Default No water burnout

Do not do a water burnout with street tires. Most successful street tire racers drive around the water box and do a short tire cleaning in front of the box, that means only about five revolutions or less. Do not heat the tires before the pass, they get greasier with heat.

What Bruce said. That and you can't dry out the grooves in a tire with tread.
