who here can/has chirped 3rd gear in there near stock car? (TPI, LS1, LT1, ect)


i dropped the hammer today and by some random act of god i chirped 3rd gear, never did that before :D kicker is my car damn near bone stock - clutch and things like that. plus ive only been driving this car hard for a little more than a month, so im still somewhat of a newb when it comes to driving a powerfull 4/5/6 speed (i drove my dads 2.2 5 speed sonoma for a few months but that doesnt count :D).


NOTE : i didnt put this in a tech section because id like input from all generations/powerplants

Mine chirped 3rd on the test drive...The car is pretty much stock except for cut-out cats (had a bad one) and O2 sims for now....

New tires,6spd and what looks to be the stock shocks on a 130K mile car...

My 99 T/A when I had it (brand new - lemon lawed) would do it, and I got my 93 to do it a few times when it was stock.

not an lt1 or ls1, but my 350tpi/paxton supercharged iroc could chirp third with an auto and 4th post 6 speed swap, on some cheapish 255-50-r16s. My 04 gto can chirp third too. without the traction control on, second gear is more of a burnout than a chirp

Does this count: Bolt on 93 Trans Am with a street twin clutch. I was barking 2nd, 3rd, AND 4th badly. :D

Out of an LT1?? Was it raining or something???


lol Just kidding. :p
Sucka!! :p Actually, it was all clutch. Have you driven a street twin? Buttery smooth but N-A-S-T-Y when it comes to grabbing. Never had wheel hop problems before that clutch either.

I've never driven a street twin. It sounds like my Spec stage 3. It's either on or off.
