    no, just cause thats what it does. when you brake torque it, its applyin some braking power in the back too. with your tires spinnin and your brakes applied its naturally goin to wear them. after a couple brake torque youll have em wore down. the first time theyll prolly glow red and stink

    don't use your e brake. use your pedal, the ebrake goes to the rear only

    rev up to about four grand, dump the clutch and mash the brake as quick as you can. watch your revs. deff not the best thing to sit there and let it bounce off the limiter. if you're feeling tenacious on the stock gearing, try and grab second. other than that let er eat.

    you can put down some bleach or some oil for more smoke but itll get all over

    . . . . no . . . . :nonono: . . . because if you use the e-brake it won't hold the car.

    The FRONT brakes don't smoke . . . they hold the car in place.

    All of that said, do it right and get a line lock. You should try to acheive rear wheel speed of about 150 mph.

    Should look like this:

    Unless you are a regular at the track save your money on a line lock. A line lock is a valve that is actuated by a switch inside your car that allows you to push your brake pedal, hit the line lock switch, and then take your foot off of the brake pedal. By pushing the switch you make the valve close so that pressure is held only in the front brakes so you don't smoke your rear brakes at all.
    You didn't mention whether your car was a manual or automatic. If it's auto, its more simple. Put your tranny in #1 and put a foot on the brake just enough to hold you there while pressing the gas pedal at the same time. They will start to smoke without a problem. If you have them spinning fast enough and have the revs to play with, then try shifting into second. If you have stock gearing or your tires are too sticky, you'll probably hear your motor not liking this much. If you have a manual tranny you'll have to dump the clutch to get the wheels spinning. Your car will want to take off so you'll have to be quick about getting your foot on the brake. Keep the revs up and you're doing it. If you're going to do a 2nd gear burnout in a maunal, be sure that you have the gearing to do it. 3.27's and lower aren't something that you want to do this with. Do the 2nd gear burnout just like you did with it in 1st gear, if you have the rear end gears for it, it might bog down a bit at first, but it will pick up quickly. In either maual or auto make sure that you power out of each of the burnouts. Meaning, don't do your burnout and then just push in the clutch or take your foot off the gas. Your tires will be really sticky even with all-season tires, letting off the gas will make them go from spinning fast to just stopping which is going to trash your drivetrain. Hope this helps. I guess I'm to blame for the black marks that this guy is going to leave all over the streets now :dunno: Be SAFE AND SMART ABOUT IT!!

    Yep. That burnout was in third gear at over 7,000 rpm on a 3.73 gear and a 28 inch tire . . . so about 150.

    im reading all these replies and people telling him to dump the clutch and then quickly get on the brakes..... am I the only person who uses the left foot to operate the clutch while i use the heel of my right foot to hold the brakes and the toes of my right foot to operate the gas? :dunno:
