Bill Lewis of Wilmington, DE, had his hands full in Superchips Open Comp. Well off his best e.t. of 9.54/139, Bill made the mistake of leaving hard-4,000 rpm-on the trans brake his first run. "Big mistake! I'm going to leave on the foot brake at 1,400. I've done it before on hot days like this, and it works." For big-power street cars like his, Bill also recommends a small burnout, just enough to clean the tires. "A big greasy burnout gets the tires too hot."
