It's got the power, but why do you want to do it?

You need to brace the rear if you're planning on that.


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17

If you start doing ad hoc burnouts with a line lock, you're going to blow your rear differential without support.

Not your car, just your differential, ujoints and driveshaft.
