Proper Burnout for Stock LS3

I've never driven a stick at the strip. To clean the Pirellis, which gear should I use? It doesn't have a line lock.

Thanks!

On stock tires, I drive around the water box and back the rear tires into it. I only do a small burnout to clean any pebbles or debris off the tires, Not a big smoky burnout. 1st gear should be plenty. Heat them up too much and the traction will only get worse.

ya i just do like a 1-2 sec burnout just to roll the tires over a few times to clean them. i get consistant 1.87-1.92. on stock less is more . 1500 rpm drop on the line and go. go around the water as blufin said.

+1....You don't need to warm up street tires. Just clean em off real quick as mentioned above.

I dump the clutch in 2nd gear in the water and roll out around 5k till I get smoke. After a few passes the stock rubber gets pretty sticky, 4000 rpms with a quick slip and I have gone 1.87 60ft with a bunch of 1.9s like this. I do not recomend ever dumping the clutch at the line at any RPM! Watch the videos from orangechevyII on youtube... this will help you get an idea on how to run a 5th gen.

Here's a decent video of a small burnout on stock tires. I know it's not a stock LS3, but it's stil on stock tires and it hasn't changed even though it's now supercharged.
