I have my burnout limiter set at 6500. I didn't use one with the small block, but the 522 goes right to the 7800 limit if I don't catch it quick....

going to check dia. of each tire. they are new but that doesen't mean much.gona check anyway. going to the track wed.gona put stripe on tire take some pic see what going on at launch.rpms come up quick i shift very quick and nail it, hold it long as i can and let off brake ,but never any smoke. don't see how they are geting hot enought. it does raise front tires most of the time, maybe is enought.
thanks Dale

Did I read that right? 4 seconds in low then shift? My entire burnout, from the time I nail the throttle until I'm back at idle is just over 3 sec, high gear only. I'm pretty sure the problem is you're staying in low WAAAY too long. You really need to shift as soon as the tires spin or just burn out in high to get enough tire speed to make smoke, much less stay straight. Keep it short.....JMO

never realy timed are counted to see how long, but feels like that long maybe not. never the less, wed. will try nailing it from the get go, shift soon as comes on light,which will be instantly, just let her eat and see.
