How To: Drag Racing for Beginners
Some people made some good points in the comments, so here are a few more tips: Jeff Wilson - Don't do a burnout until the track staff indicates to do so. Darren Betker - What is the average cost per run? A: In my experience it can be as little as $10/15 on a regular test and tune night, $35 on a day, or more if you choose to participate in a track rental. It really varies and your best bet would be to look it up before you go. Today, we get down to the basics of drag racing if you're new to the sport.

How to BURNOUT - This EPIC Instructor Teaches You Everything You Need to do a Burnout in ANY Car
http://tailhappytv.com/how-to-do-a-burnout This legendary instructor is about to teach you everything you need to know on how to burnout like a... well, you'll see. In this video, each of the fundamental steps of how to do a burnout will be taught, as well as what not to do. There are a few common mistakes that people make when attempting to do a burnout in a car, and I want to make sure you avoid these potentially car damaging errors. In my video that teaches how to burnout, the first thing I explain is the traction control settings and how you will want the traction systems set to burn rubber. I then teach you how to drop the clutch in a manual transmission to do a burnout. Make sure that when you drop the clutch the RPM's are high enough to get the wheels spinning, and be 100% sure that the clutch hooks up and is not slipping. After the clutch hooked up and the wheels are spinning, press on the brake hard enough to keep the car stopped or moving at a slow crawl. Make sure you don't press the brake so hard that the drive wheels stop spinning and the clutch spins. There is a big difference in terms of smell, and cost of labor/parts to replace a set of tires vs replacing a clutch. After the tires are spinning and you are doing a burnout in your car, make sure you don't smoke the tires too long. I point out a few things that can potentially go wrong when doing a burnout, such as the tires popping, the brakes heating up, and the tires hooking up and launching you forward after you let off the brake. If your tires are in bad condition and you burn them too long, they could pop and cause serious damage to your car or even potentially injure a bystander. If the brakes get too hot they could not only wear significantly, but they could also catch on fire and lead to more problems than you were asking for. When you want to end the burnout, you can let off the gas and keep your foot on the brake and/or press in the clutch to take the power away from the wheels so you don't launch forward or send the cause veering off course and crash. Make sure you are aware that the engine won't be able to cool down as well as if you are driving fast. Wind will not be entering the engine bay under the hood to blow all that smokin' engine heat out of there and give the components a chance to cool down.
