In heavily monitored testing and feedback to Mickey Thompson...

(The crowd likes burn outs. Blower Cars are Louder. Hey Mickey Thompson we need some more tires since they work really well. 4.45 1/8 7.03 1/4)

I find a nice 150+ mph burnout allows me to put a hurting on the guy in the lane next to me...

Your mileage may vary...

I've just got a slow piece of shit, but in my experience in my car, spin them once in the water, pull ahead, get them lit, get it into high gear as soon as possible, hold around 4000 RPM until I see the first hint of smoke, then roll out. ET Drags.

That's a cool vid. Burnouts are half the fun for me, so I let em eat pretty good. Mine hooks just as good with a quick hazing.

I begin burnout in 2nd, watch rearview for smoke and once I see it I wait a couple seconds before releasing the brake but stay on the throttle until it grabs... Has worked wonders for me

Yes!

You need to have a converter and not a clutch.
