How do you guys with manuals get a good burnout going? Auto is easy...slam the brakes and then the gas... manuals giving me some issues, so I turn to the diesel comp guys, since we have no gas comp forum.
Stop the truck while in first and just hold the gas down?
Heel toe braking, this is a technique used for downshifting when racing. But im sure it would work for a burn out. Just use the ball of your foot to press the brake, while doing that turn your foot and use your heel to press the gas at the same time. Hope that makes sence.

Zach, usually the way I do it is put it in second gear try to pull the truck to a stop with the brakes and lay down on the throttle. Sooner or later the rear tires are going to overcome wanting to stop, and let the burnout ensue!!! Alot of times my front tires start skidding, but it will hook sooner or later. In my gassers, I did the heel toe thing and just dropped it. That makes me nervious in this machine. It's got enough torque to really tear some shizzle up. Though I'm sure it would burn the tires just the same. Sooner or later, alcohol will end the debate of weather or not I should drop it. I'll let you know when it does.
hold the gas down drop the clutch and stab the brake never lettin off the throtle.i have ben noted to use a vice grip with the jaws wraped in blacktape to pinch off the rear rubber brake line to get a nice rosty toasty goin for pic's dont ride around with it pinched off tho

Thanks for all the help guys. I used RubberDuck's way, as that was kinda what I was thinking beforehand, coast to a slow roll, hit the brakes, then the gas, and increase both. Tires unlock, truck comes to a quick stop, and voila...lots of smoke for my entertainment!
Thanks guys, I'm sure all methods will come in handy!
Yes a good line lock kit is the best way and a lot better for the truck.
