    Burnout contest question

    Not sure if this is the place for this but.....our club has a burnout contest coming up at a local track. My question is, is there anything I can put down that will smoke more than water? I have BFG 275/60R's on the rear, a linelock, 468, 4sp,4.10 gears, if it matters. Thanks

    I know the old uniroyal tiger paws were smoke machines back in the day and they were cheap too. not sure if there still around? might want to check with a local tire shop.

    otherwise I saw in a magazine a couple times a tire that smoked RED smoke instead of white. somebody else might know the brand of this one?

    yeah once it goes kaboom there is nothin' you can do about it so as much as it sucks for money and time lost it don't pay to dwell on it so might as well laugh even if ya feel like crying. Sorta like that picture of the old race car where the crankshaft is bouncing off the pavement under the car...lol

    Kumho makes tires that smoke red and blue. They also have tires with scented smoke. They are VERY expensive though.

    Here are the scented ones:

    Blue Smoke:


    Pretty neat, but way out of my budget!
