    i cannot get a smoke show at all with my bf t/a drag radials. i know i do the burn out on the wet spot where they hose it down and then stage but do i do it after the wet spot too where its dry and then stage? bf t/a drag radials sucks balls and its a waste of my money.

    well when you launch are you spinning the tires, or are you hooking up?

    there is no reason to heat them unless you have bad tire spin off the line...

    and perhaps you just need a stickier tire... i would advise investing in some tire softener... and then buy insurance for your axles...

    lol- don't go in the water box with those things. they don't need to be heat cycled before a launch. that water box is for real slicks.
