are the front tires rolling or sliding? got a friend that thought his was rolling thru, i watched it on the line and saw that it was sliding the tires. had him drop his rpms on the footbrake and it quit sliding them. now he runs a transbrake 8) . wider fronts tend to not slide as much as there is more surface on the pavement.

I pump the shit out of the brake pedal and hit the line lock. As soon as the cars up on the tires I let off the line lock and smoke it on down the track.

I've seen some drivers "roll" into the throttle when doing a burn-out and they would slide the front tires. When I do a burn-out I hit the throttle hard and break the tires loose. It usually stays in the burn-out alot better! JMO
