I was running my heat race and there was a lot of rain the week leading up to the race so we had a wet track. I noticed the car infront of me, the guy who always kicks bu_t, and only one of his tires was throwing a rooster tail. Our track is always dry-slick even in the heat so there is rarely any rooster tails. Is there any way to have a locked rearend (9" ford) and throw a rooster tail out of one side on a wet track.

If he is running alot of stager, going down the straight away, the rr will be turning faster than the lr ( that why stagger makes the car turn better) so it will spin the rr and hook up the lr ( or drag the lr and hook up the rr.)

Gas on it!

The shorter tire will be turning faster than the taller one.
