Getting prepared for burnout comp... help!

Hey guys, I wanna have a go at this burnout comp coming up and tonight i tried my first attempt in my car. I have a 3.9L Auto with LSD Diff, well I put the brake on about halfway with my left foot, and then floored the accelerator.... result being that the car surges forward like it doesn't even care I have the brake on.

Tried again with about 2/3rds brake... again car goes flying forwards. GRRR. Do I have to push the brake fully on to get the car to stay still and tyres to spin up? I'm afraid to do this because I think if I do something will probably pop.

Help me!!

Burnout comp... yeah i'll meet you there...
You have to have the auto in 1st gear with the break firmly applied, depending if your auto is powerfull enough it should begin to crank em over, then you can lettem smoke up for a bit, then slowly ease off the breaks untill you peel away and do a decent burnout.

Re: Getting prepared for burnout comp... help!

might have to use line lockers on the rear brakes
put a clamp on the rear flexable line that connects
diff to the body and then bleed both rear brakes incase of pressure in the line and check thought the night incase some pressure builds up
and rember to remove it on the drive home.

some time it takes a bit of a donut to get it started then apply the brakes thats the only way my fairlane smokes 277 lsd`s suck
or a bit of lube the only other way but real men dont need lube.

Re: Getting prepared for burnout comp... help!

The way i find it the easiest is put ur foot flat to the floor and as soon as u do that just hit the brakes at the exact same time as hard as u can. After about 1 second u will lose traction then just softly leave your foot on the brake. This will keep you goin for ages if you wanna stop just let go of the brake and u will still be pullin a burnout for about another 10 seconds just you will be moving while doing it and making alot of noise :)

Re: Getting prepared for burnout comp... help!

Put some wind screen water jets under the rear whell arch. The fill the tank with washing liquid, squirt it onto the r5eatr wheels, and hey presto :)

Id do the line locker thing (xf351gt has written about).

Good luck

Re: Getting prepared for burnout comp... help!

My mate entered at Easter Nats. Did a MASSIVE burnout in CRAP 4cyl Corolla. It was pretty unbelievable for the car. His trick was to soak the rear tyres in a tank of Desil Fule :) Made a hell of alot of smoke. I thought it would catch fire but it didnt.
Dont use dishwashing liquid, u will loose smoke!

Re: Getting prepared for burnout comp... help!

Diesel fuel!? WTF? What a tactic! I'd have thought that it'd get too hot and catch fire myself also but if it works, can't complain!

Re: Getting prepared for burnout comp... help!

Another thing I've seen my mates do is use tyres with lots of tread - 4WD tyres!! And soak them in diesel.
