dont go into the water box unless you want to fire the ---- out of your tires to burn/get the water out.. and it still doesnt get it all...


if you wanna burn off all the rubber on your tires go through the waterbox... radial tires work better cold anyways... heat is their enemy...

Just watch what the people ahead of you do, and then do that. Don't be the DIPSHIT who has no idea how to stage. I've seen people drive right up and past the staging guys and just go right down the track. No lights. No timer. No nothing. Those people get laughed off the track.

If your car is slow, know it. Don't rev, speed or show off in the parking lots and return road. Everyone already thinks your an ------- for driving a foriegn car, don't give them more reasons.

And you come back on the return road, not the track. I've never seen that, but I've heard it happens.

Burnout box is a matter of preference. If you have regular tires, it's probably a waste of time/money.
