    Been to the track 2x's now.....im still learning how to do a proper burnout....1st time at the track i didnt heat them up enough.......2nd time at the track i put effort into it.....it never really gets smokey....i put the car in sport, gas it...i let it shift into 2nd while doing the burnout....it seems 10-15 seconds.....but still not working

    i spin too much off the line....im at 11.6.......im told im still not heating them up enough...i need to see tons of smoke.....i stay in the water box during the burnout....some say to roll out of the water box, then spin the tires...

    im going to the track again this weekend......shooting for low 11's

    What Nittos? I run NT05R drag radial and I still don't go through the water box. I have the PSI set at 19 and do a 3 to 5 second burnout

    You got the 315's on stock rims or you got different rims?

    I have 2 sets of rims but run the Drag radials on the stock rims. My second set of rims are 11" wide for rear and I run the 315 NT05 on those for daily.

    Got it. So it looks like I'm gonna have to get different rims to put the 315's on

    My NT05 fit a lot nicer on the aftermarket 11" rim than the NT05r,s on the stock rim.

    Ya I bet, my cousin had the 315 NT05R on his cts-v and the rim is 9.5 inches wide on the cts-v also and he said that the tire formed a belly after a while because the rim is too small

    Definitely need to roll out of the water box. When you finish your burnout, your tires should be dry and hot. 3-5 seconds burning out should get you there if your not in standing water.
    edited to add.... Let the car roll forward slightly as you are burning out. You'll hear a change in tire squeal as they dry out and heat up.

    huggytree I'll give you a first hand demo Saturday when we go.. my technique is good enough for a 1.58 60' and a 2.9 0-60mph, so I must be doing something right.

    I run 555's and my burnouts produce very little smoke. I run 18psi, roll through the water, do a 3-4 second burnout at about 2500rpm's and roll out about 20 feet to hear my distinctive sticky chirp. I stage at 2000-2500rpm depending on the prep. Make sure you're in the groove. I usually hook well after that routine. Too long a burnout will just make them greasy.

    Caveat emptor - Not all tracks prep worth a damn, some not at all on Test N Tune nights.
