I was in a empty parking lot today and decided I was going to do a small burnout for my wife, but only one wheel left rubber! I dont do burn outs that often but I do remeber the last one I did a few months back layed rubber on both sides! Whats the problem?

Its crazy to think the clutches in the rear could be worn in a `02 GT , being only a few years old ,and the fact that dallas02GT does not do burnouts that often , but Im going with you on this one , they have to be worn !

dallas02GT how many miles do you have on your mustang ?

I have 59,300. The last burn out I did is with my stock wheels and tires on and it layed rubber on both sides. I now have 17x10.5 with 315/35/17 Nitto 555 R's. This is the first time I really layed into it with intensions of leaving rubber on the ground. I am kinda getting freaked out over it because I am hearing a winding sound from my car and it sounds like its coming from under the hood but my buddy thinks its from the rear end.

well, both wheels are not guaranteed to spin, but they should. Unless, the one wheel that didn't spin was stuck in a crack on the pavment and the traction lock discs spun more easily then the tire. Hard to explain.

A clutch pack is not a big deal to put in the rear end

I have heard the factory clutches are not very good anyways, lasting 20k - 30k miles. Mine started slipping at 43k and I hardly ever did burnouts, however, I can't speak for the previous owner and I don't think he was very kind to the car.

If you turned right before you started doing the burnout, that may be the reason you only left a one legger... It happened to me before... Or the clutches are worn out.

doing lots of burnouts has nothing to do with the clutchs wareing out...they slip when you turn a corner......and age means nothing ether iv seen fairly new rears with worn out clutchs...they can just harden or glaze sometimes...when i rebuild a factory locker i allways add 1 more fiber disc to each sideand reshim the pack to get longer life and increased force

More than likely it was just a fluke. Have you tried to do it again since? You may be surprised to see both wheels spinning again. If not, then the clutches are probably worn. In my opinion, I would spend the money on an aftermarket unit rather than trying to rebuild the crappy factory unit. You can get a better Eaton posi unit or eliminate clutches all together and get a Detroit True-Trac. The Detroit uses gears instead of clutches. Stronger and longer lasting.
