After you're signaled to the burnout box, you want to center yourself through the water and stop at the first cone. From there, press the brake firmly with your left foot and bring the brake pressure up to 800 pounds. Once you're up to pressure, press and hold the line-lock button on the shifter. You can then let go of the brake pedal and stab the throttle to heat the tires up. Count off one second, then release the line-lock and drive through the burnout at wide-open throttle until the second cone. While you're slowing down, you'll want to shift into Neutral and apply the brakes softly to a stop. Believe it or not, this is actually where a lot of students end up having problems, which can cause them to repeat a run.
