Heating up a Power One...Any burnout tips????

Good morning all,

Need some advice, i know i read somewhere(psychobike i think whick is down) that a michelin power one should be heated up a certain way, and the burn out sequence is something like 7...5...7 ride it out.

Ive also read that they require much of a burn out....turn it over a few times out of the water box and stage..

Looking for advice on burnout tips from those who have used a P1, ima give one more day at the track, and if it doesnt hook today...then ima order a hookup monday morning

thanks in advance.

burnout

higher wheel speed. i always burnout in 2nd, i click up to 2nd while rolling around the water box, not thru it. i stay out of the water totally, and do a dry 2nd gear burnout past the box,power out, click back to 1st, a dry hop, a hard clutch bump before the line will tell me if im hooked, if not, i dry hop it again, if im not hooked before the line, im not going to be hooked at the line and my pass is going to be ruined. test your traction, when your tire squels and locks, u will know it, and u need to know. line up in the rubber path, stage, and hold on. this works for me, been a long time since i wasted a pass on tire spin, good luck ke. let us know how u come out.

I do 1st gear, light it off, go to the right 2 seconds, to the left 2 seconds and roll out for 20 feet or so under power. Never(knock on wood) had problems with spinning on launch. This tire has been on for over a season and still has plenty of tread left.

Psi

If the P1 doesn't hook then its your track or too much tire pressure. I run 15 to 20 psi in mine and it hooks every time. I don't do crazy burnouts either, I spin it for probably 10 seconds or less. There was a guy here last year running 5.50's (1/8mi) and doing short burn outs like me.

37 psi Like was said above I think you have a suspension issue or track prep problem.
