Clutch dumping

4.5k RPM + clutch dump with Rubicon tires and axles = ???

Are the axles/rear end strong enough to handle the stress of a clutch dump on pavement?

No "why"s please. Just the facts.

Don't see why not. When teaching my daughter to drive standard, she probably came close a few times.

It's just that I was told by someone that the heavier tires and wheels would put more strain on the differential and axles and would break something. I'm pretty sure the Rubicon equipment is strong enough to handle a few skids. I think he was just full of .

It's a lot like a garbage dump but, it's just for old clutches.

I never heard it called that. Popping, but never dumping.

New clutches know how to dump.

Tom, we all popped ours!

I was on slightly wet pavement yesterday and I popped mine leaving a patch trying to beat the car next to me behind. Made some nice screeching noise and I blew off of the stop and beat the other car to the place where two lanes became one......sweet...

Yeah, I'm part of the popping generation. Used to do it with Chevelles and GTO's, not Wranglers. I would like to see it and get a good

Living in the southeast, it was always dumping the clutch. Popping was when you stalled out. Might be a regional thing.

You can do it, but considering how much technology went into designing the vehicle not to loose traction you might not want to. But that's just my 2 cents. I didn't buy a wrangler for speed or burning rubber, I have my GSXR and my harley for that department.

Southeast here and never heard it called dumping the clutch. Always popping to do burn outs. Maybe it's a generation thing.

As long as this is turning into a poll, I've always called it popping the clutch.

I've also done it with my JK on wet pavement.

If you've come from a drag racing background, you've heard them all, unfortunately you've also experienced the bad ones

When I had manuals I would regularly take a dump in them. Never had a problem. Had to turn off traction control to get a good dump though.

Man, if I had to run out to the jeep to turn off traction control every time I wanted to take a "good dump", I would be in some deep $h*t

(sorry, but YOU tee'd that one up...haha)

I'm sure it can handle it. I had the opportunity to dump/side step/hole shot/pop/etc. more than a few clutches in my day. I've dumped them at speeds much greater than 4,500 rpm. I've done it with traction controll on and off as well to see what happens. LOL

In Texas, we all called it dumping the clutch, I've never heard popping... That sounds like less of clutch maneuver and more of an exhaust malfunction Given, those were ricers. As far as can the rubicon handle it... I've only done it once, I didn't think about turning off traction control. It just bit and sank in the back while the front flexed up and accelerated rapidly. Never tried it again but it didn't damage anything either.

If you had a duster near new, that's dating yourself!

That would make you an old fart....if my math is right.

And if you were old when the duster was around, you would be ancient now.

I am an old fart - not a dead one though. It was a 1974 Plymouth Gold Duster. Bought it 1977 26K miles - 2400 bucks and wished I still had it. When I gave it away, and I did to a young couple, had 210K miles. If I can find a picture of it I will post just for you. Oh crap, I am out of geritol and depends. Hope the hovercraft has had time to charge. Lol

Got me on the surprise ending on that post.

My dad had a duster, can't remember what year but in that era. He sold it to my sister who drove it until the suspension gave in while she was on the road with it. Fortunately going slow. Don't know how many miles it made but we drove the hell out of it. Now where did I put my baby aspirin and celebrex. Don't depend on depends yet.

I had a 1970 Duster with a slant 6 and 3 speed on the floor.

I had one. It was my first car and was a 318 one of Chrysler's best motors. I think I put 240K on mine before I traded mine in. Loved that car. The rear seat folded down and you could go from the trunk into the car. Had my 8 track in it and still can hear Juke Box Hero when I think about it.
