    Don't warm a street tire, and stay outta the water box on street tires.

    In my opinion I think its fine to warm up street tires just not to much.. just gettem a lil hot... Always aviod the water when you have street tires.. I seen Smitty do it in a 05 GT and ran a 13.3 on streets.. you don't need cheater shoes to dip in the 12's.. tho it does help..

    Warming a street tire makes them slicker.

    Bark them to clean them off, nothing more.

    well i would personally like to thank the guy who posted this up. it may be "old news" to some of you ls1 vets but i've had my car for a little over a year and have only been on the various message boards for several months. this was the first time i've seen or heard about this article. i freaking loved every minute of it and read every word. it put a big smile on my face everytime he mentioned the throngs of mustang guys shitting their pants at the camaro's et. so thank you 9t8z28!

    ps. in the article they mentioned they would be doing a similar test of a stock 02 ss in a later issue. you wouldn't happen to have that one laying around would you?

    Your welcome. I don't think they did another test on an 02'. GM H.T.P. sometimes never keeps their word on test and project they say they will do.
    Yeah, I like how they described how jelous the Mustangs guys got when the Camaro dipped into the 12's.
