Leaving #11's on the road???

OK...so Tuesday night the g/f and I went out to Open Mic Night so I could play and she could have a few drinks. On the way home, SHE asked me to do a bit of a burnout. SO, I get to an area that is clear of houses and whatnot and rev up to 2500 and drop the clutch. Lots of wheel spin but ZERO #11 on the road...and ZERO smoke from the 35" BFG A/T's. SO I try again, this time giving a little bit of brake to keep the truck stationary while I'm spinning 'em. Still...a VERY faint #11 on the road.

SO, how are you 6 spd manual guys getting good #11's??? I tried about 5 times and got minimal results.

I like leaving #1111 now thats says something. Sorry Ditty just had to go there. Had a hard time doing it in the mustang at first. It just comes with doing it alot. However you don't want to do it too much tires are expensive. I would say stand on the brake just a little longer to get the tires smokin a bit more and that should do the trick. Also think about a 2nd gear start.

Well, I was giving the brake and I could hear the rear tires slowing down...like the rear brake pressure was too much. I dunno. Maybe I should invest in some stockers for practice.

I've got the old drums on the back makes it easier to start in first hit the brakes lightly then full throttle or dump the clutch at 3000 in 2nd that seems to do quite nicely

How do you leave #11 with a front wheel drive car. That is what I haven't been able to figure out.

Never thought of that. I have always driven rear wheel drive until the wifes Focus and it really needs the tires warmed up.
