Default RE: Brake stands are harder than I though

if u wanna brake stand put it in neutral and rev it and while its revving push ur foot on the brake to the floor let off the gas put it in 1st and let it rip (keep ur foot on the brake)

dont rev it to 7k are u serious

i rev mine to like 2500rpm's and my car goes sideways hahaha

stangs are incredibly easy to brake loose

is that how you warm up the tires before running at the track?
Warm em at the track basically the same way Mr Twig says.
Cept this time start in second.
Rev to about 3k while holding your right foot sideways on the brake and gas.
Drop the clutch and keep the rpms around 4500-5000ish to heat your slicks nice and good for about 8 seconds.
Let off the brake and roll forward.

88GT's advice did the trick. starting reving at 3 grand made everything all good. I only hit 6.9 7 grand on my second attempt entirely by accident. I just came back from smoking lots of rubber. I did countless dounuts so much fun. Unfortunally my right tires is a lot more gone than my left. Does this mean I need to rebuilt my rear end?

I say I nearly got it down just hard enough so the car stops.
