Tech Tip of the month:

"Master the art of burn-outs"
Doing burn-outs correctly is very important in terms of performance and engine/transmission/drive train reliability. Most top competitors have mastered the burn-outs that effectively heat the tires for maximum traction without punishing their cars.
  • Do not prolong the burn-out to where the engine is allowed to be "pulled down" when the tires recover and gain traction.
  • Do not make a short, smoky burn-out leaving a film of water on the tires followed by a hard, dry burn-out.
  • Do not perform a non-smoking spin through the water followed by hard dry burn-outs.
  • Do a moderately wet burn-out just long enough to heat the tires and burn off any water.
  • Back off the throttle before the tires recover.
  • Leave the burn-out box in high gear.
