*Air down the tires to ~28psi
*Adjust rear supsension (if able) to a softer setting to allow the rear end to squat and minimize wheel hop
*Allow the motor to cool down (if able)
*Turn off the Traction Control
*Turn off the A/C; it is a safety hazard to drip down the tracky
*Street tires = avoid the water box. Drag radials/slicks=epic smoky burnouts!
*In-between the water box and the light goose it once or twice to insure any debris or water is removed from the tires.
*Depending on your launching style, stage shallow or deep (I stage shallow)
*Left foot brake while right foot revs up to a MAX of 1500 (anything more and my car wouldn't hold it at the line AND would wheel hop like a ****)
