i have gone back to newbie status with this one -

at the dragway, do you put your front tires in the water box, and do the burnout inside it? or do you roll through it, and do a burnout after you get out?

i have never done a burnout there before, obviously. i have street tires so i just avoid the water. and i never really paid attention to other racers

I usaully try to do my best to go around the water box, and then do a light spin of the tires to get all of dirt and rocks off of them.

Haha, ok gotcha. Most people i see burnout in the water box and then keep the tires spinning as they come out.

On slicks, I used to roll through and immediately do a burnout after. I wouldn't sit in the box burning out unless there was barely any water in it. On street tires, always drive around it.

Some roll thru and burn out. Others do a light spin to wet the entire tire and roll out into a full burn out.

i hear,... on slicks you wanna pull into the water and just burn out, till the slicks pull you out. that's when they are heated up correctly.

I jsut went on my first drag last night, I gues the first time I riced it up a bit, (I had noone to tel me these things :D ) and I did a nice little burnout in the box, then I my second time I did one outside of the box and my time was 2 tenths faster.


MY times are incredibly slow my second time was 16.8 but I have a box with 12's in my trunk, and I have suspension, intake, and exhaust. I also believe I'm leaking a bit from my header, so that is my next mod, so I want to be a little quicker. :)
