Drag racing burn outs using street tyres

PostPost by: stevebroad » Mon Jul 15, 2013 9:51 pm

Reading the section on burnouts in Drag Racing Basics by Cindy Crawford (no, not that one!) I came across this:

If you are driving on drag radials, do not go through the water box. Go around it. Sometimes you can back up towards the water box, but do not go into it, and do a quick burn out there.

If you are driving on regular street tyres, go around the water box. With street tyres it is not necessary to do a burn out.

Any comments?
