Stupid Question

I've seen guys at the strip driving sticks doing burnouts ad loading their turbo before they take off. My question is since I've never ran my truck on the strip is how do they do this? Do they have and extra foot or something?

i believe you have to put your left foot on the clutch and the right half on the brake and half on the accelerator using the toe end of your foot to push the accelerator down farther. I have a 6speed but have never tried this due to my slipping clutch so hopefully someone who has a little experience with this will chime in and correct me if im wrong.

powerstroker27 has this one covered. It's called "heel-toeing", and is the only way to properly launch a load-dependant engine such as a turbodiesel with a manual transmission.

Thanks I'll have too play around with it tommorrow. I just never really knew. With my upgraded brakes I will kill the engine before I can build any boost. I thought maybe the guys I've sen doing this had double disc clutches. Powerstroker27 get a good aftermarket clutch and you won't have to worry about slipping anymore. I can't make mine slip no matter how hard I try. I got the South Bend Con FE. I think it's advertised at 550hp but it will hold more.

Okay so if I understand My entire left foot should be just on the clutch. My heel on my right foot should be one the brake and the toe end of my right foot should be on the throttle. Is that right? Looks like it will take some practice and getting used to.

This i fully understand but my wallet and bank account have something else to say at the moment. Hopefully by this spring i can have the money put aside to get a clutch and then i will be able to hook my chip back up and actually be able to accelerate at a faster than grandma speed without things slipping.

Ok I'm an expert at heel toeing, and I put my toes on the brake and heel on the gas. Not the other way around

So can you completely let out on the clutch when you do this? I'm just trying to learn how to do a burnout and stay pretty much in one spot. I've got a friend with an auto in dodge and he makes me look bad by doing burnouts all the time. I know I've got the faster truck but I can't do a burnout to save my life.

Well i guess it could work either way then. Have you tried it both ways to see if there is a better way or more comfortable way of doin it? I would like to know so when i get my clutch i can show my rice burner friends how to do a real burnout .


Lance_I,
do you have any pics of your truck? it looks like from your sig that you have the same thing as me except for you already have most of the mods that i want on mine. Also, how does the con fe clutch handle in normal daily driving and when ever you really get on it?

I've got pics but can't figure out how to upload them. I'll work it later. My clutch feels completely normal. I did have to removethe tension spring after I installed it because it was way to soft. Now I can't really tell the difference between it and the way my stocker felt. It's great for daily driving but if you wanted one that's a little more drivable get the Con Ofe. I had it before upgrading to the con fe. Really gettin into it it holds like no other so you get planted to the seat pretty good. You would think me being a carhauler and using one foot for the brake and gas all the time when I'm loading I could do it in my truck. I can't get comfortable doing the heel toe no matter which way I try.

well if you really want to be able to do that big burnout without tearing up your brakes and rotors then another thing you could do would be to get a line lock kit. That way you wouldn't have to use the brakes and would be able to control everything easier, plus not tear things up as much.

I just talked to my dad and he has a B&M launch control that he's gonna give me. I gotta feeling I'll need tires by the end of the week.

Heel & toeing is most often used in road racing, like Tim said. Usually used to downshift smoothly from say 5th gear to 2nd gear. You clutch w/ the left foot, while breaking w/ the right toe (otherwise you'll be going way too fast for 2nd gear), while also heeling the accelerator to blip the RPMs way up to where they'll need to be in 2nd gear. Then you go through the turn, and are already in 2nd gear to power out of it hard.

I think if you do a search on google for performance manual driving or heel-toe or something like that, you can probably find little video clips of an instructor driving along demonstrating the technique.
