    First off, you shouldn't be getting on it and trying to do burnouts if you just had the rear end rebuilt. There is a break-in period.

    I don't think your gears have anything to do with that fact that you can't do a burnout. I did burnouts all the time when my car was stock with the stock rear end and 3.42 gear.

    How are you trying to do a burnout anyway? What kind of tires do you run? Is the car driving sluggish or missing at all? How does it shift?

    Do you have the regular Nittos or the drag radials.

    Is your SES light on? If the car feels sluggish, you can try cleaning the MAF and see if the response gets better.

    If you are running DRs, they aren't quite as easy to break loose.

    On my aftermarket rear end the break in period was 500 miles.

    You cannot tell whether the MAF is clean or not by looking at it. Remove it from the vehicle and use CRC MAF cleaner to clean it. Let it fully dry before re-installing it. Just follow the directions on the can.
    It's on jackstands.

    I have 3.73's and a lousy A4 and I could easily burn that size tire up. Probably get a couple feet on the 1-2 shift at wot. There is something wrong but not the gears. Try hitting a Auto Zone or your mecanic and use the code reader it's free at AZ and see if there are codes that may not be setting the light off. Even a dirty MAF shouldn't cause that bad of a power drop but will affect power. Another thing since you have a 98 like me my fuel pump started going out right before 80k and I noticed a power drop. maybe yours is worse than mine was and can put out more than enough just to get the car moving and not produce any real hp. I'm a painter and do some mechanical work but don't know much more than what has cause my 98 issues.

    You can have your fuel pressure reading taken using a pressure gage at the rail. It should read around 58 PSI.
