Default Question regarding burnouts

I know people say that if you aren't doing a burnout at the track then drive around the water box, because water gets on the track and makes traction worse for everyone else. What about rear drive cars that do burnout, doesn't water still get on the track from their front wheels?

Yes they should do that.

The Front Drivers however sometimes just go right up to it with their front wheels and drag it with their rear wheels.

If you have no intention of doing a burnout (AWD), yes, please go around.

Depending on what tires you run and if you can do a burnout go around. If you are running street tires with a decent amount of tread on them, go around. Otherwise water will stick in the tread and then come out as you are launching, even if you do a burnout first. This makes the track wet for the next guy.

If you can't do a burnout then aways drive around. There is no point to slipping wet tires a few rotations before hooking up an AWD car.
