    Ya, some vehicles are not made to do an in place burn out without modifications.

    There are electronics trying to keep all of the wheels turning at the same speed by controling the brakes.

    try it with the rear tires in water. or even better dump some bleach on them. That should light them up.

    none yet ...
    it's called a line-lock

    it's how you heat and sticky up the tires for traction before a drag race

    obviously, slightly wet rear meats helps your cause

    heavy on the brake pedal, locking up your brakes

    get on the throttle, feel the rear engage, and slowly bring up the RPMs,
    while coming off the brake pedal

    come off the brakes enough to let the rear loose, but to keep the fronts locked ...

    add more throttle, slowly bringing it up to 4k

    the rear should brake loose, and you should start smoking the tires
    once they're ripping strong ... come slowly off the brakes until you're slowly rolling forward, spinning and smoking the back tires ... with your foot over, but not depressing, the brake pedal



    i am not advocating street racing, or reckless displays of speed, merely trying to give a "how to" on heating up your meat :D

    Line lock is the best way but if you are not running the 1/4 it would not be worth the cost.

    As you are trying different methods beware of axel wrap!!!!
    If it starts hopping the rear end stop stop stop.
    I have seen a lot of damage done to drivelines, U-joints, and even broken transmission tail shafts.

    Have fun.;)

    just gas it, don't bother with the riding the brake crap. Youll end up breaking something and wearing out your tires faster.

    how about dont burn out, your wasting rubber, your taking years of live off your truck, causing strain on the motor, endless reasons not to do it. Treat your truck the way you like to be treated.. not like crap.

    You mean, like so?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAVtzczGBZc

    In an auto, hold the brake and hit the gas.

    In a manual, I do the heel/toe method. Left foot controls the clutch, and right foot heel is on the brake while the toes are on the gas. I start mine in second, cause my car has the power to do so, and saves me from shifting during the burnout.

    Line locks, as mentioned, are great, but not worth it, unless you're at a track every weekend, and you get to the point where a great burnout is key to you getting the time you desire. How they work: Pull up, push brake pedal all the way down, activate line lock, and release brakes. Then hit the gas, and warm the tires to where you want. The line lock will hold only the front two brakes, relieving the rears from pointless wear.

    My advice, there's no point in doing one in a truck. It's not worth the stress on everything to create a little smoke.

    i had a crazy youth..so i understand. it is fine balance between gas and brake. get them spinning and touch the brake to get rig to stand still.

    having said that, as i understand it; a transfer case (if it is a 4by) doesnt like spinning wheels. or so i have been told.
