hold the brake as you gradually let off the clutch and push in the gas.

Friend of mine had a 5 speed 92 4 banger.

He used to rev up and pop the clutch then catch the car with the brake like 3 feet later and just stand on it for like 30 seconds.

All this going on next to the highway at the gas station I worked at.

Why I got fired you ask??

i just rev mine and pop the clutch at around 3500 and just let loose gobs of smoke. i can just sit there for a few seconds before the drivers side starts to catch and pull me along, but if i want i can hit the ebrake(since im fwd) and sit in one spot and roast them. but i havent done that in a while(got good tires now that cost).

my buddy had a 89 5.0. he would heel toe it. have his right foot heel on the brake and his toes on the gas, and his left foot just the clutch. hed hold the brake and gas down just a little bit, then ease out on the clutch, then hit the gas, pop the clutch and put the left foot on the brake and the right on the gas and let slip the dogs of war.

on a automatic you can just hold the brake with the left and hit the gas with the right, then let off on the brake just till the car barely wants to move, then go full throttle and use the brake to control if you want to move forward a bit or just sit there and roast them.

what can you do to make your car have both wheels burnout instead of just one?

not true

a burnout is simply pealing rubber as you launch

a brakestand is when you hit the brake after letting off the clutch and gas it

hold the brake against the floor and press the gas tires start spinning around 2k

if its not against the floor my trans will pull me along. tbird can vouch for me on that,can start off in 1st and idle around and up steep hills thanks to the beefy trans but behind a stock motor

it seems like everyone wants to hold down the brake hard. Just to clarify, I usually don't have to push the brakes down very far at all. Maybe it works both ways.

lol in my opinion that powerbraking where you drop the clutch and just sit there and burn rubber is pretty cool but can ruin a clutch really really quick, trust me i blew my clutch all to hell and back doing it but that didnt change my mind about doing it again, since then ive only done this once but in my mustang normally all i will do just rev the car as high as i can go and just drop the clutch then gradually keep tapping the brake and walla a good burnout and a cheap one at that no new tires like ever couple months, lol. Oh yeah and a good question in my mustang i knowi dont have a red line chip but when it gets to like 5200rpm the car will just sit there and just ( room room room room room ) it sounds cool but why in the hell does it do this, cause i know my buddies 2004 mustang doesnt do this and it was manufactured the same month mine was and he has the 3.9 aswell??????

if you have an auto you hold the brake and push the gas, the rear brakes are not as strong as the front so they will spin and the front will hold. You can also just floor it and do one if you have enough power. For a manual car... its not nearly as easy.

you have to hold the brake and clutch, get on the gas fast and come off the clutch also, hold the brake and gas and do the deed... then get back on the clutch when you let off fast.

I drive around the waterbox, pull into the staging lanes, put the brake to the floor, mash the gas just enough to make them chip a little bit, stage, then cut a 2.0 60'. Every time. I need some ET Streets.

A burnout happens when two tires, that love each other very much, get together and put a dime under a cabbage leaf, then the smoke happends.

with street tires youre not supposed to do a burn out, but since its the track, its prolly the only place you can do one and get away with it.

street tires dont generally get stickier the hotter they are. they are designed to grip their maximum how they are. roasting them wont make a difference.

slicks, on the other hand.......

all rubber gets softer as it heats up...it just that street tires won't get "sticky" like drags do so there is no point.

if you're runnon street tires, just do a quick 1-2 sec burnout to clean the dirt/water off o fthem and you are good to go. Not doing any burnout is dumb, and doing a massive one is even more so.

One thing to remember about doing a brakestand, your rear brakes are still being applied, and you are spinning through them. This will cause your rear brake pads to wear alot faster and lead to a rear rotor warp. If you do brakestands alot invest in a line lock which will lock your front brakes and not your rears, keeps you from messing up the rear rotors.
