop spinning until i let off.

Although some of us don't prefer to smoke the tires on the street (tires aren't cheap), my stang stock with some mild mods, stiffer suspension, and 17 inch wheels and tires could even chirp 3rd. With this new engine, my dad actually got it to chirp 4th (no wieght in the back end either). The main mods with the new engine are on my sig.... it spins 2nd gear easy now.

Okay, I'm thinking that my car has no "Nuts" now. I have to add that I'm not working with many mods only the ones I have listed. I have no MAJOR mods. I'm pritty sure that you guys have stuff like heads, cams, intakes and TBs. Of course you guys got gears.

If I want to do it I just mash the gas faster than I would normally and dump it quick, or the normal rev it and pop it. If I go to 3 grand in first and mash it i can spinn them alittle but they don't leave any marks, but you can hear it. So if you guys are looking at my mods what would you guys do next.
