Don't do a burnout on street tires, you're wasting your time. Street tires actually lose traction when heated due to the rubber used in radial tires. If you're working with slick compound, then yes heat them up. Slicks become stickier when hot, the opposite of a street tire. Also, going through the water with street tires is just going to get water trapped inside the grooves that will make you spin off the line even worse.[/QUOTE]

see i have always heard tha you dont have to heat your streets, but the track i go to you have no way around the wter puddle so i go thru the water fast, stop and burn out just to get the water off or i just spin forever.
