Default Smoking your tires

Has anyone smoked their tires, while just driving? A guy at my track did, he got stuck on a corner and smoked em pretty good while waiting for the cornal marshal. Is there anything you can put on your tires to make them smoke more? I can get my micro's tires to smoke alittle when I drive it, buy want more.

Street racers who want lots of smoke for show will sometimes put a little puddle of bleach on the ground and then do a burnout in the bleach. It makes lots of smoke. But that is for 1:1 scale cars, I dont know if it would work for RC.

I've heard of a video that floating around that has a guy taking his pan car against a wall and nailing the gas with some mod in it. Appearently he got it to smoke pretty good. I havn't seen it myself though.

foam tyres smoke up well if you take heavy cuts off them while they are on the tyre truer

I've never been able to smoke my tires, they're just too hard to get down in the bong.

I was able to make some smoke with some old foams. Just put your car against somthing solid and nail the throttle.

mafiaracers- it was actually a tc3 with a brushless motor in it. www.dualbl.com
