From all the sources I have read, drag radials don't like a big smokey burnout. Why is it that the fast drag radial guy do a big burnout on them? Took my car to the track for the first time with radials and the new motor. All I can say is I doing something wrong. The car didn't even think sbout hooking up. I tried changing the burn out, but the tires liked a small hazing burn out an no more.
