What is your suspension telling you if you do a light burnout and it spins, do the same and wait 2-4 minutes then stage and it hooks better..

I don't think the wait had anything to do with it unless you're doing too much of a burnout to start with and the slicks worked a little better after they cooled off some. If you're referring to this past weekend I heard the track temp was way high and that is probably a factor.

It was after Dark when it happened Chuck. It had happened before as well. My thinking the suspension is killing the tires on the burnout, then they get too hot and dont work well.
Maybe this weekend I will just roll them over and see what happens.
Not sure since I try to do light burnouts already...

What tires do you run Jody?
I just read an article about M/T tires in relation to a very hot track(over 120 deg.) When the track is very hot, you don't need much of a burnout at all if running M/T tires, and if track is cooler, do a little more burnout to get the heat up higher, but the track temp is a key issue along with tire psi. Good luck.
