In a nutshell you push a button to lock only the front brakes which obviously leaves the rear brakes disengaged. Drag racers have been using them for decades. That way you dont have to put any adverse wear on brakes. Hold the button, light em up, let go and your tires are heated, not your brakes! You wouldnt need somthing like that unless you running at the strip quite often. It would still be cool to have on a D/D though.

hehe, sounds like a lot of fun (for you not for your tires)
could i get the same effect if i just remove the rear breaks?. that would save some weight too -

gets me thinking, you know how bycicles have separate break handles for each wheel - what if cars had two break pedals, one for fornt and one for back -
but then we would need 3 feet to stop the car. oh well.

(yes im kidding - im a newbie but not a moron )

hehe

And BTW don't try to do it with the E-brake on in a RWD car. You will only screw up the brakes and make your car work harder. (And it won't stand sill.)

If you weren't kidding about that then I will say HELL NO, DON'T DO IT. Too much strain on your front brakes for everyday driving.

arent like 80% of your braking on yuor front brakes anyways? but neways, i beleive ANYTHING will do a burnout if u want it to bad enough, if u cant, just go in reverse at 40 then shove it in drive and push the gas or if u had a 8cyl, just pop the clutch

wtf? How does o/d have anything to do w/ pretending to be a manual?

I know you were joking, but still, wtf? And when I drive stick I don't roll backwards... Heel + toe = GO!
i quoted the wrong part. i meant to quote the manually shifting the auto part. my bad.

and about pushing my stang, i cant. the rear end is out and so are the front wheels and brakes. so there! lol.

Default RE: burnout question

i've done burnouts a couple of times in my stang. it's manual and what i do is pop the clutch. i once had this really sick burnout. the only problem is that i come really close to red lining in it and what people tell me is that in the middle of a burnout shift to 2nd and do it from there. i've tried it and it seems nearly impossible to do. any suggestions?
