just enough to clean them off. if you're not happy with the nittos try bfg's, won't last as long as nittos it's a softer tire which hooks better on the street.

Anyone can loose traction when you just drop it like that. Play with the clutch and practice your launch. Practice makes perfect. And then save up for a 12bolt
