When I had my FED, I did'em in high. In fact, I've done high gear only burnouts in every racecar I've owned.....from an 11 second doorcar to my current 8 second Vette roadster. IMO, most cars that run 12 seconds or quicker could do high gear burnouts......

Make sure you got a good wet tire, stick it in high gear and have it 8)

Sometimes a guy that does not use a 3-step that feathers thru a burn out sounds like they are shifting in the water as they snap the throttle to get the tire spinning and then come down to their burnout RPM.
