where you going?

I might be at GLD tomorrow night, you shouldn't have to do a burnout. My tires get great traction, plus all the VHT they throw down, I'd worry more about standing her up at the line from trying to launch to hard. Try and keep your weight over the front end on the launch.

When I went to 41 I didn't bother doing a burnout. The track will hook as hard as you wanna launch a 600 Besides that, I went for my first time a couple months ago and had more fun racing the f3 then i did racing my old cars.
