Burnout Contest

There is a Cruise/carshow/burnout contest/ mudbog coming up next month that I'll be going to.
Ive been to the past few years, but this year Im entering in the burnout contest.
I know there are threads on here about tips on showing in carshows, but this one is for the real men.
Im entering my 85' corvette in the stock class for this. Any body got any tips or advice? Like how to get more smoke from my tires?


Brad

the wider the tire, the more rubber will burn, to make more smoke people use clorox with the water but many competitions do not allow the use of clorox BUT, that would be pouring it on the tire there, or on the ground and burning on that. westlys tire bleach has clorox and a few other nice chemicles that aid in burnouts right in it, clean your tires b4 you burn them off.

Because thats nothing compared to the daily abuse it gets
So I figured it could handle a couple burnouts just fine

Want to impress? Install a proportioning valve on the rear brake line (to catch both rears) and when it is your turn, close it off and lock down the fronts and burn em til they pop. You can feather the front brakes and do all sorts of neat, crowd pleasing, things.

Use a cheap soft rubber tire like Pepboys Futuras,smoke like a bastard.Dig through the junkyard for a pair of soft tires with some treads left,on wheels with your bolt pattern so you don't have to pay for mounting on an old set that will be trash in the end anyways.

I installed a line lock on the front disk brakes for that very thing.Love to do those burn outs.I added a powertrax locker and 4.56 gears for this years burn out contest.I sprayed turtle wax brand wet and black on the side walls for protection for the side wall and spray it directly on the tread about a block away before lining up for burn out contest.It seems to add to the smoke and cleans off the tread in the car wash after the show. ENJOY yourself and raise a big cloud for the crowd.

They may have not been the most desirable years but they were OK for the time. Don't trash someone else's car just because you don't happen to like it.

I started this thread for tips on better burnouts and for better smoke shows. Not to here people talk bad about my car.
If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all

Is there any rules you need to fallow? If not take your windshield washer jug and empty it, take the hose going from the ww pump to wiper nozzles off and run extra long hose back to the rear wheels, then fill the ww tank full of bleach, use your ww motor to pump bleach out on top of your tires. Let the smoke fly The bleach will make more smoke and make the tires spin easier.

I thought about that before steve, but its against the rules.
I forgot about posting the rules for this contest
There are 2 lines in the street. As soon as my tires leave the first is when time starts, and time ends when I cross the other line (about 10 yards) or when the time limit is up which is 10 seconds I think.
I have 2 runs and they judge the better run. I can have them spray down my tires with water from a pressure water if I want to, but I am not allowed to spray or put anything else on my tires.
They are also VERY strict about the safety stuff to. Like if I don't stop after the time limit or go to far past the second line, I'll be disqualified.
The cool thing about it though is, this is the only time Ive ever seen an entire Police Department cheering on the burnouts!
