Burnout Tips?

I am thinking about putting my worn out factory tires on and going down to the burnout competition at the local cruise night. Other than press the brake and floor it are there any other tips you guys have?

I ve found that if you gradually bring the rpms up to about 1500, and start to brake traction. then you can big foot it. stay on the brakes a little, and keep it straight, moving at about 2 mph but the speedometer says like 40 mph kinda cool. At least that's what works for me.

+1 on the bleach. youll get a ton of white smoke. also might wanna leave it in 1st gear so it dont shift into drive and bog down.

I start out with break, floor it, and as the truck slowly moves I slowly apply more break. don't slam the break! I just keep it at a creep and once the turbo spools and see those rpms jump. I let off the break
