Default One Wheel Spin?!!

I was at the track last night and on my last pass of the night I had someone watching my burnout and run. It was afterwards I was told that the car was only turning one tire in the burnout box. I know its just a limited slip but has anyone else experienced this "one wheel wonder" effect and what has anyone done to upgrade wise to fix it?

With your limited slip you shouldn't have just 1 wheel spinning unless it is spinning fairly slowly.
What rear end do you have? the torsion or the standard? aka did you get the track pack?
Also maybe both were spinning but only one smoking because it was going faster than the other..
to check you can go do a burnout and look at the marks you leave to see if both are spinning on dry ground.

that may have been the case. they did make the comment that it was just start to "turn" as I came out of the box. thanks for the input! I'll check it out and see what I get.

As for what I have, no track pack or any of that. As far as I know its the standard rear, no torsion
