How do you drop the clutch and hold the brake and throttle at the same time to do this?

Just curious?

Three foot it Chuck!! My foot is wide enough to place my heel on the accelerator and brake. My Left foot works the clutch pedel. Sometimes I'll clutch with my left and brake with my left as well.

They call it Heel toe.

It's really neat to watch someone who is really good at it. Kinda like a tap dance.


Part's broken: Tires, Brakes, Rear end, U-joints, Clutch, Pocket Book, There fun though!!

Ever watch NASCAR...?

The winner almost always does a grandstand burnout and they all use standard trans... (funny only 1 race was ever won with an automatic)

Gawd that is such a moronic thing to do! Its fun whoo-eee, yes sir fun, fun, fun!!!

OK, you can also break your transmission mount and dislocate your crossmember from the unibody which is a very serious mess to try and fix.

I do it all the time, all you do is "pop" the clutch and feather the brake while holding it wide open, in my album thats what I did..the drum brakes on a mustang dont hold as well as the front disk brakes so is fairly easy to do...and I have 4.10 rear gears and do this in second gear also, Ill let it set there for a little bit, then Ill hold it to red line and release the brake...pretty fun, but very hard on tires..
