You may not know this.....but when you go through tech and the tech guys ask what you are going to run, just say 12's [Eek!] [Razz] THEN, when they kick you out for going 11's worry about a roll bar [Big Grin]

People have different oppinions on how the best way to use a DR is. For the most part, everyone at least agrees on using the water box before your burnout, (easier on the clutch, expecially when doing 2nd gear burnouts). The part that most people can't agree on is the length of the burnout. I prefur a mild to mid length smoking of the tires myself. Seems to work for me. [Smile]

Yeah Like what Drew said, everybody has there own thing about the DR's. With me after awhile water gets pulled out of the box so depending if the box is super dry or super wet sometimes I don't back in all the way I just back far enough to get into the water that was pulled out of the water box from other people.

That's what I do... I never go INTO the box with DRs except in my C5 because it had weird issues with TQ managment and had trouble spinning the tires so i had to get em good and wet.
