A Line Lock is your friend.
I just spin a little in the water box then pull up & hit the line lock & do a burnout in 1st gear.
I will try that this spring when I start to race.!st gear will kill a set of springs and rods, not enough tire speed for the rpm made. start in 2nd and shift to high as quick as it will pull it. :rock:
Well said. Don't do burnouts from 1st to second gear in a turbo 350 trans.:axe:Roll through the water box, get the tires wet but make try not to get any up in the wheel wells because it will drip down on the tire at the line. Start the burnout in 2nd gear and quickly shift to high because it will give you more wheel speed without putting the engine on the rev limiter. You can decide how much of a show you want to put on, but it doesn't take a lot of smoke to get the tires ready, I think it just wastes the tire. Let go of the line loc, let the car move ahead and gently lift off the throttle. Try and do the exact same thing every time to be as consistant as possible.
It's easier to do than explain....hope this helps you out.
