Default How do I spin the tires?!?!?!?!?!

Ok, I'm having a lot of trouble with this.
I have a basically stock engine except the bbk longtubes and flowmasters...(Im saving up for the TF Track Heat)
I just got my license on the 5th and I haven't really gotten on my car lately because I needed some stuff worked out first.
Although I have everything straightened out and I got on it early this morning and just smoked the tires (it was wet outside so that added a little assistance) and after it dried up today I tried it again and I failed...miserably. Then even later I had one of my friends with me and tried to show off a little bit, although all I showed him was a quick take off...Anyone care to take a noob through the step of how to really spin the rubber off the tires?

for automatics, just press the brake and gas at the same time, for a 5 speed just rev the engine to 4000-5000rpm and drop the clutch, hit the gas and move your left foot to the brake.

My brothers 96 cobra is real easy...you can be in 1st or 2nd and open the throttle and they'll spin all day...
I guess I don't have that much hp...
I don't want to do it often...just once or twice...I'm not trying to buy new tires yet

So just to confirm this...I rev it up...drop the clutch...and press the brake while I hold on the gas?
I'm not trying to mess anything up, and I just want to make sure I have this straight.
