BURNOUT PROCEDURES
 
Water Burnouts (Smokey Burnouts)
 
Tyre development brought about the need to get tyres hot in order to get maximum traction. This started the use of water to get tyre speed up quickly. Now tyres are getting hot, but automatic transmissions are subject to destruction if not careful!
 
 
Please read carefully the following suggestions for your transmission
 
GM Powerglide Transmissions
Water burnouts will not hurt units, except if you are shifting from low to high as you are comming out of the water. Shifting under conditions stated will cause premature clutch wear. Suggest deceleration as you come out of the water or power burnout to the line being sure the tyres never grab the pavement.
 
GM Turbo Hydro 350 & 400 Transmissions
All water burnouts suggest starting in first or second, but get into high gear before coming out of the water. Normally Turbo Hydros do not have roller clutch trouble, except occasionally in the Turbo "350", but for durability reasons it will pay to follow the suggestion as stated for preventative maintenance. Beu sure to decelerate as you come out of the water or power burnout to the line being sure the tyres never grab the pavement.
 
Ford C4 & C6 Transmissions
All water burnouts should be started in second gear and shift to third if necessary. If you should start burnout in first, shift immediately to second gear before tyres com out of the water. No matter whether it be second or third gear you are in, as you come out of the water, you should start to decelerate eingine or do a power burnout directly to the staging line being sure the tyres never grab the pavement. The power burnout  provides the best E.T.'s of no dry burnouts are done. No matter if you have a trans-brake or not, we suggest not doing a dry burnout!
Note:- Rear End Breakage and Driveshaft Breakage: If rear end or driveshaft breaks while in first gear acceleration or burnout, remove transmission and check rear roller clutch for damage.
 
Chrysler/American Motors 727 & 904 Tranmissions
All water burnouts should be started in second gear and shift to third if necessary. If you should start burnout in first, shift immediately to second gear before tyres come out of water. No matter whether it be second or third gear you are in as you come out of the water, you should start to decelerate engine or do a power burnout directly to the staging line being sure the tyres never grab dry pavement. the power burnout provides the best E.T.'s if no dry burnout is done. No matter if you have a trans-brake or not, we suggest not doing dry burnouts!
Note:- Rear End Breakage and Driveshaft Breakage: If rear end or driveshaft breaks while in first gear acceleration or burnout, remove transmission and check rear roller clutch for damage.
