Having been married all of my adult life, I would advise you that it is not a good idea to scare the hell out of your wife, not if you ever want her to endorse your hobby.

As far as a bucket goes, here is all the info you'll ever need and it's all in one place.

Driving that thing with a locked rear end will definitely scare anyone in or around that thing.

I agree..... Lose the spool. They're dangerous on the street.
